Join Sorority and Fraternity Life at UC San Diego

All organizations belong to one of the four governing councils represented on campus: National Pan-Hellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, College Panhellenic Association, which allow for self-governance and peer-to-peer accountability. While each council is unique, they are part of the greater SFL community and constantly collaborate to support the membership experience.  Learn more about our councils by visiting their page.
