Fraternity and Sorority Life
The Fraternity and Sorority community at Carnegie Mellon University has a long, rich tradition of fostering student involvement on campus. Fraternities and sororities have been a part of the Carnegie Mellon community for over 100 years. Since 1900 students have chosen to become members of fraternities and sororities at Carnegie Mellon because of the advantages the organizations provide. A tradition as rich as Greek Life offers students an opportunity to experience leadership development, to serve the local Pittsburgh community, to network with local alumni and make life long friendships. Greek letter societies were founded on the ideals of leadership, scholarship, community service and friendship. The fraternities and sororities at Carnegie Mellon University continue to uphold these ideals.
There are many ways to be Greek at Carnegie Mellon University. Currently, over 1124 students, 20% of the university undergraduate student body, are affiliated with the 22 fraternities and sororities on campus. Each year over 400 students make the decision to Go Greek. Founded upon the common principles and core values of scholarship, leadership, community service, character and the formation of lifelong friendships, fraternity men and sorority women of Carnegie Mellon are continuously challenged to uphold these principles in their daily lives.
