Do you want to hear the top Philippine fraternities and sororities? Both fraternities and sororities are very popular in the Philippines. In fact, there are over 200 registered fraternities and sororities in the Philippines. Each group has their own mission and vision. Some frats want to recruit undergraduates and train them to be tough, elite citizens who will eventually take a spot in the government system. Others choose members in order to field a better sports team and quality of life. Above all, fraternities and sororities encourage their members to improve their way of living and to become the best version of themselves that can contribute for the society and nation’s development.
