Greek Leadership Retreat

The annual Greek Leadership Retreat will take place February 14-16, 2014. This year's theme, Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together, is a throwback inspired by the picture on the right. Staff members found this image in the archives while researching for the throwback Thursday (#tbt) social media campaign. Leaders will learn to work together to drive positive change within Elon's Greek Community.


Happy 125th Birthday, Elon!

As a university, Elon is celebrating 125 years of scholarship! The Office of Greek Life will celebrate Elon’s 125th through a campaign that ties our values and celebrating 125 together. Look forward to initiatives to promote each of Greek Life’s core values and the 125th! Our 6 values include intellectual development, effective leadership, responsible citizenship, inclusive environments, values integration, and lifelong connections.


Greek Life at Elon University

The fraternity and sorority community at Elon has enhanced the lives of thousands of men and women. While our groups support different philanthropies and causes, and have different histories and traditions, all of our fraternities and sororities support the following:

  • brotherhood or sisterhood
  • high scholastic goals
  • service to the community
  • leadership on campus and beyond
  • and the betterment of individuals.

Joining a fraternity or sorority is a responsibility to uphold the values and ideals of our groups and our collective community. 

The Elon Greek community consists of three governing councils:

  • Panhellenic Council
    • Chapters: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Delta, Phi Mu, Sigma Kappa, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Zeta Tau Alpha
  • Interfraternity Council
    • Chapters: Delta Upsilon, Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Chi, Sigma Pi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Zeta Beta Tau
  • National Pan-Hellenic Council
    • Chapters: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

These three councils provide a governance structure for the 24 chapters, and the overall direction of the community is guided by the professional staff in the Office of Greek Life.

The Office of Greek Life at Elon University provides guidance and support to 24 international fraternities and sororities. Our community offers a diverse mix of fraternities and sororities with the hopes that everyone who wants to join a group finds one that closely matches their values and personalities.
