These records contain files of fraternities and sororities that were active at Wayne State University between 1932 to 2000. The bulk of the records are from the 1950s and 1960s. Some organizations were active when the university were known as the College of the City of Detroit, Wayne University and currently Wayne State University. Documents include petitions for chapters, chapter installation materials, initiation programs, information booklets, handbooks, constitutions, membership rolls, registration forms, bulletins, yearbooks, newsletters, pledge manuals, directories, bylaws, event programs, speech outlines, committee reports, conference programs, banquet programs.

This collection offers a spotlight on a very important aspect of student life at what is now known as Wayne State University. Some of the materials spotlight particular aspects of student life, shown in honor societies dedicated to particular disciplines, such as international debate, education, engineering amongst others. Further some of these sororities and fraternities were dedicated to supporting students from particular identity groups such as Jewish students, Lutheran students. These groups have promoted leadership and social opportunities at Wayne State.
