Washington and Lee University currently hosts one local sorority and one local fraternity on campus. Delta Society was founded in the winter of 2017 and the house is located on sorority row alongside five national sororities. Phi Zeta Delta was founded in the spring of 2018 and the house is located at 5 Henry Street.
Fraternities and sororities exist for the personal and professional development of their members and their community. Greek life is typically founded on principles of scholarship, leadership, friendship, and service that are taught internally by a national ritual to the members who strive to exhibit those principles in their daily rituals.
