Fraternity and Sorority Life at NYU features programs to advance the knowledge and mission of our community and develop students to become better people and leaders.

Dance Marathon (NYDM)

NYDM is NYU's 12-Hour Dance Marathon benefiting The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation. As one of the biggest events on campus, the dance marathon raises thousands of dollars each year. NYDM is organized with an executive board that works directly with Fraternity and Sorority Life staff.

FSL Leadership Retreat

This program serves as the initial training and leadership development program for all new chapter presidents, council presidents, and executive boards. Led by professional staff, students leave campus for two days to reflect on and develop leadership skills.


Gateways is a comprehensive required orientation for all new members of the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. After members cross or join, they learn about anti-hazing policies, become better leaders, and develop diversity and inclusion priorities.
