Purdue University's West Lafayette campus has been host to fraternities, sororities, and cooperatives. Today, Purdue boasts one of the nation's largest Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative communities, with over 6,000 students holding membership in over 90 organizations.  About 20% of Purdue's undergraduates are members of a fraternity, sorority, or cooperative. The Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative community (FSCL) focuses on scholarship, service, philanthropic giving, leadership development, and brotherhood/sisterhood/siblinghood. Several of Purdue's most distinguished graduates are members of fraternities, sororities, and cooperatives.

Purdue University is home to 11 cooperative houses and more than 80 fraternities and sororities. The Interfraternity Council governs 41 men's fraternities at Purdue. The Multicultural Greek Council governs 10 multicultural fraternities and sororities.  The National Pan-Hellenic Council governs 9 historically African-American fraternities and sororities at Purdue.  The Panhellenic Association governs 21 women's fraternities and sororities. The 11 cooperative houses are governed by the Purdue Cooperative Council. For more information on the individual organizations check out their pages under the Prospective Members tab.

Path Moving Forward

A message from our governing council Presidents: "Throughout our time here at Purdue, we learn how we must continuously improve in order to achieve our potential. This same fact is true for our organizations. It’s essential we carry on the tradition of our self-governance. Please click here to view our Path Moving Forward document; it takes a look at where we are today, and the steps we must take as we move into the future. We want to emphasize that nothing contained in this document is a policy change, but rather an operational shift. We know that in order to make lasting, impactful change, it requires an investment from all of our members."
