Fraternity and Sorority Life

We oversee the fraternity and sorority program at Tufts. With 15 organizations, Fraternity and Sorority Life is a vibrant part of Tufts campus.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (OFSL) considers the 2017-18 academic year to be a time of great change and growth for fraternity and sorority life at Tufts. OFSL is working with chapters to remodel Greek life, including advancing gender inclusion in fraternity and sorority life at the local and national level, removing financial barriers to membership through new scholarships, implementing anti-hazing measures in the new member process, and creating safer party policies.

OFSL will work to improve the Tufts fraternity and sorority experience in the short term with major changes for the Fall 2017. OFSL is also committed to longer term enhancement of the entire campus community.

Our History

The first organization at Tufts was established in 1855, and the fraternity and sorority tradition is strongly woven into the fabric of the university, continuously growing and changing to meet the needs of today's collegiate student population.

Membership enhances opportunities to meet new people, achieve academically, hone leadership skills and serve the broader community through philanthropic and service opportunities. Alumni networking and mentoring also illustrate the benefits of lifelong membership and giving back to the next generation of Tufts students.

Our Values

Fraternities and sororities at Tufts are founded on the pillars of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Brotherhood and Sisterhood. 

At the Fall 2017 Retreat, fraternity and sorority leaders will work together, considering input from their chapter members, to create a set of common shared values and a mission statement that aligns with the mission and values of Tufts University.
