Greek Life

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Binghamton University provides guidance and support to over 50 fraternities and sororities. At Binghamton, we offer a diverse mix of fraternities and sororities with the hopes that everyone who wants to join a group finds one that closely matches his or her values and personality. While our groups support different philanthropies and causes, and have different histories and traditions, all of our organizations exist to make men better men and women better women through fostering the ideals of unity, respect, scholarship, service and leadership:

  • Unity

    We pride ourselves on the strong relationships that exist within our fraternity/ sorority community. These relationships provide the opportunities for open and honest dialogue while still maintaining an environment of respect. As a larger community with many diverse activities hosted by various fraternity/ sorority chapters, the opportunity to collaborate with and participate in these events supports the global education we receive at Binghamton University.

  • Respect

    We strive each day to create a fraternity/ sorority community where each member is welcoming and approachable. The promotion of self-respect is extremely important in our development of healthy and productive members, and as members we make every effort to present an image representative of the high ideals our organizations were founded upon. We employ an open-minded, cooperative approach to problem solving and continuously embrace the diversity of our community.

  • Scholarship

    As responsible fraternities and sororities at Binghamton University, we understand that learning is the primary focus of the college experience. Our chapters pride themselves on high academic achievement and hold their members to a standard of excellence. Our collective GPA as a community continues to remain above a 3.0, and all interested students must have a 2.5 GPA or higher to join a sorority or fraternity. Chapters use both formal and informal strategies to encourage the academic success of their members.

  • Service

    A common goal of all Binghamton University fraternities and sororities is to better their communities through service. Greek chapters at Binghamton serve the local community and beyond through countless initiatives. Chapters annually raise tens of thousands of dollars for various causes and perform over ten thousand hours of community service in an effort to show the community that we are a values driven organizations.

  • Leadership

    Leadership embodies the values of Greek Life and is one of the greatest benefits of joining a fraternity or sorority at Binghamton University. Members have the opportunity to hold positions in their chapter, governing council, or national board, and through these positions they are able to implement change on campus and in the surrounding community. Members receive intense training and gain valuable skills through these experiences that they utilize for the rest of their lives.
