The fraternity and sorority community at Virginia Tech is comprised of over 55 active and vibrant chapters governed by four councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC); National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC); Panhellenic Council (PHC); and the United Council of Fraternities and Sororities (UCFS).

While Virginia Tech is home to many Greek-lettered organizations (professional, honor, service, and local), the chapters listed below are currently recognized by Fraternity and Sorority Life as men’s and women’s general fraternities/sororities and receive guidance in the areas of community development, leadership and learning, and strategic planning. Each of these chapters is supported by an inter/national headquarters, which provides membership education, leadership programming, educational resources, and risk management programming materials. Alumni/ae support in the form of chapter advisory councils and alumni/ae associations aid in collaborative efforts to promote values-based, purposeful experiences for chapter members.

One aspect of understanding the community is through an overview of the fraternity and sorority community. Feel free visit the Guide to Fraternity and Sorority Life to see what's great about being Greek at Virginia Tech. Within this guide you will learn more about community development, leadership education, our governing councils, and gain insight into the chapters that make up the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. Indicators are offered for each area of chapter life based upon information provided by each chapter in the 2014 Legacy Report. The Legacy Report is a voluntary submission by the chapter, and not required. In those cases where a chapter chose not to submit a Legacy Report, no indication of chapter life is offered.What is offered in this guide should not be the sole basis for understanding the community. Members, potential members, families, and friends are encouraged to contact the chapter or Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Byron Hughes (bahughes@vt.edu) for clarification or context. Information provided is not utilized for determining annual chapter awards within the community, or other recognition.
