History

Rockhurst's Greek community can trace its roots back to 1924 with the founding of Alpha Delta Gamma, a group of young men seeking a common bond of academic fellowship. A second fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon, was founded in 1966. In 1973 Sigma Alpha Epsilon became the third men's organization and in 1996, a fourth fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha, was added. Rockhurst's women's organizations have a much shorter history. Alpha Sigma Alpha and Zeta Tau Alpha were founded in 1994. Delta Xi Phi Multicultural Sorority joined the campus community in May 2006 and Theta Phi Alpha joined in February 2007.

While each of these eight organizations is unique in its ritual and traditions, all of them share the common bond of developing lifelong friendships, dedication to service with a strong emphasis on academic success. Rockhurst Greeks are among the academically strongest group of students on-campus. 

The Office of Student Life is located in Massman Hall. The Assistant Director advises the Interfraternity Council (men's groups) and Panhellenic Councils (women's groups), as well as the Greek Council (overseeing judicial processes), and provides oversight and support to the eight national organizations on campus. She also advises the Rockhurst chapter of Omega of Omega, the National Greek Honor Society.
