Fraternity & Sorority Life
Fraternity and Sorority Life has been a significant part of the undergraduate experience at Hofstra University since its founding in 1935. The University's continuing commitment to the fraternity and sorority community stems from the significant opportunities the organizations provide for intellectual, cultural and interpersonal growth.
Each organization was founded on similar principles of scholarship, leadership, service, and belonging. These values are at the core of everything the Hofstra fraternity and sorority community members strive for and integrate into their everyday lives. Hofstra believes that a community with these shared values can foster growth in character and enrich a student's intellectual, cultural and interpersonal growth through leadership roles, academic achievements, and alumni networking and support.

Students from diverse cultures, as well as varying religious and socioeconomic backgrounds are encouraged to participate in the Fraternity & Sorority system. Activities and programs designed to promote the understanding and acceptance of diverse populations are a critical part of the fraternity and sorority experience.
