Unrecognized Chapters

Unfortunately, over the past years, a few fraternities have lost recognition as official student organizations by Villanova University and thier national organization because they failed to comply with university or inter/national guidelines and policies. Any reports regarding activity of these organizations should be directed to Fraternity and Sorority Life staff by calling 610.519.7280 or by emailing  

There should be great concern about the well being of students who choose to join unrecognized organizations. Because they operate illegally and without University supervision, they are without personal liability insurance and affiliation with an inter/national organization. The most important fact to understand is that these groups ARE NOT fraternities, as they are devoid of any ritual or recognition by an inter/national organization and the Villanova community. A complete list of recognized fraternities and soroties at Villanova University can be found by clicking here.

Below is a list of recent unrecognized groups, i.e., former groups with no current recognition by a national organization or Villanova University:

  • Sigma Alpha Epsilon "SAE"
  • Phi Gamma Delta "FIJI"
