6 Celebrities that were Involved in Greek Life

Contrary to popular belief, celebrities are normal people. Many of them went to college, joined the Greek system, and graduated with custom letters on their stoles. We tend to focus on the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but these celebrities pledged to an exclusive social network before finding their fame. Below, we’ve shared a list of our 6 favorite celebrities that were in a frat/sorority.

Celebrity Greek Life 1

Michael Jordan

Arguably the best basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan wasn’t just practicing his free throws in college. He’s also an alumnus of Omega Psi Phi (Psi Delta chapter), where he spent time with fraternity brothers before leaving the University of North Carolina. Jordan chose to join the NBA a year before graduation, but he left his school with a championship ring in hand.

Celebrity Greek Life 2

Katie Couric

Before she was America’s beloved journalist, Katie Couric divided her college life between Delta Delta Delta (Beta Sigma chapter) and the University of Virginia’s newspaper. Also known as Tri-Delta, the sorority was the first to write its traditions without men’s help. For a fiercely independent journalist like Couric, it was probably a good fit.

Celebrity Greek Life 3

Brad Pitt

Movie stars are also part of celebrity Greek life, and Brad Pitt is one of the most notable examples. During his time at University of Missouri, Pitt joined the Sigma Chi fraternity (Xi Xi chapter). He was part of the school’s Homecoming Steering Committee, which plans the annual Homecoming game and associated activities. He also used his acting chops in a few fraternity-related events.

Celebrity Greek Life 4

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Before she was one of the funniest people on television, Julia Louis-Dreyfus studied theater at Northwestern University. Here, she joined Delta Gamma, a historic sorority that raises thousands of dollars for veterans and the visually impaired.

Celebrity Greek Life 5

Steven Spielberg

The director of Jaws and Jurassic Park is another unlikely candidate for fraternity life. Spielberg studied English at California State University, Long Beach, and joined the Theta Chi fraternity during this time. Today, Theta Chi has more than 151 chapters in North America, and it does philanthropic work for organizations like the Children’s Miracle Network. 

Celebrity Greek Life 6

Kate Spade

When most people think “fashion designer”, the word “sorority” probably doesn’t come to mind. Celebrities that were in a frat/sorority tend to break the mold, and Kate Spade is no exception. During her time at Arizona State University, Spade joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and graduated with a journalism degree.
