Fraternity & Sorority Life

Greek Retreat Photo
Since their inception in 1952 the Fraternity and Sorority men and women at McNeese have been the cornerstone of student involvement, leadership development, and campus traditions, and this continues today (Taylor, 1989). McNeese Fraternity and Sorority students represent over 500 members of the student community, totaling just over 8% of undergraduate enrollment. Fraternity and Sorority members hold all levels of campus leadership positions, serve on numerous campus committees, and represent McNeese at local, state, and national conventions.

McNeese Panhellenic Association

Every woman joining a National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sorority at McNeese State University becomes a member of the Panhellenic Association. The Panhellenic Association is the largest fraternal governing body at McNeese. Within the Panhellenic Association is the Panhellenic Council, composed of two representatives from each member sorority on campus. This council makes decisions on various issues regarding our three NPC chapters, organizes all-sorority women programming on campus, and serves as the leadership body for our NPC sororities.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at McNeese State University is currently composed of seven of the nine International Greek letter Sororities and Fraternities. The NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions. Each of the nine NPHC organizations evolved during a period when African Americans were being denied essential rights and privileges afforded others. Racial isolation on predominantly white campuses and social barriers of class on all campuses created a need for African Americans to align themselves with other individuals sharing common goals and ideals.

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at McNeese is currently made of up five fraternities. The IFC is the central governing body for these fraternities at McNeese and serves as the mechanism through which the men regulate themselves. The IFC deals with a multitude of issues ranging from recruitment to campus involvement to service projects and philanthropy. They also serve as the judicial arm of fraternities.
