Fraternity and Sorority Life
Currently, over 25 percent of Quinnipiac undergraduate students are members of the 20 fraternities/sororities on campus. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is committed to advancing fraternities and sororities through intellectual and interpersonal development within the Quinnipiac University community and beyond. The office provides programs that exemplify the values of the community, such as the Greek Leadership Series, Officer Training Academy, FOUNDATIONS, Social Event Manager Training and more. In addition, 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
Staff in the Office of Fraternity and 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 opportunities to gain proficiency in QU Essential Learning Outcomes.
