Greek Affairs Mission

The K-State Fraternity and Sorority community is dedicated to the personal and professional development of members through a wide range of activities and experiences. We are committed to promoting life-long involvement in individual organizations, as well as our collective community to positively impact the lives of both undergraduate and alumni members while building and maintaining a fraternity and sorority community worthy enough to serve the University and the people of Manhattan.

Parents and Families

Welcome to Greek Affairs and to Kansas State University! We encourage you to take a few minutes to browse through this website and to consider why more than 800,000 college students nationwide have chosen to become members of Greek organizations. As a parent of a potential fraternity or sorority member, you'll learn about the incredible opportunities available for your son or daughter.

The Greek community at Kansas State University has been in existence since 1913, with a continuing tradition of excellence. Through the years we have been a community that fosters academic excellence, leadership ability, philanthropic services, and active contributions to both the campus and Manhattan communities. Our Greek community consists of 19 sororities and 30 fraternities, with a total membership of more than 3,000 undergraduate students. While each organization maintains its own activities, traditions, and national affiliations, each is founded on similar principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and lifelong friendship.

At Kansas State University we are proud to have been recognized as one of the top Greek communities in the country. Twenty percent of K-State's undergraduate students are Greek members. Our all-Greek grade point average is consistently higher than the all-university average for the past 20 years. The possibilities available to your son or daughter are numerous, with the potential to provide a lifetime of growth and encouragement.

Our Greek community has developed extensive self-governing policies concerning human rights, hazing, and substance abuse. In addition, the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council, comprised of undergraduate chapter members, serve as the governing bodies for the fraternities and sororities.

The Greek experience at K-State provides a safe and fun way to maximize the college experience. Your son or daughter will also find personal growth and development extending far beyond his or her years on campus.

We look forward to beginning this journey with you and working with both you and your student(s) in the future. Please let us know how we can help you.
