The Greek community at Georgia State has a long, rich tradition of fostering student involvement and development. Since 1954, many Georgia State students have chosen to become members of fraternities and sororities to take advantages of the unique opportunities and experiences these organizations provide. Greek-letter organizations were founded on the ideals of scholarship, community service, leadership, and life-long friendship.
Georgia State University’s fraternities and sororities continue to uphold these ideals and strive to reach excellence within each of them. Georgia State University continues to grow, as our freshmen class size increases each year. Greek Life provides students with an opportunity to make a big campus feel a little smaller by connecting with other members in the Greek community. When joining a fraternity or sorority, individuals join a community with others who share similar values and interests. Each chapter serves as a place creating strong relationships and friendships that last a lifetime.
The Greek community at Georgia State is committed to participating in community service and philanthropic efforts. Chapters strive each semester to give their time and support to many different organizations within Atlanta and beyond. An example of a Greek wide service event is the Trick-or-Treat Fest hosted in Greek Housing each year.
Greek members can be found in all parts of campus life: Student Government Association, intramural sports, resident assistants, honor societies, Inceptors, residence hall councils, as student staff in many offices and departments, varsity sports, the band, and throughout the 400+ students organizations found on campus.
A fraternity or sorority can personalize your college experience by offering an academic support system and valuable hands-on leadership opportunities. In addition, participating in the Greek community offers students interaction with faculty and administrators, networking through educational programs, and close friendships with classmates that foster brother and sisterhood.
Georgia State is home to 30 social Greek fraternities and sororities. All chapters are alike in their values and missions, but uniquely different in their chapters’ members, who create that special bond each group has. Please visit their local and national websites to obtain further information regarding each organization.
