Fraternities and Sororities at Northwestern

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) consists of 18 nationally-recognized fraternities at Northwestern. For the past 150 years, IFC fraternities have enriched the lives of young men at Northwestern through educational programs and activities. Today, more than 1200 men are members of IFC fraternities at NU, sharing the bonds of brotherhood and community to build long-lasting bonds and unbreakable friendships.

Multicultural Greek Council

The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) is a strong community that is constantly growing at Northwestern. The council is composed of culturally-based service-social organizations with Latina/o, Asian, South Asian and Multicultural emphasis.  These organizations are dedicated to service (both on and off campus), social advocacy and cultural awareness, as well as the development of a more unified campus-wide support network. In addition, they strive for and maintain a standard of academic distinction. MGC offers several leadership opportunities for its members and helps build long-lasting relationships throughout the council.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC) at Northwestern University consists of seven of the "Divine Nine" historically African-American fraternities and sororities. Each of the NPHC organizations evolved during a period when African Americans were denied essential rights and privileges afforded to other college students. NPHC organizations maintain high positive standards for its member organizations and ensure the perpetuation of responsibility and privilege through engaging in service to the African-American community at NU and the community at large.

The Northwestern Panhellenic Association (PHA) consists of 12 nationally-recognized chapters. Each sorority has a chapter house on the south end of Northwestern's campus. All of the organizations have a long-standing (inter)national history and traditions as many of the Northwestern chapters are more than 100 years old. Women of all backgrounds and interests are members of PHA sororities. Panhellenic women are leaders and participants in campus organizations, serve the NU and Evanston communities, and excel in the classroom.
