Welcome to Fraternity & Sorority Life at Northern Illinois University!
Mission: The mission of Fraternity & Sorority Life staff is to advocate for fraternites and sororities within the Northern Illinois University community, and promote an understanding of organization and individual member responsibilities in accordance with University rules and regulations. Fraternity & Sorority Life serves as a catalyst for encouraging fraternities and sororities to provide their members with experiences that lead to enhanced personal and professional growth, development and education.
NIU is home to 47 social fraternities and sororities, with more than 1,600 members in our Greek community.
