About the Community
The Fraternity & Sorority community at Kansas State University has been in existence since 1913, with a continuing tradition of excellence. Through the years, the community has fostered academic excellence, leadership ability, philanthropic services, and has actively contributed to both the campus and Manhattan communities. The community consists of 20 sororities and 32 fraternities, with a total membership of almost 4,000 undergraduate students. While each organization maintains its own activities, traditions, and national affiliations, each founded on similar principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and lifelong friendship.

Theta Xi in 2015, Farmhouse in 2016, Delta Upsilon in 2017, Delta Sigma Phi in 2018, and Theta Xi (again!) in 2019
