The term “Greek” refers to Greek-letter organizations, which are properly know as fraternities (men) and sororities (women). They are single-sex, private, social organizations protected by an exemption from Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 in order to remain single-sex organizations. Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations committed to the ideals of scholarship, leadership, service and brotherhood/sisterhood. The Oklahoma State University fraternity and sorority community is nationally recognized as one of the best. Locally, they are known for their positive contributions to the campus and community. For example, they are an integral part of America’s Largest Homecoming Celebration every fall!
