Is fraternity and sorority life new to you?

This section is designed to provide helpful information and answer frequently asked questions about fraternities and sororities. There are many myths about fraternities and sororities, but the reality is men and women who belong to these organizations are committed to their academics, volunteer within the community, develop and strengthen their leadership skills, and form a campus network that consists of students and administrators. All fraternities and sororities are based on values, ethics and high standards. Keep an open mind, and consider all the benefits fraternity and sorority membership has to offer!

Please feel free to contact Fraternity & Sorority Life at UMSGreeks@olemiss.edu or 662-915-7609. Or, if you are planning a visit to campus, please drop by our office, Room 422 in the Student Union.
