There are a number of unrecognized Greek-letter groups currently operating near campus, which may appear to be part of the fraternity and sorority community but are not. These groups do not have the same professional oversight, institutional support and accountability, or long-standing safety practices in place as do the recognized chapters. Students should make affiliation and membership decisions carefully. Recognized and affiliated chapters are listed on the Fraternity & Sorority Life website according to their respective councils. View the list.
