Welcome, USC Trojans!

Part of your undergraduate journey is seeking and participating in involvement opportunities to enrich your Trojan experience. It is great to hear you are interested in joining a fraternity or sorority at the University of Southern California!

Fraternities and sororities are an integral part of USC since their beginning in 1889. Founding principles of academics, civic engagement, leadership, cultural understanding, and well-being are the guiding values in which chapters strive for locally and nationally.

The Trojan Greek Community includes 50+ organizations organized into five governing councils along with two honor societies, representing 20% of the undergraduate student population. The five governing councils are: Asian Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council, and Panhellenic Council.

As you begin your journey in joining a fraternity or sorority, please note:


  • Alcohol Edu, Think About It, and On the Safe Side:  Students new to the university are to complete the required university educational programs  before beginning any recruitment or intake process for any fraternity or sorority. Not completing these educational courses can delay your ability to join a fraternity or sorority.
