Welcome Parents!California State University, Chico’s Greek community is dynamic and growing. Currently there are over 1,200 Chico State students affiliated with 26 University Recognized Greek letter fraternities and sororities. Fraternity and sorority members represent approximately 12% of the undergraduate student body.
University Recognized fraternities and sororities are self-governing organizations that are formally recognized by the University. The Greek Life Office coordinates most programmatic and administrative functions. Our Greek Life Coordinators are full-time professionals who oversee the operations and education of the Greek Community.Being a member of our Greek community has helped many Chico State fraternity and sorority members adapt to the scholastic and social challenges posed by college life. They find a support system within their chapter that is “a home away from home.” Chico State Greek students gain valuable leadership skills, raise money for charities like Up ‘Til Dawn, and frequently exceed the all campus GPA. They hold AS leadership positions, volunteer thousands of hours each year to the Chico community, and make friendships that will last a lifetime.
