The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown offers organizations, clubs, and groups that enrich the lives of students. The experiences within these groups will remain a part of our students' lives forever.

Greek Life

Pitt-Johnstown's social fraternities and sororities provide students the opportunity to become part of a group that shares common ideals and promotes community service, scholastic excellence, and philanthropic endeavors, as well as opportunities for social activities and leadership development.

Fraternities and sororities regularly sponsor service activities, intramural teams, social events, and educational programs. The groups sponsor academic activities and recognition; the scholastic achievement of members is monitored  by the organization.
