In order from tamest to rowdiest: Chi Psi, Deek, TD. There are A LOT of Chi Psi members on student government. All three frequently throw parties.
All of the frats are underground btw because they're technically banned but talk to some athletes and you'll hear about them.

Formally speaking, Amherst abolished fraternities and sororities some two decades ago, and the College does not tolerate frats on campus. In reality, you can still find a few “underground” frats (but not sororities) that are very much alive and kicking. The general public of Amherst students doesn’t mind their existence, and in fact, these frats usually organize good parties, which are by no means exclusive to frat brothers and their entourages. Like frats at other colleges, being a member takes up considerable amounts of time and dedication, and in return will give you a social center to which other people will inevitably gravitate. Getting into one of the frats is not as grueling and humiliating as getting into a fraternity at a school where frats hold substantial social sway, like UMass, for example, although a few Amherst students have actually pledged UMass frats (ensuing with severe disciplinary repercussions from the College!).
Frat brothers at Amherst walk in the shadows in regards to publicizing their memberships and the goings on inside their frats. To illustrate how repudiating the College is toward frats, merely specifying the names of the existing frats is too perilous to do. The surest and only way to learn all the nitty-gritty details about the frats on campus is through word of mouth, and anyone who expresses interest is sure to be met with more than adequate response. The frats are always on the lookout for more members.
