Fraternities & Sororities text with smiling fraternity and sorority members

WHY JOIN A FRATERNITY OR SORORITY?

It’s simple! Your chances of succeeding in college increase significantly when you get involved on campus. Getting involved can give you a well-rounded education, both inside and outside the classroom. Strengthen your academic career. Develop leadership skills. Serve others. Build positive relationships that will last a lifetime.

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

Your priority will always be the hours you spend inside the classroom and doing homework. However, it’s also important to make the most of the time you spend outside the classroom. Make it count through campus and community involvement. Fraternities and sororities work to promote academic excellence and provide you a supportive community of peers.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Fraternities and sororities are built on a foundation of timeless values. Translating these values into action on campus and in the community is the essence of leadership. Being a member of a fraternity or sorority chapter can provide you with additional opportunities for thinking critically, practicing teamwork and improving your sense of self-awareness. This is leadership development in its truest form.

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

We believe in you. You have the ability to positively change our world. Whether serving with an agency in Boise or building a school in Jamaica, members of fraternities and sororities realize that much is expected of those to whom much is given. Improving the lives of others is why we’re here.
