Fraternities and Sororities

Looking for recent messages related to disaffiliations?

 

Fraternities & sororities have been part of the University’s history dating back to the time of Trinity College. Today, about 10% of the undergraduate population finds their home in the fraternity and sorority community. Through the development of partnerships, student advocacy, and educational programming, fraternities & sororities at Duke aim to be a place where students can develop leadership skills, gain cultural competency, enhance personal wellness, and think critically – all while making an impact on their greater communities.

If you are looking for information about joining a fraternity or sorority, please check out our Potential Members page and look for the council in which you are interested!
