Fraternity and Sorority Life
Currently, over 20 percent of Quinnipiac undergraduate students are members of the 18 fraternities/sororities on campus. The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life is committed to advancing fraternities and sororities through intellectual and interpersonal development within the Quinnipiac University community and beyond. The office is guided by a set of shared values, known as “Pillars,” which shape all community programming and initiatives from the new member experience through Commencement.
The Pillars are:
- Leadership through strength of character
- Growth through intellectual excellence
- Service through civic engagement
- Community through diversity and inclusion
The office provides programs that exemplify the values of the community, such as the Greek Leadership Series, Officer Training Academy, FOUNDATIONS: New Member Experience, Social Event Manager Training and more.
Staff in the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life offer advisement, programming and experiences that are intended to complement the numerous occasions for leadership and involvement provided by individual chapters and their respective governing councils. These experiences afford students opportunities to gain proficiency in the Quinnipiac Essential Learning Outcomes.
Women have the opportunity to join one of nine National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities or one National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) sorority, which are governed by the Quinnipiac Panhellenic Council.
Governed by the Interfraternity Council, men have the opportunity to join one of nine North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) fraternities.
Quinnipiac also has chapters of national honor societies for fraternity/sorority students, Order of Omega, Rho Lambda and Gamma Sigma Alpha. Order of Omega is an academic and leadership honor society. Juniors and seniors with a GPA above or equal to the all-fraternity/sorority GPA are able to seek membership. Rho Lambda honors those women within the sorority community who have exhibited the highest qualities of leadership and service to their Greek community and their sorority. Gamma Sigma Alpha is an academic honor society open to fraternity/sorority members who are juniors or above and have earned at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA.
