Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL)
A DIVERSITY OF OPPORTUNITIES
There are 24 fraternities and sororities in four councils at UWG: College Panhellenic Council (CPC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), and National Panhellenic Council (NPHC).
Fraternities and sororities provide service and social opportunities, promote academic excellence, community and campus engagement, and brotherhood/sisterhood.
Fraternity and Sorority Life have community wide events like Greek Week, National Hazing Prevention Week, and much more. Formal recruitment for Panhellenic Sororities occurs every fall semester. IFC Fraternities observe 365 Recruitment. MGC and NPHC organizations conduct intake on an individual chapter basis.

Service, Scholarship, Resources, and Social
Fraternity and Sorority Life is much more than socializing and studying. Each year Fraternity and Sorority Life members raise tens of thousands of dollars and contribute thousands of hours nationally for local and national charities and nonprofit organizations. Through the support of a variety of charitable organizations, fraternities and sororities promote ideas that will enhance a member's university days.
Fraternities and sororities promote numerous services projects that provide their members with the opportunity to help others less fortunate than themselves. A strong community service program gives members an opportunity to accept responsibility and to know the satisfaction that comes from helping others.
Scholastic achievement is among the values that fraternities and sororities were founded upon. Each chapter promotes high standards and encourages academic excellence among their members. Our Fraternity and Sorority Life community strives to be a leading force for students to successfully achieve academically and complete their UWG journey with degree attainment.
Our organizations host several programs throughout the school year such as University wide study halls and partnering with other departments to ensure academic excellence.
It is easy to become lost in the crowd on a university campus. The Fraternity and Sorority Life community offers a network through which you can meet many new people. Because fraternities and sororities have members with a wide variety of background, interest, and goals, it is an ideal place to develop friendships with those whose interest may complement your own.
In addition to the social activities organized by each chapter, there are joint functions and system wide events. The academic year is full of opportunities for diverse social functions from athletic events to chapter social activities. Chapters also participate in multi-chapter exchanges, formal dances, and a variety of other outings. These events offer you the opportunity to meet new friends, as well as develop social skills, poise, and confidence.
College is a time for social interaction as well as academics. At UWG, there is always something fun happening within the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. Social and recreational activities give you the opportunity to meet a variety of people and to strengthen the bonds of friendship and sisterhood/brotherhood at the same time. Fraternity and sorority functions, date parties, stroll off competitions, and formal dances are examples of these activities.
Participation in traditional events such as Homecoming, Fraternity and Sorority Life Week, philanthropic events and intramurals, demonstrates unity and the spirit which makes Fraternity and Sorority Life at UWG so rewarding.
One of the greatest benefits of joining a fraternity or sorority is forming indescribable relationships with one another. This bond of brotherhood or sisterhood is a lifelong friendship that is cultivated through chapter activities and relationships. During the new member period, members will become close with other members of their new member class, delve into the history and the founding principles of their chapter, and learn what it means to be in Fraternity and Sorority Life at the University of West Georgia.
The social Fraternity and Sorority Life Governing Councils and the University of West Georgia do not tolerate hazing as part of the new member period, in accordance with university policy and state law.
Being a Fraternity and Sorority Life member is an unforgettable experience for students. Brothers and sisters share similar goals, values, and ideals, providing students a sense of belonging and connection to the university. Membership is for a lifetime and so are the friendships.
The University of West Georgia has a zero-tolerance for hazing and all fraternity and sorority headquarters forbid hazing. We are committed to membership that instills a sense of responsibility for all involved.
If you know something or see something, say something.
