Dear Parents,

These initial months at Duke are a very exciting and likely stressful time as son/daughter are adjusting to college life.  Although it may have taken a few months, we hope that they have comfortably settled into life here at Duke and are truly experiencing the many opportunities that are afforded to them on campus.

The spring semester brings many new opportunities for involvement throughout campus, one being the possibility of joining one of our Greek-letter-organizations. With the support of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, there are 41 chapters represented across 4 councils. Greek organizations are composed of the most comprehensive and connected network of men and women on Duke’s campus. Greek students are proud to comprise approximately one third of all undergraduates. Joining this network has many benefits including group housing, peer and alumni advisement, and the ability to sponsor social and philanthropic programming.
