Fraternity and Sorority Life
The mission of Fraternity and Sorority Life at the University of Kentucky is to empower the students throughout their membership experience to create a welcoming and inclusive community that fosters a sense of belonging. We accomplish this through our membership development programming, chapter coaching, advising and collaboration with campus partners as well as stakeholders.
Welcome to Fraternity and Sorority Life!
Fraternities and sororities have been part of a long-standing tradition at the University of Kentucky since the first fraternity was established in 1893. When you become a member of one of our organizations, you are following in the footsteps of countless accomplished members who came before you. The fraternity and sorority community is founded on the values of scholarship, leadership, friendship and service; our members strive to live out these values each day.
Our students are more than just members in our organizations, they are leaders on campus both in their own fraternities and sororities and spread over the other 500+ student organizations. Fraternity and sorority members often have higher GPAs, more community service hours and dollars raised, and are more 3x more likely to return to campus year after year to continue their education.
UK Fraternity and Sorority Life includes professional fraternity and sorority advisors dedicated to working with fraternal organizations and providing support to those interested in joining. Fraternity and Sorority Life is a part of the Dean of Students Office and works collaboratively with other units in the Office for Student Success to create a positive social culture that supports and promotes academic success and wellbeing for all members of the fraternity and sorority life community.
