Fraternities & Sororities

Greek Life on campus offers a variety of ways to meet new people, become active on campus, and serve the campus and greater community. Greek-letter societies were founded on the ideals of leadership, scholarship, service, and friendship and our Greek community provides a great balance of social networking, community service, and personal development possibilities.


SUNY Old Westbury is working with numerous organizations throughout the 2015-2016 academic year.  If your organization is interested in expanding to our campus, please note that space is not available until Fall 2016. Please see Fraternity and Sorority Life Handbook and contact Jamie Dresher at
