Greek Life

Greek Life

Greek Life offers students additional opportunities to bond with others who share a common goal.  Brothers or sisters within individual Greek organizations focus on the mission and goals of the sorority/fraternity for improving the campus and neighboring community, while forming life-long bonds through team building events and activities. 

Currently, SJC is actively represented by six national organizations:

Alpha Gamma Delta Women's Fraternity

Alpha Gamma Delta is an international women's fraternity that promotes academic excellence, philanthropic giving, ongoing leadership and personal development, and above all, a spirit of loving sisterhood. Guided by our purpose, Alpha Gamma Deltas strive to attain a higher standard, thereby improving their lives, the lives of those around them and the communities in which they live. Together, we continually work to inspire the women and impact the world.

The Lambda Alpha Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta was installed on May 5, 2012. The Lambda Alpha Chapter was the 187th installed chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta.

Alpha Phi Delta National Fraternity

To promote a lifelong brotherhood based around the values of loyalty, perseverance and fraternity.

The colony currently has 84 brothers (17 undergraduate brothers and 67 alumni) and is one of the premier undergraduate entities of Alpha Phi Delta. The powerful, active and dedicated alumni support continues to promote brotherhood long after your undergraduate days.
