Greek Life

    • Pitt-Bradford is home to five fraternities & four sororities, dating back to 1985.
    • Members of fraternities & 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 10% of our students are members of fraternities & sororities & 10% of UPB alumni are members.
    • We're proud that Greeks achieve higher GPAs, are retained at higher rates, and graduate at significantly higher rates than the campus.
    • Greeks also annually produce 2,000 hours of service & raise more than $2,000 for charity.
    • Fraternities & sororities recruit both Fall & Spring semester. Students must have at least 12 Pitt credit hours & a 2.50 cumulative GPA to join.
