Fraternity life is a tradition deeply rooted in the history of the University of Washington. For over a 100 years, fraternities at the University of Washington have strived for a high level of excellence and success. Through individual chapter academic enrichment and community service programs, fraternity men have played an influential role on campus, in the surrounding community and throughout the greater Seattle area.
Through their experiences in a fraternity, young men are able to develop leadership skills and experience tremendous personal growth while pursuing their academic interests. Fraternities host community service events, raise money for local and national charities, and assist each other in maintaining high academic standards. During their time spent at the University of Washington, fraternity men develop lifelong friendships. Joining a fraternity is one of the best decisions you can make.
