Greek life at Georgia Tech includes over 50 active chapters of social fraternities and sororities.[1] All of the groups are chapters of national organizations, including members of the North-American Interfraternity Conference, National Panhellenic Conference, and National Pan-Hellenic Council. The first fraternity to establish a chapter at Georgia Tech was Alpha Tau Omega in 1888, before the school held its first classes. Most of the IFC and CPC organizations have houses on Georgia Tech's campus, generally on or near Fifth Street, Ferst Avenue, Fowler Street, or Techwood Drive, in the area known as the "Greek Sector."[2] The first sorority to establish a chapter was Alpha Xi Delta in 1954.[1] Students with Greek affiliation make up around 26 percent of the undergraduate student body.[3]
