Gentlemen, Start Your Chariots
As you mount your two-wheeled chariot, you can feel your opponents’ presence next to you on the starting line. The arena is filling with spectators and their cries grow louder, chanting a familiar battle cry. But you’re only focused on one thing—winning.

Every Homecoming, hundreds of Butler students and alumni gather to watch fraternities compete in the high-stakes Chariot Races. It’s one of Butler’s oldest traditions and just one of the many Greek Life events happening all year round.
Starting spring semester of your freshman year, you have the option of joining and living in one of the five fraternities or seven sororities on campus. It’s a good way to meet new people, build lasting relationships, develop leadership skills, and participate in philanthropic, academic, and social activities.
