Fraternities and Sororities
Since its beginning, the Greek community has fostered academic excellence, leadership ability and philanthropic services. While each organization maintains its own activities, traditions and national affiliations, each was founded on similar principles of scholarship, leadership, community service and lifelong friendship.

The Panhellenic Council (PHC) is comprised of thirteen Panhellenic sororities. The Panhellenic Council is an independent student organization that exists to develop and maintain sorority life and interfraternal relations. The organization promotes scholarship and leadership development while disseminates information important to sorority women to the chapters. PHC is led by eight student leaders who make up the Board of Directors. Each director is a member of a Panhellenic sorority and represents the interests of the community at large. They are elected at the end of the fall semester and serve a one-year term. Additionally, each chapter has a designated woman, known as the Panhellenic Delegate, that attends bi-weekly meetings.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is an independent student organization and serves as the governing body of its 25 member fraternities. As the governing body, IFC establishes procedures for cooperation among fraternities and coordinates recruitment, leadership programs, and other activities. The executive board consists of seven members who govern and lead chapters in the areas of community service and philanthropy, leadership development, judicial affairs, public relations, risk management, and recruitment. Each officer is a member of a fraternity and represents the interests of the community at large. They are elected at the end of the fall semester and serve a one-year term.
