Fraternities and Sororities

Social clubs have a rich history at Abilene Christian University. Members form long-lasting friendships as they participate together in events such as Sing Song, service projects, retreats, formal social events and devotionals. Students involved in fraternities and sororities are encouraged to value academic excellence.

Fall 2021

In the fall of 2021, second-year students can rush and join fraternities and sororities.  Following Homecoming of 2021, first-year students may begin the rushing process.

Starting January 2022 and each January after, all students, including first-year students, can participate in rushing and joining Greek life.  Sing Song and Homecoming will continue to serve as significant opportunities for alumni to return to campus, and new fraternity and sorority members will continue to participate in the Homecoming parade.  As Greek life at ACU grows to include first-year students, they will also expand their commitment to philanthropy and spiritual formation.

Together, we are committed to ensuring our university continues to provide students a vibrant Christ-centered experience.
