We encourage students to visit us to find their passion, develop ideas, and think creatively about their student organizations.

Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL)

Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) is located on the third floor at Norris. 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.

The Student Organization Resource Center (SOURCE) is a brand new resource for Student Organizations on the third floor of Norris to use as space to meet, retreat, plan events as well as wonderful space for students to use to get away with a view of the lake and many great work spaces.
