Greek Life

For over one-third of Butler students, building lasting relationships, developing skills as leaders, and organizing all campus fundraisers through Greek Life is college at its best. With the potential to explore new experiences and activities, our chapters (five fraternities and seven sororities), plan formals and social events, service projects, and stay connected with alumni mentors while maintaining GPAs that are, on average, above 3.4. Additionally in any given semester, Butler’s Greek organizations contribute more than 17,000 hours in service to 175 Indianapolis area nonprofits.

Butler Greek life is more than just wearing Greek letters, it’s about making an impact.

 

Greek Organizations at Butler

Panhellenic Sororities

Sororities have long history at Butler, with the first chapter established in 1874. The primary focus of Panhel is to foster unity and encourage high standards among all sorority women and to work for the good of Butler University and its women students. 

Interfraternity Council Chapters

Representatives of our five fraternities comprise the membership of the Interfraternity Council (IFC). IFC coordinates men’s recruitment, provides service to the campus and community, and works with the sorority Panhellenic council to plan all-campus events.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

Butler and its students have a long history with chapters of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the nine historically Black fraternities and sororities. In joining an NPHC organization, you become more than a member of one chapter—you also join a self-supporting organization that will guide you throughout the remainder of your years at Butler, and for life
