Greek Organizations

Washburn University is home to 5 fraternities and 4 sororities. The Greek community of Washburn University provides a comprehensive educational and social learning experience for all of its members through the promotion of academics, leadership and personal development, brotherhood and sisterhood, and service to the University and the Topeka community.

National statistics show that students who participate in fraternity or sorority life increase their chances of graduating; build long lasting relationships with friends and with their university; serve in more leadership roles on campus; and on the average obtain higher grade point averages.

Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, and Greek Council are the governing bodies for the chapters on campus and are comprised of members from each organization. Panhellenic Council sponsors fall formal recruitment activities where female students may participate in formal membership recruitment during September for 3 of the 4 sororities. The fourth sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, has a deferred recruitment process. In addition, all students can participate in open membership recruitment during the school year. The sororities at Washburn are: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, and Zeta Tau Alpha. The fraternities at Washburn are: Alpha Delta, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and Sigma Phi Epsilon. Six of our fraternities and sororities provide on campus living.
