In 1902, under the guidance of Father Matthew Cochran, a small group of students from St. Mary’s Hall (later Corr Hall) founded the first fraternity at Villanova with the purpose of studying the classics and promoting social interactions.
Today, over a century later, fraternities and sororities are thriving at Villanova with similar missions that seek to evoke leadership qualities in their members by sponsoring service, philanthropic, scholarly, and social activities.
The Fraternity and Sorority community at Villanova University has grown tremendously over the last one hundred years. Today it consists of over 1,600 diverse students in 9 fraternities, 9 sororities and 10 multicultural Greek organizations, all with national affiliations.
We hope this website will provide you some insight into these organizations and the Greek community at Villanova University.
