Fraternities and sororities have been a part of the Columbia University community for over 175 years. Our office supports the self-governed fraternity and sorority community on campus, working with students to fully embody the values of Residential Life at Columbia: engagement, development, responsibility, inclusivity, and learning.
Joining a fraternity or sorority can be one of the most enriching experiences a student can have. Membership into one of our values-based chapters provides students with a close community of peers. Through leadership development, learning, philanthropy, and civic engagement, students grow and thrive.
