About Us


The purpose of Fraternity and Sorority Life is leadership development. At the University of Cincinnati, we help students find their niche at a large, urban unviersity of over 40,000 students—25,000 students alone at the main, Uptown campus.

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.
