Fraternity & Sorority Life At
Kennesaw State University
The Department of Fraternity & Sorority Life is committed to enriching students’ collegiate experience and fostering a community of values-based organizations through a commitment to accountability, courageous leadership, and stewardship. For over 40 years, fraternities and sororities at KSU have had a proud tradition of academic excellence, service to the community, and playing a significant role in the lives of hundreds of students and alumni.
Today, our community is comprised of 33 fraternities and sororities across four councils, including 13 culturally based organizations. There are 1,800 members who make every organization unique and vital to our vibrant community. Though the mission and values may vary, each chapter has a rich history of promoting scholarship, service, leadership, and community.
College Panhellenic Council
The KSU College Panhellenic Council (CPC) serves as the governing body over eight Panhellenic sororities: Alpha Delta Chi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Delta, Phi Mu, and Zeta Tau Alpha. The council is operated by Executive Board Officers and a Delegate who represents each sorority. The Executive Board Officers focus on promoting and supporting the interests, missions, and values of the social sororities. The community's sisterhood stands on four pillars: scholarship, leadership, community, and service. No matter which chapter you come to call home, your college journey will be enriched by these four tenants.
Members of the CPC hold prominent positions on campus, excel scholastically and serve the Kennesaw community through volunteering, advocacy, and philanthropy. The KSU Panhellenic Council is operated by executive officers and delegates representing all sororities, and is focused on promoting the interests of social sororities and the Greek community as a whole at KSU.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the governing body of the ten men's social fraternities at Kennesaw State University. For more than 150 years, fraternities have excelled in academics, leadership, athletics, and service. Here at KSU, our IFC community has perpetuated that legacy through emphasizing scholastic achievement, leadership development, service to the community, and brotherhood. We are committed to supporting undergraduate men in their personal development, producing successful leaders, and sustaining meaningful relationships during undergraduate years and as alumni of the University.
The IFC provides enriching programming for all community members whether they are a new member or a graduating senior. Along with supporting members of IFC, we often collaborate with other governing councils and student organizations on campus.
Multicultural Greek Council
In the 1970's, the emergence of a multicultural fraternity/sorority movement began; however, this was not the typical fraternity and sorority. The end of the twentieth century gave birth to a new movement – that of multiculturalism. Newly formed fraternities and sororities were looking to write a new page in the Greek-letter society history books. The message that they announced was the inclusiveness of all cultures, races, religions, and creeds.
The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) at Kennesaw State upholds the ideals of these organizations, which include, inclusion, diversity, and acceptance of things outside the norm. The council consists of organizations that are part of diverse backgrounds and heritages. The purpose of MGC is to promote and foster positive interfraternal relations, communication, and development of all multicultural organizations through mutual respect, leadership, honesty, professionalism and education.
