Sorority & Fraternity Life

Since 1873, Sorority and Fraternity life has grown to become a vital part of the history and tradition of KU.  Today, KU Greek life represents more than 4,000 students and 47 different Fraternal organizations.  Each of these organizations is a member of one of the four governing councils; the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (PHA).  The SFL community is committed to four pillars: leadership, service, scholarship, and friendship (brotherhood/sisterhood).
