Fraternity | Sorority Life Councils
Fraternity & Sorority membership can foster many helpful skills and attributes in a student’s life. Membership can provide leadership skills, academic achievement, athletic participation, social outlets, character development, as well as interpersonal skills. With the combination of commuter students, long distances from family members and record numbers of first-time college students, Fraternity & Sorority membership can add a much-needed sense of belonging and stability to students’ lives. With a network of over 10 million Fraternity & Sorority members, students would have increased opportunities to post-graduation job placement and connections to their desired career path.
