At the most basic level, fraternities and sororities offer your student a small group of friends amid a larger university environment – fellow students that your student can bond with and share experiences with. But the benefits of fraternity and sorority life are quite far-reaching. Fraternities and sororities provide students with opportunities for personal and professional growth. They promote enhanced academic achievement, leadership development, and increased participation in community service through philanthropic activities. Fraternities and sororities instill values of cooperation, mutual respect, and selflessness that will help to establish a pattern of lifelong service and continued success.
The fraternity and sorority community offers a variety of leadership opportunities to prepare students for future careers. Members are eligible for elected or appointed positions and committee participation within the chapter. Each chapter is self-governing and relies on the special talents of its members for successful management. Members may choose to become involved in the leadership of one of the governing councils or the Order of Omega Greek Honor Society. Conferences hosted on campus, regionally and nationally, provide members with further opportunities to explore the realm of leadership.
