Fraternity & Sorority Life

Membership in a fraternity or sorority often provides students with vast opportunities to develop lifelong friendships, leadership skills, scholastic achievement, social interaction, and networking communities.

Being involved in a fraternity or sorority can help to build new skills that can be advantageous throughout life. These benefits can include leadership development, organizational skills, and the invaluable personal growth that comes from this involvement. Fraternity & Sorority Life provides opportunities to be involved in campus leadership positions, community service, planning of social functions, positions within the chapter, scholarship opportunities and irreplaceable friendships, all helping you to grow and succeed while at Fayetteville State University and throughout life. FSU students who are members of fraternities and sororities are scholars, campus leaders, athletes and positively contribute and enhance the FSU experience.

Fraternity and Sorority Life at FSU has been in existence since 1954. The University has 4 sororities and 5 fraternities with chapters under the National Pan-Hellenic Council and 2 chapters under the Independent Greek Council.
