Fraternity & Sorority Life The mission of Fraternity & Sorority Life at USC Upstate is to enhance student development through involvement in Greek-letter fraternities and sororities. We strive to foster positive campus, community, and inter-organizational relationships in order to encour-age a unified Greek system. Students are encouraged to place equal emphasis on the philanthropic, educational, personal development, and social aspects of membership in a fraternity or sorority. Fraternity & Sorority Life is advised by the Office of Student Life, and governed by three councils; Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and Upstate Panhellenic Council (UPC). All Greek letter fraternities and sororities at USC Upstate are required to register with the Office of Student Life and affiliate with their respective govern-ing council to be in good standing with the University.
