Greek Life at WIU
Welcome to Greek Life at Western Illinois University! Your years in college will include several different and exciting experiences, but none of those opportunities have the potential to be as complete as your experience as a member of a fraternity or sorority. The core purpose of each fraternity and sorority is to create better men and women through leadership, service, scholarship, and social opportunities. Although each chapter is unique, every organization promotes similar values and ideals.
Western Illinois University is proud of its strong Greek tradition. We offer 20 national fraternities and 9 national sororities for students to choose from. Members of our organizations are heavily involved in campus and community organizations as well as in all-Greek committees like Greek Week, Rho Lambda, and Order of Omega.
As you look through our website, you will find various information, chapter facts, and pictures of the Greek community in action. If you would like additional information or want to become involved in a fraternity or sorority, please contact the Office of Student Activities.

Thoughts on Being Greek
What is the best part about being Greek?
To me the best part of being Greek, are my sisters. Many people say you pay for your friends when you are in a sorority, and if that's how they see it -- my friends are so worth it because when you join a sorority you form friendships that are so strong you no longer call that person a friend, but rather a sister.
