This study investigated whether there was a difference in the change in graduation rates exhibited at institutions that recently added a Greek system when compared with institutions that have well-established Greek systems, and institutions that have no Greek system. The National Panhellenic Council identified 33 colleges and universities in the United States as having added a Greek system to their campus between 2000 and 2015. Comparable institutions were identified and graduation rate data were collected for comparison. After finding a significant F from an ANOVA, the post-hoc test comparing the change in graduation rates of institutions with recently added Greek systems (M = 4.03) and institutions without Greek systems (M = 1.17) revealed a significant difference (HSD  = 3.83, p < 0.05). The results of this study suggest that the addition of a Greek system can have a positive overall impact on student and institutional success.
