Greek Life

» Greek Life

Joining a fraternity or sorority at Chapman provides opportunities for community building, community service, leadership development and academic achievement.

About a third of undergraduate students participate in Greek Life. We have eight national sororities and ten inter/national fraternities. Each chapter has a unique focus but all help foster friendships, connections and involvement opportunities.

 

Chapman Fraternities

Joining a fraternity can help you strengthen your values and build strong relationships that last well beyond college. With 10 different fraternities on campus, you’re sure to find one that’s a good match for you.

Chapman Sororities

Joining a sorority is a great way to form lasting bonds and get the most out of your college experience. We have eight sororities on campus, so you will be able to find one that aligns with your interests and values.

Professional Fraternities

Professional fraternities are exactly what they sound like — almost. Even though they’re called fraternities, they’re open to men and women.

Each professional fraternity is connected to a particular business or field. If you’ve already got your sights set on your career, a professional fraternity can help you get there by:

  • Helping you make connections and learn how to network
  • Showing you the ropes of your field/industry
  • Setting up interviews for you

Chapman has four professional fraternities, plus one national honor society:

Greek Life Opportunities

Rush/Recruitment

Rush (for fraternities) and recruitment (for sororities) is where you’ll learn all about the different fraternities/sororities on campus and find one that fits your values and goals.

Chapman has a strict no-hazing policy for fraternities and sororities.

Community Service

Philanthropy is an essential part of Greek Life at Chapman and includes events, fundraising. You can learn more on our Greek Life Philanthropy page, including a list of every chapter’s efforts.

Events

Chapman doesn’t have Greek housing, so many events are held on campus. This helps integrate Greek Life into the entire campus community and provide more opportunities to get involved even if you aren’t a member.

Greek Week

Greek Week is held in the fall and is a week of events — like tug of war, Greek Family Feud, and field events —  for the entire Chapman Community.

Skit

Held every spring, Skit is a two-night event where the Greek community comes together to put on — you guessed it — skits!

Each individual skit is unique, but they all go something like this:
