How can your student join a fraternity or sorority?

Welcome Week Step Expo
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 39 Greek letter organizations with a diverse population of more than 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 8,200 hours of service and were afforded the opportunity to participate in an alternative spring break trip. 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 350 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 information 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 him or her to consider membership in our fraternities and sororities!
