During the first decades of the twentieth century, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was one of the nation's leading centers of the Greek Letter movement. On this tour, you will see 15 of the 77 fraternity and sorority houses located on campus. These houses, mostly built in revival styles during the 1910s and 1920s, are outstanding examples of the most popular architectural designs of the period.
