UTSA Fraternity|Sorority Life

The Fraternity|Sorority community at the University of Texas at San Antonio was first established in 1977. The community offers fellowship, scholarship, participation in campus activities, leadership training, service to the community and to the University, social outlets and preparation for future careers. Fraternity|Sorority Life also provides an excellent opportunity to foster bonds of friendship that will last for a lifetime.

Joining a Panhellenic Sorority will allow you to be a part of a larger community connected to UTSA as well as San Antonio.

The Fraternity and Sorority Community at the University is made up of 34 organizations and over 800 students. These organizations belong to one of four governing councils:


What is the National What is the National

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) was created in 1902 to promote sorority unity. Today, there are 26 fraternal organizations affiliated with NPC which are represented on over 620 college campuses in the United States and Canada.

When you join one of the six NPC sororities at UTSA, you also become a member of the Panhellenic Council which has over 500 members making us the largest women’s organization on campus! The Panhellenic Council (PHC) promotes equality and establishes guidelines that govern membership recruitment, social activities, and member responsibilities.

We, as Undergraduate Members of women’s fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.

We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character, inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.

Sorority chapters at UTSA provide a diverse selection of events that will enrich your social life and take you beyond the daily routine of class, working, and studying. Formals, casuals, date events, and chapter retreats support the goal of bringing members together to develop life long bonds of friendship. Regardless of the chapter you join, the friendships that are formed within your sorority and the Panhellenic Community are lifelong.

Panhellenic Women are involved in recognized and respected groups on campus such as:

Scholarship Programming

Studies have shown that students who are members of sororities and fraternities are more likely to graduate compared to nonaffiliated students. All sororities encourage, develop, and maintain the academic success of their members.

The council hosts events for the Panhellenic Community to educate our members on topics such as leadership, wellness, and social responsibility. PHC hosts educational speakers to cover various topics relevant to college students each semester. Events have included Painting with a Twist, Identity Workshops, Leadership Development and Women's Empowerment through Journaling. These events are referred to as Trilogies.

To Bria, meeting you through AOII has been one of my favorite memories so far.They say that you meet your lifelong friends in college and I can confirm that is 100% true. I remember the first time we talked during our work week, we sat next to each other and drove together everyday and just started venting to each other about relationships, family, school, basically life. We both instantly felt comfortable enough to start ranting and telling each other everything. Normally, takes me a while to open up to people, but you instantly made me feel safe and comfortable. We look out for each other all the time and always know whensomeone is feeling down. I love that we can call each other out but we both know its always meant with love. I've never really had strong friendships growing up, but you've shown me what a true friendship is and I'm forever grateful for our sisterhood. You push and inspire me to be the best version of myself. I can't thank you enough for always letting me go over and vent and for always making me dinner and cheering me up. I'm so glad to be your roomie, bestie and sister. I love you for life.

To Layla, Where do I even begin? I've known you for such a little time, but it has felt like I've known you for years. You are one of the most kindhearted and genuine people I know, and you're never afraid to tell people who you are and what you feel. Meeting you has been one of the best parts of my AOII experince. Our trip together to see the Dallas Cowboys game, was by far my favorite trip we've had. My car radio was broken so we decided to improvise, and you brought us a speaker so we could jam out with. I thought it was the funniest thing ever and the most entertaining part about the trip. We spent the whole 5 hours belting at the top of our lungs or talking the night away. I know when life gets hard and school gets too much, I can talk to you. We always encourage each other to be our best version of ourselves, reach our goals, and give each other advice. I am so blessed to have met you and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us! Who would have known a midnight impulse decision to go through recruitment would bring me such amazing sisters and my best friend. Love you for life roomie, thank you for being my bestie!

Big & Little Testimonials!

"Big little reveal and getting my fam is one of my favorite memories from my sorority. I love my fam s much and how close we are getting. I love getting dinner after sorority events or brunch over the break to just catch each other up on our lives. I just feel so relaxed and comfortable around them I fe like I can tell them anything"

"The day I found out I was getting twins , I was so ecstatic! I couldn’t have been happier. Leading up to big/little was so nerve wracking and exciting. I wanted to tell my littles Ellen and Corpuz that I was going to be there big and not telling them was the hardest thing to do. Big/little reveal is by far my favorite and happiest memory with my two littles. It was such a wholesome moment because we connected so well together and I’ve enjoyed getting to know them as the semester went on. I feel tha my I can tell my littles anything and everything. I can’t wait to keep making memories with them!"

"My favorite memory with my big Ashley and twin Ellen would be big/little reveal. I remember me and Ellen were trying to piece together all the clues nights before reveal who would be our big and she did leave us contemplating a few times on who it could be but all we knew was that we were twins!!

Running up to the box and seeing Ashley pop out was such a big relief to the both of us because , we knew we were got the best big possible. From now until then they have been a big help to me in Greek life and within the chapter. I know when I need to vent or talk about what’s on my mind they’re one text away. I enjoy all our conversations and jokes and even the Chili’s debriefs after events. I couldn’t ask for a better big and twin I know they will always push me to do my best in anything I do in life and have only the best advice. I can’t wait to make even more lifetime memories with my fam."

Big & Little Testimonies

"A recent highlight of my Phi Mu experience would be taking 'twins' and becoming a big to my two littles Marisa and Kaylee this spring. The title of a big is someone in the chapter who will encourage you and always support you to be the best version of yourself. Having them by my side pushes me to not only be the best student but the best big sister. Our 'fam' will always cheer each other on and I hope everyone finds that unique and special support system in every sisterhood just as I have found mine."

"Joining Phi Mu I had the pleasure of meeting my big, Abi Garza. First meeting her, I instantly knew she was someone I viewed as a mentor. She is very dedicated to the chapter, helpful with anything and everything, prioritizing the chapter second to school. My big is genuine and selfless, always putting others before herself. I am proud and blessed to call Abi Garza my big and I'm so glad Phi Mu introduced me to her.

"When I first met Phi Mu, I immediately knew I wanted to join an organization filled with such amazing girls. I knew I would make amazing memories being surrounded by joyful, loving people. One of my favorite memories I have made so far is how quickly I became close with my big Abi. She welcomed me with open arms since the beginning. She was very easy to talk to and was very outgoing which helped me come out of my shell. Abi has always been there for me no matter what. I knew since bid day that I wanted her to be my big, my mentor, my best friend, and she has proven to be everything I could've ever imagined and more.

When MaryAnn a t to each other on bid day. I never expected for her to not only become my best friend, but the sister that I never had. MaryAnn is the strongest person that I know. She has defeated cancer twice, and truly is a hero. From the second I saw MaryAnn, I knew we were going to do everything together. Thank you for bringing such joy in my life that I never thought I needed. Even though there are moments when I don't want to hear the truth, I appreciate you always being upfront with me. From our crazy adventures to our deep talks, thank you for always being there for me. I'm excited to see what the future holds for us and create wonderful memories together as the duo that we are. I love you my MaryAnn.

-From Anapaulina

I can still remember that wonderful day we met like it was just yesterday. Not only did I gain a sister that day but the best friend I had always wished for. Anapaulina is the most bubbly and outgoing person you’ll ever know. She has the power to brighten up a room wherever she goes. From the moment I met Ana I just knew we were going to be long life friends. Thank you Anapaulina for being this light in my life that I didn’t know I couldn’t live without. You always encourage me to be more outgoing and to not be afraid to be myself. Your laugh is contagious and I’m so happy to share the crazy moment I get to hear it. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us but I just know it will be amazing with you by my side. I love you my Anapaul !!!
