Fraternities and Sororities at Rochester
Currently, 24% of undergraduates at the University of Rochester are members of the fraternity and sorority community. There are 34 recognized organizations (19 fraternities and 15 sororities) that fall under 3 governing councils. All chapters are advised by the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs and are provided additional advising support by their Chapter Advocate and Chapter Alumni Advisor.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the governing council for 12 of our 19 national fraternities. This council was established in order to form a more cohesive interaction among the existing organizations within the UR chapters that are members of the North-American Interfraternity Conference. Its main purpose is to ensure harmony among the University community and promote the experience that brotherhood can offer.
