There are currently 24 fraternities and four sororities at Rensselaer providing a variety of choices for the more than 1,500 students who choose to join the Greek community. Rensselaer's rich and dynamic fraternities and sororities contribute to many of the Institute's proud traditions, and the Greek community's involvement in volunteer and leadership work in the Troy community has earned public statements of recognition by civic leaders. Rensselaer applauds the valuable contribution Greek life provides students, the Institute, and the city of Troy.
As a fundamental component to the Rensselaer undergraduate experience, we utilize the values and ideals of the Rensselaer Greek community to create an environment conducive to a successful collegiate fraternal experience.
The Greek community strives for excellence in scholarship, service, leadership, involvement, diversity, community, and brotherhood/sisterhood.
