Fraternity and Sorority Life

The University of San Diego is home to 18 fraternities and sororities. The Fraternity and Sorority Life community makes up approximately 26% of USD's student body. Our members are committed to maintain five core principles and striving to develop strong friendships and leadership potential.

We are prioritizing the health and safety of all members by adhering to the CDC and San Diego County health guidelines.

Built on Five Core Principles

Growth Through the Attainment of Knowledge

USD Fraternity & Sorority Life challenges members to achieve high academic standards, practice intellectual curiosity, and seek continuous learning. Many chapters host study sessions, recognize academic achievement, and offer various types of support for members’ cultural, research, and professional interests.


Leadership Through the Strength of Character

USD Fraternity & Sorority Life creates membership experiences in leading, influencing, and changing organizations to align values with actions and intent with impact. Executive board roles, educational workshops, leadership retreats, and chapter advisors all help members recognize and activate their own potential as leaders.

Service Through Civic Engagement

USD Fraternity & Sorority Life equips members to serve our campus, community, and world in ways that make a real impact and confront humanity's most urgent challenges. Members engage in changemaking through their national philanthropies, local community partnerships, social justice advocacy, and investing their time, talents, and treasures as volunteers.

Belonging Through Inclusive Practices

USD Fraternity & Sorority Life deepens members’ understanding of their own identities, their relationships, and their role in creating a socially just community. Membership in a fraternity or sorority extends beyond the collegiate years and includes a lifelong commitment to the organization’s ideals and values.



Health Through Safety and Well-Being

USD Fraternity & Sorority Life educates members on healthy practices for managing stress, interacting with others, and honoring all dimensions of well-being. Members practice community care, particularly during high-stress times of the semester, and hold their organizations accountable to considering member health and safety at all times.
