Biggest Fraternities and Sororities in America

It's easy to associate fraternities and sororities with only housing for its members and fun social events, but these organizations offer much more than that. One of the main benefits of joining one of these "greek" institutions is networking. The bond one makes with fellow brothers or sisters can last a lifetime, reach international levels and can even assist in climbing the corporate ladder after graduation. In fact, about a quarter of America's biggest CEOs have been members of a frat or sorority, according to an article published by Forbes in 2003. What's more, according to an article on the Century Foundation, Cornell's official website once stated that while about 2% of Americans are involved in fraternities, "80 percent of Fortune 500 executives, 76 percent of U.S. senators and congressmen, 85 percent of Supreme Court justices, and all but two presidents since 1825 have been fraternity men." We can see why the size of the organization is an important factor when deciding which one to apply for. Here are some of America's biggest fraternities and sororities according to greekrank.com.
