Joining a Fraternity or Sorority
Virginia Tech is proud to host one of the largest fraternity and sorority communities in America, one that continues to grow rapidly. Approximately 5,200 students participate in the 29 IFC fraternities, 5 National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) fraternities and sororities, 13 National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities and 6 organizations in the United Council of Fraternities and Sororities (UCFS). About 20 percent of Virginia Tech’s undergraduates are members of a general fraternity or sorority.
Membership in a fraternity or sorority is one of many campus involvement opportunities at Virginia Tech that helps students make a large university seem smaller. While some fraternities and sororities offer housing options for their members, all Greek-letter organizations provide academic support, lifetime friendships, career networking, intramural athletic competition, community service, philanthropic opportunities, social activities, and outstanding leadership opportunities. Students develop a strong sense of belonging to their organization – a true home away from home – and a strong loyalty to Virginia Tech through the fraternity and sorority community. Membership is life-long and alumni engagement opportunities are numerous at both the local and national levels.
The opportunities for personal, professional, and academic success are phenomenal. If you think you are prepared to be a leader in the Virginia Tech community and are interested in gleaning leadership experience, consider joining a fraternal organization.
