We believe that membership in fraternities and sororities offers the opportunity to make a large campus feel a little smaller. Membership in one of our organizations will help to connect a student to new opportunities and new friends. Membership can create a sense of belonging and community. Fraternities and sororities consistently early higher GPAs than their unaffiliated undergraduate counterparts. One of the most special parts of membership is the ability to make connections that will last a lifetime. Fraternity and sorority members remain active university alumni and contribute to campus from their first day on campus until long after they graduate!
