History of Greek Life
The first fraternal organization was organized at Kettering in 1921. Five years later, the first officially recognized organization was formed with the founding of White Elephants in 1926, ushering in a new age of student life on campus.
The Greek Community has had a long and vibrant history on campus. Today, the Greek community is stronger than ever, with 11 NIC fraternities, 5 NPHC organizations and 3 NPC sororities. The current Greek community accounts for more than 40 percent of the total student population at Kettering. The names may change, the colors may be different, but the values, life-lessons and friendships continue on campus.
