Welcome to fraternity and sorority life at Winthrop University. The fraternities and sororities are an established tradition, dating back more than 30 years on Winthrop’s campus. There are currently 15 national Greek-letter men’s and women’s organizations.
The self-governing, self-supporting bodies of the fraternities and sororities are the College Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council. These organizations coordinate events, provide educational programs, establish community wide regulations and implement policies for their member organizations.
We encourage you to explore our website in order to gain more information about our councils, chapters, and opportunities to become a member of our community.
