Fraternity and Sorority Life at USC Upstate

What will be your legacy?

USC Upstate is home to 12 active Greek Letter fraternities and sororities. Fraternity & Sorority Life is housed in the Office of Student Life, located in the Olin B. Sansbury Campus Life Center.

Every chapter at USC Upstate was established by its founders based on a commitment to certain values: brotherhood or sisterhood, service, scholarship, and philanthropy. These organizations are more than social groups; they offer tools for personal development and campus involvement while also allowing opportunities to serve the greater community.

Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifelong commitment, so we encourage you to learn more about our chapters as you make your decision on whether or not to “Go Greek.”
