A Community Which Spans Generations
Dating back to 1854, Franklin & Marshall College's (F&M's) fraternity and sorority communities have a long-standing legacy of developing students holistically for lives of leadership, service, scholarship, integrity, and friendship, fostering lifelong friendships and generational affinities and a lasting positive impact on the campus community.
Approximately 25% of F&M students are members of the fraternity and sorority community. (Spring 2022).
- The All-Greek Term GPA outperformed the Non-Affiliated Term GPA by .11 in Spring 2022.
