Fraternity & Sorority Life

The University experience you're looking for

Integrity. Character. Diversity.

Our community is home to 25 organizations. These organizations are governed by student-led boards called councils. At the University of Nevada, Reno, we have three different councils that provide governance, accountability, educational opportunities, and structure for our fraternities and sororities: the Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) and National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). To learn more about each council and the organizations they govern, please reference our governance page.

Participation in a fraternity or sorority provides you an experience like no other on a college campus. Members of fraternities and sororities commit to lifelong participation in their organization and aspire to high ideals and values that guide you throughout your collegiate education and beyond. Immediately upon membership, you will be invited to experience all of the benefits of fraternity and sorority membership.

Our foundation rests on the extended support system that we create which fosters our members' academic, personal, and professional successes. As a community, we strive to improve not only our individual members but also the local community as a whole. We hope that our lifelong connection will provide a positive and lasting effect on all those who come to know us.
