About Us

Welcome to our community! Active on the Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach campus since 1971, it is a privilege for us to support and advocate for the nearly 600 students who are members of one of our fraternities or sororities on campus. Membership in a fraternity or sorority is an experience unlike any other in college. Students instantly take this large campus community and make it smaller to build meaningful relationships that last long beyond their time here. In addition, students have the opportunity to join inter/national networks that reach far beyond the campus and engage with leadership development curriculum and programming from their early stages of membership.

Our community raises over $115,000 yearly for local and national philanthropic organizations while at the same time providing over 4,000 service hours to local causes and organizations. Our community prides itself on putting academics, service, and philanthropy at the forefront of its work.

There is a place for everyone in this community, so ask questions, be curious, and explore. Our sincere belief in the value of this experience aligns with our high standard of getting students through the recruitment processes to find their fit in our community; to find their forever Riddle family! Our community is comprised of nine IFC chapters, four PHA chapters, and the Order of Omega Academic Honor Society.

Benefits of Membership

Joining a Fraternity or Sorority provides a plethora of benefits

Members create lifelong, supportive, and genuine relationships with their chapter members. Our community believes in building relationships outside of their respective chapters to promote the true essence of Fraternity & Sorority Life, Finding your Forever Family.

Our members also actively participate in community service, giving more than 3,500 hours every year. Our community believes in giving back to local, state, and national organizations to promote responsible, global, and active citizenship.

Members of fraternities and sororities take part in philanthropic fundraising for their national philanthropy, as well as selected local philanthropies. Our community considers philanthropy as one of its main pillars of success. Our community raises over $100,000 a year.

Involvement in a fraternity or sorority immensely boosts a student's connection to the institution and peer-to-peer connections. Our community members are involved as leaders in many other aspects of campus, such as SGA, ROTC, Athletics, and other Student Organizations. Involvement promotes overall satisfaction with college experiences and prepares students  for the professional workforce.

Membership in a fraternity or sorority exposes students to regional and national leadership programs hosted by their respective organizations. These programs, and general membership, connect them with thousands upon thousands of alumni in a plethora of careers, studies, and opportunities. Our community value of Responsible Leadership aligns with all of our organizations.
