Fraternity and Sorority Life
Fraternity and Sorority life at Reinhardt is a thriving mix of social, academic, and service-oriented activities. There is one fraternity chapter and one sorority chapter at Reinhardt. The chapters are all members of well-established international Greek-letter organizations. Fraternity and sorority membership is available only to Reinhardt students. All Greek-letter organizations at Reinhardt recruit new members in both the fall and spring semesters. There are also several events throughout the semesters designed to provide all men and women interested in the process a chance to learn more, as well as meet members of each of the organizations.

Chapters at Reinhardt
Zeta Tau Alpha was established on October 15th, 1898. Nine young women at Virginia State Female Normal School formalized their friendship by forming Zeta Tau Alpha, a fraternity that would continue to grow throughout the next century and beyond.
Zeta Tau Alpha is the third Largest National Women's Fraternity. Now, more than 231,000 women have been initiated into the sisterhood of Zeta Tau Alpha. The founders, nine young women, envisioned an organization that would perpetuate their ties of friendship.
Kappa Sigma Fraternity is a unique experience. Founded at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869, we pride ourselves upon our tight-knit brotherhood and diversity. Individuals who originate from every background mesh together to make the perfect band of brothers in Kappa Sigma. Members of Kappa Sigma hold the Fraternity's four pillars―fellowship, leadership, scholarship and service―as cornerstones of their lives.
