Fraternity and Sorority Life
Greek life provides valuable opportunities for personal, intellectual and social development.
Coming Together. Giving Back.
Commitment to personal and organizational excellence is the cornerstone of the Queens Greek experience. Joining a Greek organization gives you opportunities for personal, intellectual and social development. Queens Greeks have developed their own standards of excellence to demonstrate their commitment to these areas.
And, of course, our Greek system creates many opportunities to meet new friends and deepen existing friendships. Greeks come together for Formal Recruitment, Rush, mixers, formals, Greek Week and retreats every year. Each organization supports philanthropy through fundraising, community service and awareness events.
Joining a Fraternity or Sorority Can Help You:
- Emphasize scholarship
- Provide leadership opportunities
- Offer lifetime participation
- Build lasting friendships
- Encourage community service
- Allow for athletic and social opportunities
- Open doors for networking and professional opportunities
The Inter-Greek Council (IGC) is composed of delegates of each fraternity and sorority on campus as well as the presidents from Panhellenic Council and Order of Omega. The function of IGC is to promote unity and cooperation through discussion and planning, while encouraging representation of each chapter at campus events and activities.The Inter-Greek Council plans Greek Week, all greek socials and other fraternity and sorority-wide events.
Order of Omega is a national honor society for Greek Life. This group of students represents those with a GPA higher than the all-Greek average and those that show commitment to community service. Order of Omega is responsible for coordinating Greek-wide functions including New Member Summit and Greek Life Community Service projects.
The Panhellenic Council is the governing body for the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities on campus. The NPC sororities include Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Kappa Delta and Phi Mu. The Queens Panhellenic Council is made up of three women from each chapter. One holds an executive role on Panhellenic Council as either the president, vice president/director of formal recruitment, secretary or treasurer. Additionally each chapter has a delegate and a junior delegate. This council is responsible for coordinating formal recruitment, which is the process of a mutual selection between a new student and an NPC sorority. They are also responsible for planning NPC social events, philanthropy events and addressing concerns among the NPC community.
