About Us


Our History
In the spring of 1939, Fraternity/Sorority Life began at what was then Madison College. Today, around 3,700 students have made a life-long commitment to a fraternity or sorority at James Madison University.

Although we are a relatively young institution, our campus has a strong Greek system rich in tradition and strong fraternities and sororities. Today, we are proud to have a thriving fraternity/sorority system on campus with 28 chapters on campus ranging from approximately 30 to 240 members. We are proud of our organizations and strive to ensure that every student’s fraternity or sorority experience will be one of the most memorable times of their college years.

Guided by our dedicated staff and a commitment to four core values, the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life offers students a unique opportunity to balance college life with a focus on academic achievement, citizenship and social responsibility, member development, and philanthropy and service. Fraternity & Sorority Life allows students to make lasting friendships with individuals that share similar goals, ideals, and common purposes.

Our Vision
To be recognized as a premier community for developing better citizens.

Our Mission Statement
In partnership with Inter/national fraternity and sorority organizations, we are committed to providing programs, services, and resources that support and empower students, advisors, and alumni to foster the advancement of a nationally recognized community founded upon the values articulated by JMU and their respective fraternity and sorority organizations.
