Greek Life at UAF
Sigma Sigma Sigma became the first national sorority in Alaska when it was installed at UAF in 1993. Founded in 1898, the sorority has more than 100,000 members nationwide who share a strong commitment to sisterhood, academics and community service as part of the college experience. Sorority membership provides Sigmas with academic support and leadership opportunities.
Sigma Phi Epsilon, the first national fraternity in Alaska, was installed at UAF in 1997. The fraternity began nationally in 1901, founded on the principles of virtue, diligence and brotherly love. It is one of the oldest and most respected fraternities in the nation. Through community service, campus leadership and fraternalism, Sigma Phi Epsilon gives its members the opportunity to live a balanced life.
The UAF Greek Council is more than an Inter-Greek Organization with the purpose of maintaining Greek life for our campus. Made up of Alaska’s first social sorority and fraternity, Greek Council offers opportunities for leadership, community service and, above all, close friendships. We invite other Greek organizations to become involved, not only in maintaining, but also in creating Alaska’s first Social Greek system.
