VALUES GAINED THROUGH GREEK LIFE
The foundation for the Greek system is Scholarship. Because we are in college for education, Greeks stress the importance of scholastic achievement in many ways. Although each fraternity and sorority has different scholastic requirements, all require a minimum GPA to join. Most groups also require study hours each week. Several groups even have tutoring programs, education closests, scholastic awards, and special access to campus resources.
The greatest attribute to be gained by a fraternity or a sorority is leadership. Through active membership, you will acquire the qualities of a leader: confidence, independence, communication skills, and the ability to function as an individual for the advancement of the entire group.
One of the primary goals of the Greek system is to better the community through service. Some of these activities include: food drives, working with elderly and/or children, raising funds for cancer patients, and much more.
For all the hard work that Greeks do throughout the year, there is always a reward. This is where the social interaction steps in. Greeks expand socially through formal and informal dances, TGIF's, meetings, banquets, service projects and more. The social interaction allows Greeks to meet new people, make new friends, and celebrate achievements. Contrary to popular belief, social interaction is not the sole reason for the Greek system's existence. However, it is a vital part of expanding the Greek experience.
