Fraternities and Sororities

Please Note the New Academic Eligibility Requirements:
Academic eligibility for continuing students is a 2.50 cumulative GPA, completion of 12 credits and full-time status. Transfer students are eligibility to join during their first semester.

Going off to college means a fresh start - moving to a new town, finding a new group of friends and encountering exciting, new opportunities. At Rutgers, we encourage you to consider joining a fraternity or sorority. Rutgers' first fraternity opened its doors to students in 1845 and since that time the fraternity and sorority community has offered a unique opportunity to help you develop into the person you want to be.

On the New Brunswick campus you'll find over 80 fraternities and sororities ranging from the "traditional" to historically African-American, Latino/a, Multicultural and Asian-interest. You'll find opportunities to live in a chapter house (as early as your second semester) and you'll also find opportunities for friendship and academic support.

As a member, you will create lifelong friendships, strengthen academic skills in a small group, grow through leadership and service in a community with shared values, make valuable connections to the larger fraternity and sorority community and the University, and lastly, have fun!
