Through philanthropy, fundraising, and hands-on service, the W&M Fraternity & Sorority community serves others. With nearly 30 chapters and 1700 members - that's a lot of time and talents being shared!
Each of chapters represented at W&M participates in a national cause and then frequently support local agencies, too. Fun events take place all throughout the year - all in the name of a good cause.
The Panhellenic and Inter-Fratenrity Councils also work to support community-wide service. The fraternity and sorority community at W&M have been partnering with the Arc of Greater Williamsburg since 1999. Our big event - the Annual Arc Carnival takes place in the spring semester - but fraternity and sorority members also come together each month to host a monthly Arc program or event. To learn more about the partnership between our community and the Arc, check out our Arc Infomational Sheet.
