Greek Life Grows by Record Levels


If you have fond memories of your Greek brothers and sisters from your time at Southeast, there’s more in that network this year than ever before. Southeast is celebrating growth in its Greek community with Greek students comprising just over 12 percent of the student body.

Southeast currently hosts 21 active chapters, 12 fraternities and nine sororities, across three councils, which are referred to as the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). The NPHC governs and represents historically African-American fraternities and sororities recognized at Southeast. In 2013, there were three NPHC fraternities and sororities at Southeast, and currently there are five active on campus.

The larger membership numbers also have a positive effect on the local community. Greek Week 2015 raised more than $20,000 to support various local and national philanthropic organizations. The previous record was a little more than $16,000. During that same week, 899 units were collected during the blood drive, surpassing the previous record.
