Fraternity and Sorority Life
The University of Pittsburgh Fraternity and Sorority Life is comprised of 39 fraternities and sororities belonging to the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, or the Collegiate Panhellenic Association. Fraternity and sorority life communities across the nation are organizations rich in tradition and dedicated to the maintenance of honor, integrity, and the values set forth by our founders. We strive to inspire our members to be successful both as students and leaders, while fostering a strong sense of philanthropy and brotherhood/sisterhood. Joining a fraternal organization is not only a way to make new and lifelong friends, but it creates the opportunity to become even more involved on campus and in the community. While working towards the growth of our own individual organizations, Pitt Greeks have been significant contributors to both the University and city of Pittsburgh as well. They are involved in an overwhelming number of other student groups, hold jobs and internships, and go on to become some of the most loyal University alumni. In addition to serving our school, we also recognize and stress the importance of philanthropy. Over the past six years, fraternity and sorority members have hosted a wide variety of activities (including Pitt Dance Marathon and Greek Sing) to raise $500,000 for the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. That pledge was completed in the fall of 2011 and was the largest student organization donation that the Cancer Institute has ever received. Pitt Greeks have chosen the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to be the recipient of a three year $300,000 fundraising committment and have already raised over $150,000.
It is truly our honor to be able to serve as the Council Presidents of such an extraordinary community. The dedication and passion that our members have shown for the University of Pittsburgh Fraternity and Sorority Life has been nothing short of inspiring; it is that same dedication and passion that makes the Greek system here a strong and timeless one.
