Fraternity and Sorority Life
Fraternity and sorority membership is a lifestyle option for undergraduate students. Approximately 23 percent of the students at the University of Rochester belong to Greek-letter organizations and have the option of living in chapter houses or special interest residential areas after the freshman year. Seven of the 15 sororities and eight of the 16 fraternities have living areas on the River Campus. Membership ranges from one (part of multi-university chapters) to groups of 60 or more.
Each year, fraternities and sororities sponsor formal and informal recruitment events throughout the year. This is an organized time for individuals who may be interested in fraternity and sorority life to meet with members of the chapters to learn what benefits are afforded by affiliation. Freshman students are not allowed to join a fraternity or sorority until the spring term. If you are considering fraternity or sorority life as a future option, Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, the fraternity and sorority governing councils (Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, and Panhellenic Association), and individual Greek-letter organizations are prepared to answer your questions.
