The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life promotes the learning and development of students who affiliate with values-based fraternities and sororities. Our office supports the fraternity and sorority community in efforts to continue to be relevant and contributing members to the institution, and advocates for the academic success of all members and for opportunities through which students can integrate their values into learning.
Our three councils provide a governance structure for the 23 international fraternities and sororities, and the overall direction of the community is guided by the professional staff in the Office of Fraternity/Sorority Life. Our community offers a diverse mix of fraternities and sororities that allows all those who want to join an organization the opportunity to search for one that closely matches their values and personalities.
