Fraternity & Sorority Life


Fraternities & Sororities

Fraternity & Sorority Life on campus offers a variety of ways to meet new people, become active on campus, and serve the campus and greater community. Fraternities and Sororities were founded on the basis of leadership, scholarship, service, and friendship. Our community provides a great balance of social networking, community service, and personal development possibilities.

At Old Westbury, we offer a diverse mix of fraternities and sororities with the hopes that everyone who wants to join finds one that closely matches his or her values and personality. While our organizations support different philanthropies and causes, and have different histories and traditions, all of our them exist to make men better men and women better women through fostering the ideals of unity, respect, scholarship, service and leadership.


After much thought and assessment of our current Fraternity & Sorority Community, the Center for Student Leadership & Involvement is open to conversations regarding expansion.  Please contact Kya Simmons by email: to discuss expansion possibilities.
