Brothers. Sisters. Leaders.

In 1840, the first fraternity at the University of Cincinnati was founded. Since then, the fraternity and sorority community at the UC includes more than 3,200 students at our Uptown, Clermont, Blue Ash, and Medical campuses. Our community currently consists of 43 chapters: 9 College Panhellenic Council chapters (CPH) + 1 associate chapter, 22 Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapters, 3 Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) chapters, and 8 National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) chapters.

Hundreds of students 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.
