Join a Sorority or Fraternity

Is Greek life for you?

When choosing a sorority or fraternity, you should ask yourself whether the organization will help you grow academically, personally, and professionally—or whether it will hinder your college experience.

It is your responsibility to determine in advance whether or not you are able to balance the various commitments and expectations of a sorority or fraternity.

Choosing the right sorority or fraternity

Ask yourself these questions before choosing a sorority or fraternity:

  • Do you identify with the organization’s mission statement and purpose?
  • What are the expectations of membership?
  • Are you able to meet the financial obligations?
  • Is the organization involved in the community?
  • What are the chapter activities?
  • Who are the organization’s active alumni or chapter advisors?
