What is Fraternity and Sorority Life? 

The Fraternity and Sorority community started at the University of Utah in the fall of 1909 when the first fraternity was chartered and established. The first sorority on campus was founded 4 years later in 1913. Today, the University of Utah has 19 fraternities and sororities with over 1,500 students involved. In our community, we have 11 fraternities and 8 sororities. All of our organizations believe that the fraternal experience is an excellent opportunity for men and women to explore during their time in college.



We, as fraternity men and sorority women, support The U, the collective you and the personal you. Our tradition gives us context for the past, opportunities for the present, and our vision for the future. We are a community within the larger University, and we are dedicated to serving as many students as possible.


University of Utah is a special place. Hundreds of organizations, clubs, and teams are at your fingertips when you arrive on campus. Within our campus is a special community of driven men and women, committed scholars, and dedicated servant leader. Fraternities and Sororities are powerful engines creating the visible events and energy on campus. Within our organizations, you will find a special place of belonging to a meaningful, impactful, caring group of people.


Utah Greek life is filled with opportunities. Leadership, philanthropy, service and networking opportunities await all people. The hospitality found in our community is welcoming, supportive and launches individuals into limitless opportunities. Our members have found countless opportunities to improve the world and themselves every day.


Our organizations exist to enhance and balance the daily rigors of life. We understand that college life is not limited to academics. Many Utah students balance class with work, families, and numerous other commitments. We seek to be a place where equilibrium, is achieved, and solace can be found in the personal relationships of those that deeply care for one another.
