Greek Life

Greek Life at WIU

Welcome to Greek Life at Western Illinois University! Your years in college will include several different and exciting experiences, but none of those opportunities have the potential to be as complete as your experience as a member of a fraternity or sorority. The core purpose of each fraternity and sorority is to create better men and women through leadership, service, scholarship, and social opportunities. Although each chapter is unique, every organization promotes similar values and ideals.

Western Illinois University is proud of its strong Greek tradition. We offer 20 national fraternities and 9 national sororities for students to choose from. Members of our organizations are heavily involved in campus and community organizations as well as in all-Greek committees like Greek Week, Rho Lambda, and Order of Omega.

As you look through our website, you will find various information, chapter facts, and pictures of the Greek community in action. If you would like additional information or want to become involved in a fraternity or sorority, please contact the Office of Student Activities.

Thoughts on Being Greek

How has being Greek positively affected/changed you?

Being Greek has played a very large role on me. I spent my freshman year here at WIU non-Greek, and I never did anything, wasn't involved, had a couple close friends I could count on. After joining Delta Zeta last year as a sophomore, I have allowed my leadership qualities to show and I have gotten extremely involved. I now hold a position in my house along with PHC, and I am also the president of Colleges Against Cancer. Being a sorority has shown me the opportunities that are out there and all you have to do is go for it.
