Being a member of a fraternity or sorority is a long-standing college tradition that is a unique part of higher education in the United States. Greek Life at Michigan State dates back to 1872 when Delta Tau Delta developed a local chapter of their fraternity on our campus. Since then, more than 70 social sororities and fraternities have recruited members from our student population. Our oldest active chapters on campus date back to 1922 when Alpha Gamma Rho, Lambda Chi Alpha, and Alpha Phi first colonized chapters in East Lansing.

This fall the 14 Panhellenic Chapters on Campus will be hosting recruitment. Joining the Greek Community at MSU is a great way to make new friends and join an organization of strong, smart sorority women.

Fall semester is an exciting time for all students at Michigan State University. It is a time to find new friends, new opportunities and new beginnings.
