Greek Life includes fraternities, sororities, and co-ed organizations that play an active role on the SUNY Delhi campus. Today, as in the past, these Greek organizations are dedicated to the ideals of scholarship, leadership, friendship, loyalty, and community service. SUNY Delhi is committed to the ideal of a Greek system that supports and enhances the co-curricular educational mission by fostering the true meaning of fraternal values and principles. The college is actively involved in a positive relationship with these organizations through the Greek Council, which is made up of representatives from all of the recognized fraternities and sororities.
Students are free to explore joining a fraternity or sorority after they meet the requirements for membership set by the college and the Greek Council. The pledging process traditionally takes place during both fall and spring semesters. Hazing in any form is not permitted and will not be tolerated. Students seeking to join a Greek organization are to be treated with respect and dignity at all times. Refer to Greek Life for more information.

They also sponsor and participate in many different programs and activities, including Bible studies, parties, holiday worship services, retreats, service projects, concerts, and trips.
