Jewish Greek Life

Greek life has existed at Rutgers since 1845, when the University was a men’s only school. Since the time when the school went co-ed in the 1980s, it has grown to include over 20 fraternities and 8 sororities. Historically, some Greek-letter organizations were founded as Jewish organizations because of discrimination towards Jewish students found in other organizations at the time. Some of these historically Jewish groups exist as modern fraternities and sororities at Rutgers. Today, fraternities and sororities are non-partisan, allowing membership regardless of race, religion, or creed.   In addition to a vibrant Greek system, the Jewish Greek Network was created as an initiative of the Peer Network Engagement Internship to provide Jewish students in the Greek system an opportunity to hold social and educational events tailored to students involved in Greek Life.  For more information, please contact Greg Yellin, Director of Engagement, at [email protected] or join the Rutgers Jewish-Greek Network facebook group.
