Fraternal organizations have been a core component of the San Diego State community since 1899! Today, there are 46 recognized sororities and fraternities and over 3,800 student members. These organizations create smaller communities with the larger University environment for the purpose of facilitating growth of SDSU students. Fraternities and sororities each have a unique purpose based on values and ethics that foster the highest ideals and behavior.
