Washburn University is home to 5  fraternities and 6 sororities. The Fraternity and Sorority 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 Multicultural 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 6 sororities. The other three sororities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Gamma Phi Omega International Sorority, Inc. and Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc., have a deferred recruitment process. The sororities at Washburn are: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Omega International Sorority, Inc., Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. and Zeta Tau Alpha. The fraternities at Washburn are: Alpha Delta, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, and Sigma Phi Epsilon. Four of our fraternities host year-round recruitment activities. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. hosts deferred recruitment. Six of our fraternities and sororities provide on campus living. For more information on all of our chapters, visit our website or contact the Office of Student Involvement and Development at 670-1723 or student.involvement@washburn.edu.
