Four Black Fraternities Make 2012 College Ranking’s ‘Top Fraternities’ List



Newsweek and The Daily Beast have released the 2012 College Ranking list for Top Fraternities. These fraternities have been acknowledged for exemplifying the true meaning of brotherhood and service.

Greek life often receives a bad rap with hazing occurrences seemingly on the rise.

There are a total of 75 fraternities in the North-American Interfraternity Conference. In a list of 25 fraternities, College Rankings honored four black fraternities in the National Pan-Hellenic Council.

The list of NPHC fraternities that made the list includes Phi Beta Sigma, ranked 24; Iota Phi Theta, ranked 20; Kappa Alpha Psi, ranked 12; and Alpha Phi Alpha, ranked 10.

College Rankings considered a number of factors to create list. The Daily Beast and Newsweek considered the number of alumni who are currently members of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as the alumni, if any, who became president.

Both publications used the most recent public filing to check the amount of money each fraternity’s non-profit fund donated to 501(c)(3) organization.

Check out Newsweek’s and The Daily Beast’s 2012 College Rankings List for Top Fraternities below.
