Q: What is the difference between a local and a national sorority or fraternity?

A: National sororities and fraternities are part of nation-wide associations. National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) oversees all 26 national sororities affiliated and Northamerican InterFraternal Council (NIFC) oversees every national fraternity. Each national group has a national organization that they answer' to in order to ensure the business aspects of their chapter are being accomplished. These national organizations also have larger alumni and alumnae populations throughout the entire nation. Local sororities and fraternities are solely based throughout the Stanislaus State community. They are not affiliated with NPC or NIFC and are not overseen by any higher association. Their alumnae are locally based and have a smaller population of men and women.
