Fraternity & Sorority Life: Thrive at Mines

The Mines Fraternity & Sorority Life Community is home to roughly 17% of our undergraduate students. Joining Greek Life at Mines provides you with several unique opportunities for personal and leadership development that is not offered anywhere else!

Through the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils, there are regular study nights, Greek unity social functions, and philanthropic activities. These councils serve as a governing body to unite, serve, and govern over the current organizations of campus. 

The FSL Office continues to host risk management workshops, wellness events, and utilizes the Pillar Program to promote the value of why being in a brotherhood/sisterhood exists.


Fraternity and Sorority Life students play an active and important role in the community. Each chapter thrives in providing a fulfilling experience for each member, not just in their time at Colorado School of Mines, but after as well. We are noticeable members in all areas of campus, holding leadership roles in other organizations, participating in campus traditions, and providing events for the community.


A key advantage of joining our FSL community is the empowerment we strive to provide our members. We empower each other to be better leaders, activists, collaborators, and friends. Through our work, we equip individuals with education and training to improve their daily lives along with those surrounding them.


Our students aim to make an impact in their academic achievements, community outreach programs, and within each other. FSL is known for its philanthropic endeavors. Members serve to raise money, give back, and make a difference in the work that they choose.


Fraternity & Sorority Life DEIA Position Statement

Colorado School of Mines Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) believes that everyone has a place in our community, and we strive to create an environment of inclusivity, wellness, and support.  

We acknowledge fraternities and sororities were founded on exclusivity and white elitism. We recognize our organizations were founded under these same principles and the harm that has caused within our community but also to our peers and others outside of FSL.  

Through this ownership, we strive to provide quality Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) education to our members. Each member enters these conversations at a different level, and we have set our education up as long-term and consistent programming to ensure our members can grow as individuals and then apply their new knowledge in the spaces they move-in. Mines FSL believes that growth and mistakes, accountability and forgiveness, and learning and unlearning can all co-exist. 

Our goal is to breakthrough FSL stereotypes and show up as allies for all identities. Mines FSL accepts students into our community regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or socioeconomic status. We challenge all fraternity and sorority national headquarters to do the same to support our chapters’ DEIA efforts.
