Welcome to Sorority & Fraternity Life at Cornell University. We are currently working to update our website, thank you for your patience during this time.

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.

Our office provides support and resources to the self-governed Cornell sorority and fraternity community.  Sororities and fraternities are values-based social organizations, providing members with a community of peers, and personal growth opportunities through leadership development and service projects.  Many of the organizations also offer a small residential living experience.
