Though Final Clubs, fraternities, and sororities are long-standing staples of the Harvard social scene, their presence is anything but static. Last year, sorority Alpha Phi set down its roots in Cambridge, while fraternity Kappa Sigma reinstated its Harvard chapter last week after an eighty-year hiatus. FM digs into the archives to create a chronology of Harvard’s dynamic Greek life.
Over eight decades after Kappa Sigma left Harvard, the Gamma-Eta Chapter was re-established earlier this month.
You don’t want to lose your nice winter coat after you leave it in a huge pile, so it’s about time that you start thinking about what you’re going to wear out to the Owl in the snow. Thus, Flyby presents: The Fracket.

The quick and dirty about what's been going on around the Ancient Eight (and other schools too). Students at Columbia have been over-indulging on Nutella lately, and it’s turned into quite the hot topic. While reports originally claimed the university spent $5000 in a week on the stuff, the figure has now been reduced to a more modest $2500. Apparently students have been filling cups full of Nutella, or just taking full jars back to their rooms, meaning around 100lbs was disappearing each week. Lucky for students, there are no plans to take away the delicious hazelnut treat any time in the future, leaving us at Flyby extremely jealous but also kind of relieved we don’t have easy access to unlimited Nutella. That 100lbs has to go somewhere, guys…
Following this month’s spring rush season, Harvard’s three fraternities have accepted a handful of new pledges from a competitive pool of would-be brothers.
Guess what? A brand new exclusive social organization is arriving on campus this semester! With the impending arrival of women's fraternity Alpha Phi, we at Flyby thought we'd let you know what exactly makes this national organization distinctive.
FM sends the weekend at Sigma Chi and in cages in Winthrop Dining Hall. The Harvard social scene has never felt so...classy.
After more than 10 percent of Harvard’s female freshmen, sophomores, and juniors chose to rush sororities for the past two years, Harvard’s female Greek organizations plan to bring a fourth sorority to campus.
