Fitchburg State University is home to three national fraternities and three national sororities on campus. The fraternities are governed by the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and the sororities are governed by the Panhellenic Council. All six organizations are governed by Greek Council. Students involved in fraternities and sororities are active in many other clubs and organizations on campus, displaying tremendous leadership roles.
Joining a fraternity/sorority is about learning about yourself, being a leader, giving back to the community, and making lifelong friendships.
