Who We Are
Becoming a Florida Greek is a popular option for many UF students. Approximately 5,200 or 15% of current UF undergraduates are members of either a sorority or fraternity. At UF, students have the option of joining chapters that fall under one of four governing councils.
Many of our culturally-based organizations (Asian, Black, Jewish, Latino/a, South Asian) evolved during a time when they were not allowed to join "white" organizations. None of the 63 UF sororities and fraternities may discriminate on the basis of age, color, creed, handicap, national origin, race, or religion.
The Interfraternity Council at the University of Florida consists of 26 men's fraternities, the majority of which have privately-owned chapter houses.
IFC chapters hosts recruitment at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.
The Multicultural Greek Council at the University of Florida consists of 12 organizations (6 fraternities and 6 sororities) that are culturally based (e.g. Latino, Asian, South Asian, Multicultural) in nature. MGC organizations traditionally have membership intake once a year at various times (either Fall or Spring).
The National Pan-Hellenic Council at the University of Florida consists of 9 Historically-Black organizations (5 fraternities and 4 sororities) that each typically hold membership intake once a year at various times (either Fall or Spring).
The UF Panhellenic Council consists of 16 sororities (or women's fraternities) which all have privately-owned houses
and participate in recruitment the week before classes begin in the Fall semester. Several Panhellenic chapters also have limited
informal recruitment during the Spring semester.
