Has your student expressed interest in learning more about Fraternity and Sorority Life at Mason? If so, you may have questions about what types of organizations comprise the Mason Greek community. Fraternity and Sorority Life has been a dynamic part of the Mason community and student life since its inception. Beginning with two fraternities and one sorority, our community has grown to include four councils that are comprised of 41 Greek letter organizations with a diverse population of around 1,800 students.
The fraternity and sorority community at Mason prides itself on teaching the pillars of leadership, service, philanthropy, friendship and scholarship. Last year, our members reported over 8,000 hours of service and raised over $100,000 for local and national philanthropies. In addition, Mason fraternity and sorority members participate in and host a variety of activities that directly reflect our core values. Our students are leaders across campus in various roles including Student Government, Resident Assistants, Patriot Leaders and officers in more than 450 student organizations.
Membership in a fraternity or sorority organization is based on scholarship, leadership and community service. Fraternities and sororities host membership recruitment events and informational sessions during the fall semester, which provide students with an opportunity to explore the organizations and get to know the members.
If your student is looking for a well-rounded collegiate experience, encourage them to consider membership in our fraternities and sororities!
