Go Greek

Fraternity & Sorority Life at DePauw University

Thank you for your interest in joining a fraternal organization at DePauw University. For more than 160 years, Fraternity and Sorority Life has and continues to have a significant impact on the DePauw community. Our Greek community is unique, distinctive and historical. DePauw is proud to have both Alpha Chi Omega and Kappa Alpha Theta founded on campus.

Today, just under seventy percent of students are affiliated with a Greek-letter organization on our campus. Members of our fraternity and sorority community are leaders in many distinctive honors programs, athletic teams and various organizations and clubs on campus.  Our fraternity and sorority community on campus is comprised of twenty-six organizations, each of which ascribe to their unique histories and values, and some of which belong to a specific governing council. The information below provides a brief description of each of the four governing councils and important information on how you can join one of DePauw's fraternities and sororities.

For general information about the many opportunities for joining a fraternity or sorority at DePauw, please visit the Campus Living and Community Development Office, located on the first floor of Anderson Street Hall.
