General Fraternities and Sororities

General fraternities and sororities (also known as social fraternities and sororities) are those intercollegiate Greek Letter Organizations (GLOs) that have social characteristics, a selection process based on tangible and intangible criteria, and may select members regardless of their course of study.  With few exceptions, one may belong to only one general fraternity or sorority.

Note: Some organizations listed here are social fellowships rather than fraternities or sororities.  Several organizations do not use Greek nomenclature.
