Willamette University has a rich and proud history; for many years, Greek organizations have shared and contributed to this history. Social clubs and societies began developing as early as the 1850's. Local fraternities and sororities formed in the 1920's. Following World War II, President G. Herbert Smith invited national fraternities and sororities to affiliate with the local Greek organizations at Willamette. Currently, Willamette University hosts four nationally affiliated sororities (Alpha Phi, Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, and Pi Beta Phi), and five nationally affiliated fraternities (Beta Theta Pi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Sigma Chi). Willamette University is committed to fostering an excellent Greek community. Membership in a fraternity or sorority should be a rewarding experience, both educationally and personally, for students.
