One of the many ways you can get involved beyond the classroom is by joining a fraternity or sorority. As a member of the Greek system, you have the opportunity to be part of an organization that broadens your perspective of campus life. Taking take part in the community social services and intramural activities offered within the Greek system, you will enjoy a more diverse experience during your time at UWA. With a diverse array of fraternities, each with its own unique qualities, there is a perfect fit for you here at UWA.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at UWA is the governing body for the three men's social fraternities on campus. Its purpose is to advance The University of West Alabama and its spirit. Furthermore, the council fosters better relations among the member fraternities and insures cooperation between them and University officials. IFC organizations are active in every aspect of campus.
National Pan-Hellenic Council
The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is the umbrella organization for nine predominantly African-American fraternities and sororities. On our campus we are proud to have six of these organizations. The council's purpose is to promote unity and expose its members to the “service for life” philosophy, and to encourage leadership development and scholarship.
There will be many activities throughout the year sponsored by the organizations that make up NPHC. Once a you identify the organization that you would like to belong to, you should attend a social or interest meeting sponsored by the group. Membership intake is the process by which members are inducted to fraternities and sororities. Most NPHC groups encourage men and women to observe their members and educate themselves on the history and philosophies of each group. If you are interested in a particular organization, please do not hesitate to contact the President of the organization or the Office of Student Life.
