Commitment to personal and organizational excellence is the cornerstone of the Queens Greek experience. Greek membership provides a valuable opportunity for personal, intellectual and social development. Queens Greeks have developed their own standards of excellence to demonstrate their commitment to these areas.
Every year students look forward to Formal Recruitment, Rush, mixers, formals, Greek Week, and retreats. Each organization supports philanthropy through fundraising, community service, and awareness events.
The Greeks at Queens also work together! There are various leadership opportunities for Greeks to get involved in that also bring the community together. Inter Greek Council is the board of chapter and council presidents focusing on building Greek unity and cooperation. Panhellenic Council is the governing body for the NPC sororities (Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Kappa Delta, and Phi Mu). Interfraternity Council is the governing body for the male fraternities (Pi Kappa Phi and Phi Kappa Sigma). Finally, Order of Omega is a national honor society for Greek Life. This organization takes only the best and brightest of the Greek community. The members of Order of Omega at Queens are responsible for planning Greek-wide socials and service projects.
