Fraternity & Sorority Life
Fraternities and sororities are the premiere collegiate experience and have been a part of Northwestern since 1859, playing an important role in the lives of thousands of students and alumni. Their educational programs, social activities, service projects, and leadership development opportunities contribute much to the University community. Northwestern currently has 47 values-based chapters across four governing councils that range in mission from social to service to cultural; however each chapter was founded on the principles of scholarship, service, leadership and community.
The total membership of more than 3,000 students comprises 40 percent of the campus community.
