WHAT IS FRATERNITY & SORORITY LIFE?
The fraternity and sorority community started at the University of Utah in the fall of 1909 when the first fraternity was established and chartered. The first sorority on campus was founded four years later in 1913. Today, the University of Utah has 19 fraternities and sororities with over 1,600 students involved. In our community, we have 12 fraternities and 7 sororities. We believe the fraternal experience is an excellent opportunity during one’s time at the U and can lead to a lifetime of friendship and support!
The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life consists of professional staff members’ whose role with the University is to support and advocate for the development and success of fraternity and sorority members. The Office works to provide oversight to the fraternal experience on campus while providing various educational programming and leadership development opportunities.
