In the spring of 1939, Fraternity/Sorority Life began at what was then Madison College. Today, more than 2,500 students are members of the fraternity/sorority community at James Madison University.
Although we are a relatively young institution our campus has a strong Greek system rich with tradition and strong fraternities and sororities. Today, we are proud to have a thriving fraternity/sorority system on campus with more than 29 chapters on campus ranging from approximately 30 to 180 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 experience.
Guided by our dedicated staff and the Four Pillars of Excellence, Fraternity & Sorority Life offers students a unique opportunity to have a balanced college life with a focus on academic excellence, brotherhood/sisterhood, community service, and responsible social interaction. Fraternity/Sorority Life allows students to make lasting friendships with individuals that share similar goals, ideals, and common purposes.
