Nearly 1,200 students at SJU are members of the Greek Life community, which is approximately 22%!

For our fraternity members, the All Fraternity GPA is 3.07 compared to the All Male GPA of 2.98. For our sorority members, the All Sorority GPA is 3.24 compared to the All Female GPA of 3.20. (Statistics are following the Spring 2016 semester).Philanthropy is an important part of Greek Life. Our fraternities and sororities host great events each year to raise money for many good causes. Whether it is Alpha Phi's Red Dress Gala or Alpha Omicron Pi's Strike Out Arthritis Kickball tournament, a lot of wonderful stuff happens at SJU!
If your son or daughter is interested in joining a fraternity or sorority, encourage them to make their decision based on values and the potential relationships they will have, rather than campus perception or potential social opportunities. Being Greek is a lifelong committment and should not be taken lightly.If you ever have questions about Greek Life at SJU, please feel free to call the Office of Student Leadership & Activities. Our Associate Director, Stacey Sottung (610-660-1077 or firstname.lastname@example.org), is more than happy to answer any questions that you may have!
No Matter the Letter, We are all Greek Together!
