Fraternities & Sororities: New York City

We believe the cornerstones of Greek Letter Organizations are leadership development, service to the community, scholarship, and lifelong friendships through the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood.

NYIT-New York City currently recognizes six Greek Lettered Organizations, all of which represent high ideals and contribute to a positive campus life experience. If you have questions about Greek Life or expanding a Greek organization on campus, please contact Paul Ferrante, assistant director of student engagement, at pferra01@nyit.edu.
