Fraternity & Sorority Life

Chapters, Organizations & Councils

A positive fraternal experience provides students with a complement to their academics at Duke and attends to their development as adults, by providing them with study groups, values-based programming, service opportunities, leadership positions, social outlets, lifelong friendships and a career network.  Most fraternal organizations seek to uphold the tenets of scholarship, leadership, service, and brotherhood or sisterhood.  These values-based organizations challenge their members to instill these principles into their own lives through their activities and interaction with their collegiate brothers or sisters, and alumni.
