GREEK ORGANIZATIONS AT CENTRE
Fraternity and sorority members at Centre can be found leading campus organizations, participating in community service, excelling in the classroom, and providing meaningful social opportunities for the campus community.
Centre’s Greek community consists of 11 international organizations (six fraternities and five sororities) dedicated to the ideals of brotherhood, sisterhood, leadership, scholastic achievement, community service, and social interaction. These organizations are led by the Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council under the guidance of the Office of Greek Life.

WHAT TO EXPECT
SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP PROJECTS
Centre Greeks recorded more than 12,000 service hours last year. They raised more than $60,000 for charitable organizations through fun chapter events such as 5K Runs, letter-writing campaigns, and silent auctions, to name just a few. Fundraisers benefit the United Way, Ronald McDonald House, CASA, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Other projects include mentoring at-risk local school children, and sponsoring city-wide canned-food drives.
Centre Greeks host speakers on leadership, time-management, and self-awareness; network with Centre alumni; and involve faculty and staff in chapter presentations.
Centre Greeks are involved in cookouts, campus-wide study breaks, faculty appreciation events, Homecoming dinners, intramural sports, and other on-campus functions.
GREEK LIFE BENEFITS
Each group has many officer positions (president, vice president, treasurer, service, recruitment chair, alumni relations, etc.) or one can join the Interfraternity and Panhellenic councils. Even after graduation, the leadership opportunities continue. For the last several years, Centre students have been chosen from hundreds of applicants across the nation to be chapter consultants for their inter/national Greek organizations. These Centre Greek alums travel to chapters across the nation, assisting them in activities associated with their Greek membership.
In addition to the Greek chapters at Centre, two additional Greek honorary societies, Order of Omega, and Gamma Sigma Alpha recognizes outstanding scholarship, leadership, and character.
CONTACTS FOR THE FUTURE
All of our Greek organizations are inter/national, which means that everywhere you go, you’ll meet members of your fraternity or sorority from chapters at other colleges. This can make for immediate connections, which often result in job opportunities and internships.
