Fraternity & Sorority Life
As a student at MSU, Greek life just may give you a few more letters you’ll grow to love. With more than sixteen percent of the total student population being members of a Greek letter organization, going Greek is a great way to get involved, gain support and build lifelong friendships. Taking on leadership positions in your chapter provides you with opportunities to lead committees, manage budgets and build your network through interactions with both faculty and administrators, community members and leaders, and fellow Greeks both locally and nationwide. Greek organizations wouldn't have existed for more than 100 years if all they did was socialize. These fraternities and sororities value loyalty, friendship and honesty while emphasizing academic excellence and community service. When you go Greek, you also give back. MSU chapters provide over 4,000 hours in community service and raise $21,500 for local and national nonprofit organizations.

To experience what fraternity and sorority life is all about, you must participate in Recruitment or the Membership Intake process. These processes give you the opportunity to explore the chapters and find the fraternity or sorority that matches your ambitions, aspirations and values. The Recruitment and Intake processes are a great way to make new friends and meet new people from various backgrounds. To register for recruitment or find out more about intake, visit the How to Learn More page.

MSU has three fraternity and sorority governing councils: the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council (historically African American), and .the National Panhellenic Conference. View Going Greek to explore these councils.
