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.





How has Greek life encouraged you academically?

"I have become more competitive as a Greek. I want to get higher grades than my brothers. Being in a fraternity also shines a light on you and you want to give a positive example for other people who look up to you."

Greg Vann, Senior
National Pan-Hellenic Council
Organizational Leadership Major
