Fraternity & Sorority Life

Washington & Jefferson College is home to nine Greek Letter organizations. The five fraternities that are recognized on campus are Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Delta Theta, and Phi Kappa Psi. The four NPC sororities recognized at W&J are Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Pi Beta Phi. All of our organizations reside on campus in the College-owned Chestnut Street housing.

The Greek Community at W&J is based on four standards that fraternities and sororities everywhere strive to achieve:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Leadership
  • Service to the Community
  • Friendship for Life

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life serves as a liaison among the fraternity and sorority chapters on campus, the College faculty and staff, parents, alumni, and the inter/national organizations. We provide educational programming, resources, leadership opportunities, and service events to attain universal growth for our Greek community. We support the Greek organizations by serving as advocates for the students, advising the chapter leaders, and also challenging them to live their life by their fraternal values and ideals.


As a parent, it's a good idea for you to learn about fraternities and sororities so you can help your son or daughter make the best decision about whether or not he or she should be part of the Greek life. The Greek 101 guide is a resource to answer many of the questions that parents have. View the guide here.
