Fraternity and Sorority Life: An Integral Stevens Experience
Stevens alumni often credit being part of a fraternity or sorority as a defining influence in their undergraduate experience.
The impact of Greek organizations on Stevens' campus is undeniable.
More than one-third of the Stevens undergraduate population are involved in Greek life. The university is home to 13 active fraternities and seven active sororities.
While each organization has its own mission and traditions, all are connected by common goals of service and leadership. All organizations fundraise for chosen philanthropic causes, and members volunteer time at nonprofit organizations in the Hoboken community.
Greek life has always had a profound influence on campus, going back almost as far as the university itself, when Theta Xi was granted its charter in 1874. The establishment of many other fraternities quickly followed in subsequent years.
Sororities made their first appearance on campus shortly after undergraduate women were admitted to Stevens in 1971. Stevens women formed Zeta Omega, which partnered with national organization Phi Sigma Sigma to become the first Stevens sorority in 1982.
The Stevens Greek community continues to expand. The addition of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and Sigma Psi Zeta sorority, both established in 2019, reflect the growing diversity of the student population.
