Greek Life is one of the most enriching, long-lasting and fun-filled opportunities your son or daughter can take advantage of during their years at the University of Memphis. Greek Life at the University of Memphis is much more than a social community; it offers students a chance to succeed as a student, grow as a leader, and give back to the community through community service and philanthropic fundraising.

Fraternities and sororities are an integral part of student life at Memphis, and they contribute much to the University. Greek members are visible throughout the campus, holding membership and leadership positions in campus organizations that range from departmental clubs to the highest honor societies. Perhaps the greatest benefits of joining the Greek community are the diverse and lasting social networks, academic support, and positive group experiences.

We are proud to host 27 national sororities and fraternities from the National Pan-Hellenic Council, the North-American Interfraternity Conference, and the National Panhellenic Conference. Since 1947, Greek Life has been enriching the lives of thousands of University of Memphis students and providing a home-away-from-home during their college years. A professional staff assists our Greek chapters and students in all areas of operation, chapter programming, academic and leadership development, community outreach, risk management and housing.





What is one thing you have gained from Greek life that you didn not expect to learn?

"Something I didn’t expect to learn from Greek life is the amount of leadership experience I could gain. I always heard the “animal house” stereotypes growing up, but from day one I became involved in an organization that asked more of me as a man and a student. It presented opportunities for me to grow and learn how to lead through the many offices I could hold and leadership workshops and conferences I have been able to attend."
