Fraternity & Sorority Life

Fraternity & Sorority Life is a rich part of the history of the University of Cincinnati, with our first fraternity being founded in 1840. Today, we have 39 active fraternities and sororities, 3 governing councils, and 4 Greek honor socieities. Fraternity and Sorority Life helps over 3,000 students find their niche at a large, urban university of over 45,000 students.

Our community places an emphasis on five pillars of excellence:

  • Intellectual Development
  • Philanthropy & Service
  • Social Responsibility & Citizenship
  • Leadership Development
  • Values Integration & Personal Growth
Hundreds of men and women graduate from UC each year with a richer experience as a result of Fraternity and Sorority Life. For many students, the fraternity and sorority community is their home away from home. Fraternity and Sorority Life builds lifelong friendships, and instills a sense of pride and commitment to our alma mater.
