Fraternities & Sororities

National PanHellenic Council Fraternities and Sororities

Chapters within this council are historically Black Greek letter organizations from the Divine 9. A focus on African American heritage and history plays a large part in the values and activities of these organizations, but membership is open to individuals of all backgrounds.

Why should you join a fraternity or sorority?

There’s nothing quite like being a member of a fraternity or sorority.

Once you’re a member, you’re part of a brotherhood or sisterhood that will support you throughout your life.

While you’re here at IUPUI, you’ll benefit from the camaraderie you’ll find, whether you’re at a social event or just hanging out with your new friends. You’ll have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of activities, including:

  • Community service—Philanthropy is an important part of fraternity and sorority life, and you’ll have plenty of chances to engage with our community and make Indy a better place
  • Academic help—School is serious business, and you'll be able to take advantage of resources like study sessions, study tables, and scholarship awards
  • Athletic events—Fraternities and sororities participate in several intramural leagues and are among the first to show up and cheer loudly for IUPUI athletic teams
  • Leadership development—Whether you serve on a committee or run for office, there are plenty of opportunities to grow your leadership skills
