Students in fraternities and sororities hone their leadership skills as they participate in governance and community-service activities. The seven national fraternities, three local sororities, one national sorority, and one coeducational service society, provide alternative ways of forming relationships. About 25 percent of Kenyon students become members of Greek associations.
Fraternities and sororities at Kenyon are not what you'd expect, necessarily. Distinctively, fraternities, sororities and societies occupy "divisions" of residence halls at the southern end of campus, so they live in an integrated way among independent students. Social opportunities hosted by Greek organizations are open to the whole campus.
