Greek Life

Our Greek students have built an especially strong campus culture. They've earned national recognition by the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values for academic achievement, public relations, self-governance and judicial affairs.

That's why nearly 20 percent of NWU students are involved in Nebraska Wesleyan's Greek system.

Our six chapters—three sororities and three fraternities—come together to form one strong community of some of the most effective leaders, highest achieving students, passionate community activists and best friends you'll meet.

Greek Leadership and Involvement

The Greek community develops advanced leadership skills within its members and provides opportunities to put those skills into action on campus and in the Lincoln community.

Greek members have numerous opportunities to serve in leadership positions in their chapter, within the governing councils, Interfraternity Council (IFC) and Panhellenic Council (PHC), and participate in conferences, workshops, or other educational experiences here at NWU and across the country.

Philanthropy and Community Service

Giving back through community service and philanthropy projects is a vital aspect of each fraternity and sorority member's experience. Each member is required to complete a number of community service hours set by each chapter.

  • Greek members complete more than 6,500 hours of service each year.
  • Chapters raised over $60,000 for various organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Serious Fun Network, the American Cancer Society and Lincoln's Friendship Home.
  • The Greek community donated 1,592 pounds of food to the alumni-directed Food Bank of Lincoln.
  • NWU's fraternities and sororities raise approximately $20,000 each year for Relay for Life.
  • Greek organizations also fundraise to provide their members with academic scholarships.
