In 1776, five students at William & Mary founded Phi Beta Kappa, the first organization to call itself a fraternity. It is only appropriate that university is often referred to as the "Birthplace of the American College Fraternity." Since that time, fraternities and sororities have evolved, but still remain committed to similar principles and values, such as scholarship, service, brotherhood/sisterhood and leadership. Here at William & Mary the tradition of fraternity remains strong and our Fraternity & Sorority Community plays a vital role on campus and in the community.
For Spring 2021, joining processes for potential new members have been slightly altered in accordance with William & Mary recognized student organization guidelines.
For those interested in joining an IFC Fraternity or Panhellenic Sorority, please register for IFC Recruitment or fill out the Panhellenic Spring 2021 Continuous Open Bidding Interest Form, both available on TribeLink. Note that registering for IFC Recruitment or filling out the Interest Form for Panhellenic Continuous Open Bidding does not commit you to joining any IFC or Panhellenic organization for Spring 2021. However, they are each necessary first steps for joining and receiving more information.
