Be part of a rich tradition through membership in a fraternity and sorority

College fraternities and sororities are social and leadership organizations that encourage members to establish relationships with chapter members, other Greek members as well as other students during their college experience. Joining a fraternity or sorority is a great way of opening doors to numerous opportunities, activities and networking opportunities.

Being Greek means more than just wearing Greek letters and going to social events. Being in a fraternity or sorority is about making friendships that will last far beyond your college years. It enhances your personal development by committing to ideals of scholarship, leadership and service.

Dickinson College’s Greek community consists of five sororities and five fraternities. Every fraternity and sorority on campus has its own rich history and tradition.


Councils

Panhellenic Association

The Dickinson Panhellenic Association supports women's Greek-letter organizations by promoting values, education, leadership, friendship, cooperation and citizenship, in cooperation with the National Panhellenic Conference. The council hosts primary recruitment in January, participates in Love Your Body Week and Wellness Week, and hosts social and service events for all sorority women.
