The Greek Life
Who We Are
Fraternities and sororities are an established tradition on the University of Montana campus, dating back over 110 years. Our community is home to five fraternities and three Panhellenic sororities. These organizations strive to develop leadership skills, social responsibility, and academic excellence in each of our members.
These organizations are governed by student-led boards called councils. At the University of Montana, we have two different councils that provide governance, accountability, educational opportunities, and structure for our fraternities and sororities: the Interfraternity Council (IFC), and National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). To learn more about each council and the organizations they govern, please reference our governance page.
Participation in a fraternity or sorority provides you with an experience like no other on a college campus. Members of fraternities and sororities commit to a lifelong participation in their organization and aspire to high ideals and values that guide them throughout their collegiate education and beyond. Immediately upon membership, you will be invited to experience all of the benefits of fraternity and sorority membership.
Our foundation rests on the extended support system that we create, which fosters our members' academic, personal, and professional successes. As a community, we strive to improve not only our individual members but also the local community as a whole. We hope that our lifelong connection will provide a positive and lasting effect on all those who come to know us.

Register for Panhellenic Primary Recruitment
Panhellenic Primary Recruitment is a fully-structured, five-day process in which Potential New Members (students participating in recruitment, also known as PNMs) meet current sorority members from all three chapters and learns more about the Panhellenic experience at U of M. Each participant is connected to a recruitment counselor who serves as a resource and mentor throughout the experience and with a group of peers going through the process together.

Register for Fraternity Recruitment
IFC Recruitment at the University of Montana begins with an IFC Showcase, where all six chapters introduce prospective members to their community. Shortly after the showcase, each chapter begins its intake process by hosting events where interested students can meet active chapter members, ask questions about the national organization, and learn more about the intake experience. These events include community service, game nights, lunch/dinner, roller skating, study sessions, dance/exercise classes, crafting and creative arts, trivia, and more.
