Joining a Fraternity/Sorority

Started in 1866, fraternities and sororities at Illinois Wesleyan University are mission-driven and values-based organizations. This is a community that fosters academic excellence, philanthropic dedication, leadership skills, ethical behavior, and lifelong relationships. For this reason, fraternity and sorority members at IWU have higher GPAs, take leadership in the university community, and make a significant impact in the IWU and Bloomington communities.

Being a fraternity or sorority member means embracing IWU Fraternity and Sorority Life's pillars: fellowship, leadership, scholarship, service and philanthropy. When you join a fraternity or sorority, you will have an opportunity to make an impact on this campus and let your curiosity break through.

There are eight (8) fraternities and sororities governed by one of two governing councils: the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and the Panhellenic Council (CPH).
