Here at Oregon State, we have five distinctive governing councils that make up our fraternity and sorority community.  We encourage you to explore all our councils have to offer!  The information on this page will help you learn more about our community and find your place to belong! 

You can also learn more about our 46 chapters through the Chapter Profiles tab.
