For Parents

Welcome to the University of Delaware fraternity and sorority community! Currently there are over 40 fraternity and sorority organizations at the University of Delaware, with more than 3000 members. Fraternity and sorority members comprise approximately 20% of the undergraduate population.

Becoming involved with a fraternity or sorority provides a "home away from home" while at the University of Delaware. It is our belief that the challenges and rewards of collegiate life can be enhanced through a positive sorority or fraternity experience.

Fraternities and sororities were founded on four basic principles: scholarship, leadership, service, and friendship. The Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life, in accordance with the mission of the University Student Centers, assists fraternities and sororities as they strive to fulfill these principles.

The University of Delaware fraternity and sorority experience provides opportunities for students to have a scholastic support system; first-hand experience with leadership, interacting with faculty administrators; exposure to potential careers through educational programs and discussions with alumni; the chance to give back to the community through service projects; and close friendships that will last a lifetime.

Thank you for supporting the fraternity and sorority community at the University of Delaware. It is our hope that the positive influence of fraternity and sorority membership will last long after your son or daughter has graduated. Please feel free to explore our website to learn valuable information about each of our fraternities and sororities.
