Welcome to

Fraternity & Sorority Life at GW!

At GW, Fraternity & Sorority Life is just one part of a balanced undergraduate experience. The fraternity or sorority experience is a great way to create a sense of home within the wonders of GW and Washington, DC. It is all about friendship, leadership, scholarship, community service, philanthropy, and brotherhood/sisterhood that compliment your classroom experience. It’s about being part of a community with over 2,500 undergraduate Greek-affiliated students on campus. It’s about enhancing the GW and DC communities through service and social functions. It’s about traditions and establishing life-long friendships.

Fraternity and sorority members at GW are: involved in virtually all other student organizations, perform thousands of hours of community service, write for both campus newspapers, in leadership positions with the Student Association and Program board, on the Student Judicial Board, CI Cabinet members, varsity athletes, work internships throughout DC, spend a semester overseas, and so much more. Their chapter membership allows them to bring those experiences back to a family-like group to share and learn. Their fraternity or sorority membership accentuates their GW experience in a way that connects them to the entire community.

Fraternity & Sorority Life has a rich history of over 150 years at GW and is one of our most enduring traditions. These men and women are committed to their academic success, volunteer time in the community, develop and strengthen their leadership skills, and form a network that reaches far beyond the campus boundaries.

If you are interested in joining a fraternity or sorority but are looking for a different option to the social Greek organizations, the Alternative Greek Council member organizations are available!  Check out the AGC and its member groups!
