If your child is interested in joining a fraternity or sorority, we encourage you to be an active participant in helping them reach a final decision. Since fraternity and sorority membership is a life-long commitment, it is not a decision to be made lightly. Consider asking your son or daughter some of these questions:
What is expected of fraternity/sorority members?
How will membership affect my son’s/daughter’s academics?
What leadership opportunities are available to students as both new members and active members?
Does the chapter perform hands-on community service? If so, how often?
What are the expenses associated with membership? How does this vary as a new member?
What type of member is the chapter looking for?
What values does this organization promote?
Is the organization officially recognized by the College? If not, why is this the case?
