Greek organizations have been held as a social and service outlet for students at Gustavus for over 100 years. In 1904, the first Greek organizatiatons were founded; two of which still exist today. By 1930, there were fifteen organizations on campus.

On April 25, 1988, all Greek organizations were banned from Gustavus. After spending nearly five years underground, fraternities and sororities were once again recognized as student organizations on campus. During the reinstatement process, fraternities and sororities agreed to abide by the college's stipulations, and the newly instated Inter-Greek Senate's constititution.

For generations, the Greek system has been a staple in the Gustavus community. Today, there are twelve Greek organizations recognized by the Gustavus campus; six sororities and six fraternities. Almost one-fifth of the Gustavus student body is Greek.
