Are you interested in Greek life? Find your home with any of the University’s many sororities and fraternities on campus. Here’s everything you need to know about going Greek at UD. 

Panhellenic Council and Chapters

The University’s Panhellenic Council and Chapters sign-up has already passed; however, some sororities are participating in the continuous open bid process.

Recruitment Chair for Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority Ella Messick shares how joining a sorority fulfilled her dream. “Ever since I was a little girl, growing up around my cousins that were in sororities, I always knew I wanted to join one just like them,” Messick says. “I wanted to find where I belonged on campus, a place that I could call home, and Phi Sigma Sigma has definitely been that place for me. Ever since I joined this amazing sisterhood, the amount of support and respect that I have received from my sisters is unconditional and unmatched. The friendships and bonds that I have made are like no other and I am so lucky to call these amazing women my best friends for life. Once a Phi Sigma Sigma, always a Phi Sigma Sigma.”

Interfraternity Council and Chapters

The Interfraternity Council and Chapters (IFC) works to advance conditions in regards to the success of its member chapters and to promote the progress of the fraternity experience. With this goal in mind, the IFC actively encourages inter-fraternalism and collaboration with other fraternity and sorority governing councils.

“Coming to UD, I decided to join a fraternity because I like being part of a group, especially one that has many benefits of being a part of,” says Anthony Pizzi, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. “Some of the benefits include social events, philanthropy events, possible internship and job opportunities and, the most obvious, being able to hang out and do things with all of the brothers. I chose to join SAE because I felt a close bond with all the guys when I met them. Being in SAE reminds me of being on a sports team because of everyone’s work ethic, strong mentality and we all got each other’s backs. That’s what being a brother in SAE is all about.”

Multicultural Greek Congress and Chapters (MGC)

The Multicultural Greek Congress and Chapters (MGC) houses all cultural and ethnic based fraternities and sororities at UD, including those organizations that are a part of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO), and the National PanHellenic Council (NPHC).

 “I joined Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. because of the impactful interactions I had with those who were undergraduates in the chapter at the time,” says President of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. Noelly Abreu. “I admired how they presented themselves with a distinct professionalism and authenticity. The group of women—known to me now as mis hermanes, my sisters— exemplified their genuine compassion for the tribulations of the world and their community and they made it apparent through their leadership within academics, volunteerism, social activism and philanthropy with causes combating HIV/AIDS and initiatives assisting low income and minority women reach their educational and career goals.”

“As a Dominican-American woman, I am often the minority in an academic setting; that being said, I have always yearned for a Latinx sisterhood to support me in endeavors that are important to me, such as academics,” says Abreu. “Nevertheless, I knew I wanted to become a part of la hermandad, the sisterhood, because what was to be gained from these womxn spans further than academia and well into personal, social and professional successes. Bonds and learning opportunities with mis hermanes are indispensable to me and will be carried with me far after graduation and for a lifetime.”
