FratCastles was founded at Indiana University nearly two years ago where it aired exclusively on Indiana University Student Television (IUSTV). The show quickly grew and became a part of IU’s Greek community. During the 2012 fall semester, FratCastles began networking with the University of Arizona and the University of Illinois, two schools of which share similar qualities with IU in Greek culture. Before FratCastles made its next step to completely start the process of expanding to these two universities, it was important to hold off and predominately remain on IU’s campus until the new FratCastles site has been deployed and all of its wonderful features have been utilized and perfected. In the near future, FratCastles aspires to include dozens of University all across the country.
University of Arizona
The University of Arizona has a student body of approximately 39,000 students enrolled at the Tuscon campus. Nearly 4,290 of those students are part of the university’s Greek system, which accounts for over 11% of the entire student population.
University of Illinois
The University of Illinois has the largest Greek system in the world by membership, with a student body of approximately 31,000 students enrolled at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Nearly 6,700 of those students are part of the university’s Greek system, which accounts for over 22% of the entire student population.
