Fraternity and Sorority Life
Since 1867, Fraternity and Sorority life at Muhlenberg College has been an opportunity for students to engage in personal and professional development through the relationships derived from and the values consistent with the organizations of our Greek community. Muhlenberg currently recognizes three National Interfraternity Council (NIC) organizations, four National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) organizations, and one National Multicultural Greek Council (NMGC) organization.
Being a member of a fraternity or sorority provides a host of benefits including the opportunity to develop and refine leadership skills, engage in the community, particpate in philanthropic projects, and form lifelong friendships within an inter/national brotherhood or sisterhood. Members of the fraternity & sorority community can boast of involvement in practically every facet of campus life and support many campus initiatives. The chapters strive to provide for their members growth-oriented opportunities and experiences that are consistent with the mission of Muhlenberg College.
While each organization has a unique set of values, all share similar philosophies and guiding principles that surround: building character, improving leadership skills, serving the community,and developing life-long friendships.
The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at Muhlenberg College is dedicated to the intellectual and social development of students through membership in Greek-letter organizations.
Through a commitment to integrity, diversity, achievement, civility, and life-long learning, Fraternity & Sorority Life strives to produce men and women of competence and maturity who will contribute positively to the world in which they live.
