Greek Life maintains pledge class size amid pandemic

  Miami University’s spring recruitment for fraternities and sororities garnered a similar number of students joining Greek Life compared to previous years before the COVID-19 pandemic.  “Our numbers were relatively the same,” said Kimberly Vance, director of the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. “We had a slight dip in the men from 2020 to 2021, as far as accepted bids.
