Fraternity and Sorority Life

Oakland University has a vibrant community on campus that includes 17 fraternities and sororities. Every organization has its own unique rituals, secrets, ideals and values. Membership in a Greek-lettered organization can begin at any time during a student’s undergraduate career, but membership lasts a lifetime.

Fraternities and sororities typically have their own philanthropy, sisterhood or brotherhood activities and conduct mixers with other organizations. Fraternity and sorority life can be an excellent resource to gain leadership experience and provides opportunities to get involved with volunteer organizations, obtain academic support, and connect with others in a close-knit community.

A current list of fraternity and sorority officer information is available in GrizzOrgs. For more information, check out this video or contact
