Welcome to Sorority & Fraternity Life at Cornell University. Our office provides support resources to the self-governed Cornell sorority fraternity community. Sororities and fraternities are values based social organizations, providing members with a tight-knit community of peers, and personal growth opportunities through leadership development and service projects. Many of the organizations also offer a small residential living experience.
The Cornell sorority and fraternity community dates to the first months of University operation during the autumn of 1868. Cornell's co-founder and first president, Andrew Dickson White, was a strong promoter of fraternal organizations as a means of teaching self-governance to students. Today, we strive to continue that ethos.
