Greek Life at Adrian College is an experience of holding yourself to higher standards, while making friendships that will last a lifetime.
Adrian College has five national fraternities, Phi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Theta Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Alpha Tau Omega; three national sororities, Alpha Phi, Chi Omega, and Alpha Sigma Alpha; and one local sorority, Delta Nu Kappa. Twenty percent of the student body is Greek, with almost 300 members. Greeks are involved with numerous student organizations and leadership positions, and are committed to keeping their chapter’s Grade Point Averages above Interfraternity Council and Pan-Hellenic Council requirements. Live Better. Live Greek.
Greek organizations emphasize scholarship, service and philanthropy, leadership and campus involvement. Students may move into fraternity or sorority housing at the start of the following semester provided pledging began before the seventh week of the previous semester and their grade point average meets chapter and Interfraternity Council or Panhellenic Council requirements.
