Greek Life

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.
