Fraternities & Sororities
Forget what you learned from GRΣΣK or Animal House.
The fraternities and sororities at Widener are a bunch of do-gooders, loaded with campus leaders who do well in school, make the world a better place, and continue to make the university proud.
There are many benefits to going Greek. All of the Widener organizations provide leadership opportunities, a dynamic network of other students and alumni, and a close-knit campus community that exists even after you graduate.
Members of Greek-letter organizations have a strong presence on campus and an even stronger one nationally. Fraternal organizations provide great mentoring opportunities and resources, as well as scholarships and job leads.
