Joining JWU’s Greek community is a great way for you to develop socially, intellectually and professionally within a single organization. You'll be challenged to push yourself, honing your leadership skills in addition to your cooperative spirit. At the same time, you'll be supported by the close-knit social network of your Greek peers. The Providence Campus currently offers membership in eight fraternities, nine sororities and one social fellowship. While all of these organizations are nationally or internationally affiliated, the university oversees the Greek community on campus. Being a member a Greek organization means always being ready to lend a hand. Emphasizing community outreach as much as high scholastic achievement, activities include peer tutoring and counseling; special scholarships and awards; and chapter study hours. Additionally, Greek organizations collectively sponsor philanthropic events throughout the year. Fraternities and sororities also participate in many social, service & university sponsored events events, from Family Weekend, Greek Week, and socials with other Greek organizations to dinner dances, and awards banquets. The following fraternities and sororities are supported by and follow guidelines and regulations established by the university.
