Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life

Welcome to Southern Miss Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life

The University of Southern Miss fraternities and sororities make an essential contribution to life on campus by providing leadership, citizenship, scholarship, community service, and philanthropy opportunities for students and the greater Hattiesburg Community

Since the first social fraternity was chartered in 1935, the University of Southern Mississippi's fraternity and sorority life community has made invaluable contributions to campus life by providing leadership, citizenship, scholarship, community service, and philanthropic opportunities to students and the greater Hattiesburg Community.

Students who choose to become part of a fraternity or sorority will be exposed to a well-rounded, co-curricular experience. Being a member of one of our 26 national and international sorority and fraternity chapters offers many opportunities and benefits. Sororities and fraternities at USM consistently work together to promote the highest ideals and academic standards, while each maintaining its own unique identity. 

We hope you will consider becoming part of our fraternity and sorority life community at the University of Southern Mississippi.
