Sororities : Greek Life on Campus
Greek life on campus dates back to 1922, with the first sorority, Phi Sigma Tau, established in 1924. The Inter-Sorority Council, which later became the Pan-Hellenic Council, was founded in 1928.
Sororities were very popular in the 1940s and 1950s, with several sorority houses located in Trenton before Rider's relocation to Lawrenceville in the early 1960s.
The 1990s and early 2000s saw the establishment of two Latin sororities (Lambda Theta Alpha, in 1991, and Chi Upsilon Sigma, in 2002) and one African-American sorority (Zeta Phi Beta, in 1996) on campus.
As of 2020, there are nine sororities and six fraternities at Rider. Rider Greek life continues to be popular, with 14% of the student body belonging to a Greek organization.
