Since 1873, Fraternity & Sorority life has grown to become a vital part of the history and tradition of KU. Today, KU Greek life represents more than 4,000 students and 47 different Fraternal organizations. Each of these organizations is a member of one of the four governing councils; the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (PHA). The FSL community is committed to four pillars: Leadership, service, scholarship, and fellowship (brotherhood/sisterhood).
