WikiProject Fraternities and Sororities is a WikiProject dedicated to improving articles related to fraternities and sororities, in addition to associated umbrella organizations. Discussion concerning the project should be held on the project's talk page.

The Watchlist... is intended to list all notable groups.

How you can help

  1. Write articles! Review the Watchlist for missing articles - a Red link shows you where a group's article is missing, either because it has not yet been written or it had been written, poorly, and was deleted.
  2. If a group is missing, add it! Follow these naming rules, and where a name is ambiguous, offer a unique name.
  3. Improve existing articles: edit for clarity and more 'neutral' language, to remove "promotional" or "Peacock" wording, and add valid reference citations.
  4. You can review other Good articles, listed below, as examples and templates.
  5. Where missing, offer Fair Use scans of crests (add a note to the Talk page, with a link, if you don't know how to upload). Add citations: to university websites, to larger newspapers and magazines, or to books. Fill in or add an Infobox. Add a list of chapters.
  6. Always, follow these rules to ensure notability.
  7. Watch for Fraternity articles that get tagged as "Articles listed for deletion", and vote as you see fit. These debates generally last 1 to 2 weeks.
  8. Follow Recent Changes... to Project articles to look for vandalism, or to learn what other editors are doing.
