FMU Greek Life

Fraternities & Sororities at Francis Marion

Being a member of a Greek letter organization can lead to excellent opportunities in campus involvement, academic leadership, community service projects, athletics, and social life. Membership can provide a way to meet others and build lifelong friendships through the bonds of sisterhood and brotherhood!

The Greek system at FMU is made up of 14 organizations governed by the following 3 governing bodies:

Inter-fraternity Council (IFC)-A governing body that includes male Greek letter organizations consisting of Kappa Alpha Order and Tau Kappa Epsilon.

National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)- A governing body that includes historically African-American men's and women's Greek letter organizations consisting of Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta,  Sigma Gamma Rho and Iota Phi Theta.

Panhellenic Council (NPC)- A governing body that includes women’s Greek letter social organization consisting of Alpha Delta Pi, Kappa Delta, & Zeta Tau Alpha.
(These distinctions are purely historical.  FMU Greek organizations do not discriminate based on race, religion, creed, ethnicity or national origin)
