This information is severely outdated. I'm a current member of UC and there are several errors in your information. Firstly, Kappa Delta Rho is no longer affiliated with University of Charleston. Also, Phi Delta Sorority is actually Delta Phi Delta. As for Museum and Art there is also the Frankenburger Art Gallery in the Geary Student Union that houses pieces from local (WV) artists as well as displays of Art and Interior Design Students. As for "email accounts are available to all students", Campus Cruiser emails are actually mandatory for every student to have. And there are 5 student housing buildings, not three (Brotherton [freshman dorm], Cox Hall, Middle Hall, Ratrie Hall, and Pharmacy Housing). Although I don't know the specific number of students that reside on campus, I'm certain it's more than 48%. I hope that you update this information soon. Thanks. posted May 31st, 2010 2:53 pm

More than "0%" of students are involved in the Greek life at the University of Charleston. This is offending, especially as an alumni of the Kappa Tau Epsilon sorority and the University of Charleston.
