Welcome to fraternity & sorority life at Colorado State University! Please take a few minutes to look through our website to learn more about each of our organizations and councils. Many students make the decision to join fraternities and sororities at CSU and nationwide each year and we hope you, as a parent or family member, will learn about the incredible opportunities available to your student through membership in a fraternity or sorority.
The fraternity and sorority community at Colorado State University has been in existence since 1915, with a continuing tradition of fostering academic excellence, leadership skills, philanthropic efforts, and active contribution to both the campus and Fort Collins communities. Our fraternity and sorority community consists of over 60 fraternities and sororities with a total membership of 3,500 undergraduate students. You can find our general community make-up here. While each organization maintains its own activities, traditions, and (inter)national affiliations, each is founded on similar principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and lifelong friendship. Please visit our Chapter Reports page to learn more.
Students within the community have developed extensive community policies concerning human rights, hazing, and substance abuse and take seriously their responsibility to be leaders on the Colorado State University campus. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life expects each student and organization to CLIMB to higher elevation through their membership experiences, meaning we hope fraternity and sorority members work to achieve personal excellence. Our staff creates programs and initiatives to support this expectation.
If your student is just joining the community, we encourage exploration of all of our councils and organizations. We hope students will be true to themselves when seeking membership within an organization with other students who share common interests and goals that can lead to life-long friendships and an enriched student experience. If you want insight on supporting your student please view this resource.
We look forward to working with both you and your student(s) in the future. Please feel free to contact the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at any time. If you are looking for a specific contact, our staff page will help you get in touch with the correct person.
