Greek Life Participation

For many college applicants, fraternity and sorority life is an essential element of the higher education social scene, inseparable from the very concept of college itself. Of course, for every teen counting down the days until rush week, there are plenty who’d prefer to steer clear of Greek organizations altogether. By revealing the percentage of undergraduates who are members of Greek organizations at hundreds of top universities, the list that follows will help students from both camps ensure that their prospective schools match their social life preferences. For example, a student who wants to join a fraternity may be enticed by the fact that over 75% of Washington & Lee undergraduates are in frats versus just 3% at NYU.

*Data collected from 2019-20 Common Data Set (CDS) forms and institution websites, and indicates students enrolled for the 2019-20 academic year, the most recent year for which data is made available.
