Scope and content note

The records of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (formerly the Office of Greek Life) provide information on Drexel’s Greek community from 1967 until 2012. The records have been arranged into four series: Administration and governing councils, Events, Materials on individual fraternities and sororities, and Recruitment. The first series, Administration and governing councils, is primarily comprised of the meeting materials of governing and related councils from 1967 until 2007. The bulk of materials are from the Panhellenic Council (the governing body for sororities), and the Greek Relations Board. Also included are records from the Interfraternity Association (the governing body for fraternities), the Multicultural Greek Council (formerly Bi-cultural Council), and the Powelton Village Civic Association. Additional administrative materials include information on behavioral codes, billing, and judicial processes. The second series, Events, includes materials on the events held by Drexel’s fraternities and sororities. Although items range in date from 1971 until 2010, the bulk of items are primarily from 2003 until 2005. A vast majority of records of this series relate to the Greek Week celebration and its preparation. Also included in the series are a number of photographs and slides of various events. Other information on events can also be found in the Administration and governing councils series, the councils naturally planned for or participated in a majority of Greek events. Materials on individual fraternities and sororities are contained in the third series, dating between 1986 and 2012. There is one subseries: videorecordings of Chapter Achievement Plan projects, circa 2006-2008. The fourth and final series consists of recruitment records including flyers, calendars, and brochures; the series also contains policies and documents related to the recruitment process. Related materials are contained in the Panhellenic Council records in the Administration series.
