Fraternity and Sorority Life

Leadership, Education and Service

Joining a fraternity or sorority is about more than just friendship! Members are encouraged to give back to the community through service initiatives, which may be organized by the office, the governing council and the individual chapter. The office also provides different events throughout the year that encourages members to focus on their own personal and professional development.


Every year, Greek Village opens to children from the university family and the greater Columbia community for trick-or-treating. Chapters put together carnival games such as face painting, cornhole, and more to entertain children.

The fall 2023 date will be announced in August.

The Greek New Member Experience aims to help the newly initiated members of our community build connections with other affiliated-students, learn more about our overall fraternal community, and participate in an immersive community-building experience!

Hosted only once a year, this event is open to members who joined their organization over the past year.

The fall 2023 date will be announced in August.

The FSL Leadership Retreat is an annual event where chapter presidents come together for community building, leadership development and operational training.

Throughout the FSL Leadership Retreat, we hope to provide small-group opportunities for chapter officers and members to engage with one another; share strategies; and receive training, support, and resources from campus offices and content experts.

Fraternities and sororities are committed to their members having a fun, memorable, and safe Greek experience. Chapter leaders responsible for any social or large-scale event planning are encouraged to attend an Event Planning Workshop to guide them through the steps of planning a safe and fun event for their members and guests. Topics covered are related risk management, harm reduction, contract review, managing guests, etc.
