Sororities & Fraternities
Welcome to the birthplace of sororities.
Our Greek life is like no other.
Monmouth is home to three sorority chapters and four fraternity chapters including the founding alpha chapters of two women’s fraternities, known as the Monmouth Duo. More than 25 percent of our students are involved in Greek life.
Way more than just for fun
Our Greek community is more than roommates and a fun place to live. Each Greek organization is its own type of learning laboratory where you’ll have the chance to lead, participate in government, and volunteer and fight for causes you believe in. You’ll learn skills that will help you in your career — such as how to run meetings, set and balance budgets, advertise and sell your organization, and establish relationships in the local community.
Not only will you build community with your new sisters and brothers and alumni, but you’ll also have access to a national network each Greek organization is part of. That’s a whole lot of meaningful connections, creating countless opportunities, as you grow your career.
Hazing has no home here
Students often ask us about Greek life horror stories on other college campuses or if it’s like the movies. We totally get it, and we welcome those questions. At Monmouth we only allow the best and healthiest aspects of sorority and fraternity living.
We, and the state of Illinois, strictly forbid any type of hazing. Students who participate in Greek life are some of the best, brightest and most compassionate Scots on campus. You’ll always feel welcome and safe.
