Fraternity & Sorority Life

DePauw has a rich & long-standing tradition of Fraternity & Sorority Life on campus

Within each Greek-lettered organization lives a rich history, filled with purpose, values, and an everlasting bond of siblinghood. In joining a Greek-lettered organization, students will learn about an organization's storied past, engage and grow with their active chapter, and determine how their voice will add to their chapter’s future. We believe that through collective action, and a commitment to fraternal bonds and values, fraternity and sorority members can change the world.

At DePauw, there are currently twenty-two Greek-lettered organizations. These fraternities and sororities belong to one of our four governing councils; The Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, and The Panhellenic Council

The resources provided on this site will help you to learn more about fraternities and sororities on our campus and answer some of the initial questions you may have about joining Fraternity & Sorority Life at DePauw. For more information about the many opportunities available, please visit the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, located in the Union Building.

Welcome Back Rho Tau:

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is excited to announce the return of the Rho Tau Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. to DePauw's campus!

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has a storied and powerful history. Founded on December 4th, 1906, at Cornell University, Alpha Phi Alpha is the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African American Men. Founded by seven college men, they recognized the need for a strong bond of brotherhood among African descendants in the country. Since the Fraternity's founding in 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African Americans and people of color around the world.

Thanks to the support of University staff, the Alpha Phi Alpha Districts team, and Rho Tau Alumni, we are excited to welcome Rho Tau back to campus.
