Fraternity & Sorority Life at the Capstone

The Fraternity & Sorority community at UA is one of the largest and most vibrant in the United States. With over 9,500 students, comprising over 33 percent of the undergraduate student body, UA is home to 59 social Greek-letter organizations. Since fall 2011, the University has held the coveted honor of being the largest Fraternity & Sorority community in the nation with regard to overall fraternity and sorority membership.

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, a department within the Office of the Dean of Students, is home to four professional staff members (Director, Assistant Director, Coordinator, and Program Assistant) and four graduate assistants dedicated to the growth and success of the Greek community and to the individual development of fraternity and sorority members. Specifically, the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life advises and provides guidance to the fraternities and sororities associated with the four Greek Governing Councils: Alabama Panhellenic Association (APA), Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and the United Greek Council (UGC).

To learn more about the various fraternity and sorority life opportunities available to students, please checkout the new All-Greek publication Fraternities and Sororities at The University of Alabama. Prospective students and their parents/guardians are also encouraged to view the Fraternity Life and Sorority Life Power Points presented at Bama Bound Orientation.
