Fraternities and Sororities
Being a member of a Greek-letter organization at KSC helps students to connect to campus, meet new people, be a part of campus traditions, and explore various leadership opportunities. Keene State College currently has 8 inter/nationally recognized Greek-letter organizations (3 sororities and 5 fraternities) active on campus, overseen by the Inter-Fraternity Council (governing body for fraternities) and the Panhellenic Council (governing body for sororities). In addition, in a continued effort to promote scholarship, outstanding members of the fraternity/sorority community are recognized for their academic achievement by being inducted into the Order of Omega Honor Society. The Fraternity/Sorority community at KSC holds the values of scholarship, service, brotherhood/sisterhood and leadership in high regard.
Honor Societies at Keene State College provide talented students the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to academic excellence in a chosen discipline or field of study.

Starting A New Organization
We plan to take the rest of the 2017 calendar year to allow already recognized student organizations to submit these documents to us, review all mission statements, and ensure that existing student organization missions are not duplicated. This will also allow us time to implement a new system for maintaining this information online, with the goal of providing our student body the most accurate record of the student organizations available to them. During the remainder of the 2017 calendar year, Student Assembly will not review any new and potential student organizations for official College recognition. Those organizations who have already submitted paperwork for recognition will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis from March 20, 2017 until March 31, 2017. This protocol will ensure that any potential new organizations are not duplicating efforts already in place by existing organizations. Those potential organizations submitting for review during March 20-March 31, 2017 and granted recognition will be placed on a probationary status consistent with Student Assembly’s recognition policy.
