Willamette University has a continuous recruitment process. Students wishing to join a chapter may do so at any time during their Willamette undergraduate career. Fraternity and sorority chapters host recruitment events throughout the year that are open to all students.
Willamette University has three nationally recognized fraternities: Kappa Sigma and Sigma Chi. Currently, none of our fraternities or sororities have on-campus housing. However, they all have meeting and gathering places on campus to host their regular events. Willamette University fraternities are governed by the Interfraternity Council. Each fraternity has regular philanthropic and social events.
Willamette University has two nationally recognized sororities, Alpha Chi Omega and Alpha Phi. These sororities are governed by a national organization called the National Panhellenic Conference, which ensures equal opportunities, resources and guidelines for these organizations. Each sorority has a national and local philanthropy to whom they regularly commit funding and service hours.
