Mississippi State University is home to 32 fraternity and sorority chapters who are all nationally recognized as members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the National Panhellenic Conference (Panhellenic), or the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). Four fraternities and four sororities are members of the MSU NPHC, the governing body for our historically African-American Greek organizations. Eight NPC sororities and one multi-cultural sorority are members of the MSU Panhellenic Council. Sixteen NIC fraternities are members of the MSU Interfraternity Council (IFC).
The fraternities and sororities at MSU promote a balance of academics, leadership, community service/philanthropy, and social events. Members of Greek organizations are expected to maintain high grades, to volunteer in the local community, and to get involved and be leaders in other campus organizations. Our Greek members donate thousands of dollars annually to local and national charities. The all-Greek grade point average is consistently higher than the non-Greek grade point average. The majority of the members and leaders in most MSU student organizations are Greek. All of this and, yes, being Greek is fun, too! Membership in a Greek organization is a lifetime commitment and in return members can expect to make lasting memories and lifelong brothers and sisters.
New members are chosen annually through a variety of recruiting processes. For more information on how you can join a Greek organization at MSU, visit the council websites below or call 662-325-3917.
