How will joining a Greek Organization help me succeed academically?
All Greek Organizations have a minimum GPA requirement to join and help members to maintain a certain GPA to stay active members. They set aside times each week for members to study and offer a strong support system to tutor other members. Thirty percent of Greek members were on either the Dean’s List or President’s List.
Joining a Fraternity or Sorority carries a financial commitment. Each chapter is self-supporting through dues paid by members. Upon joining, they agree to pay dues and fees while in school to maintain their membership. The amount of dues varies by each organization and is explained thoroughly during the recruitment process. A lot of Greeks pay their dues with what they make working 8 hours a week for minimum wage.
What kinds of Community Service Projects do Greeks participate in?
Each year our Greek students give thousands of hours of service to the community. Each group supports a philanthropy through their national organization and participates in local projects. Some groups have bake-sales and fund-raisers so they can donate the proceeds to charity while some groups help Habitat for Humanity build houses. They read to children at the local elementary schools, raise money through Songfest for charity, and hold pet adoption drives for Hope For Animals.
