Fraternity & Sorority Life
Stanford's Fraternity and Sorority communities offer a vibrant and diverse experience that is as old as the founding of the university. We invite you to explore the information we have for prospective and current members, community leaders, alumni, parents and family, and friends of the community.
Each class slate works closely with a University assigned advisor. Class Presidents are expected to meet with their assigned advisors on a regular basis. Sophomores and juniors work with Office of Student Engagement staff and the seniors work with the Stanford Alumni Association. All are expected to cultivate close working relationships with other University staff including those from the Undergraduate Advising, Career Development, Vaden Health Promotion, Campus Recreation, Office of Development, VPSA and VPUE.

Framework for Non-Student Involvement in Voluntary Student Organizations
Student organizations have long sought the counsel and expertise of various non-student advisors, instructors, coaches, and community members (“non-students”). Involvement in Voluntary Student Organizations is a privilege afforded on the expectation that certain expectations are met.
