A Greek organization consists of a group of individuals that bond together for life through common goals, rituals, and aspirations. Men’s organizations are known as fraternities, from the Greek word for “brother” ; women’s groups are known as sororities, from the Greek word for “sister”. Fraternity and sorority names consist of a combination of two or three Greek letters.
Many Greek organizations have rituals, which through every member's participation, help strengthen their bonds. Rituals are based on common principles such as honor, friendship, truth and knowledge.
Fraternities and sororities have been a part of college campuses since the late 18th century. Greek organizations have been on campus at IIT for more than 110 years.
