Pitt Bradford is home to five fraternities and four sororities, dating back to 1985. Members of fraternities and sororities strive to uphold their founding values of Scholarship, Leadership, Service & Brotherhood/Sisterhood in their everyday lives.
Many students consider participating in one of these groups an important part of their collegiate experience. Currently 11% of our students are members of fraternities and sororities.
Recruitment is a mutual selection process, where potential new members look for a fraternity or sorority to join and where the fraternities and sororities look for new members. Fraternities and sororities at Pitt-Bradford recruit both Fall and Spring semester.
