About Our Community

The sorority and fraternity community at Ohio University was founded over 175 years ago by the chartering of one national fraternity. Years later, the first sorority received its charter, recognizing the importance, values and principles of fraternal organizations for both men and women. Later, the community expanded with the chartering of the first traditionally African-American fraternity.

In future years, the addition of multicultural fraternities and sororities made Ohio University’s sorority and fraternity community the unique and culturally diverse student experience it is today. Our community has grown to close to 3,000 students within 4 councils. The Women’s Panhellenic Association (WPA), the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Unified Greek Council (UGC) pride themselves on individuality, while recognizing common values and principles.
