Our Mission

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life commits to the holistic development and success of all students, the cultivation of inclusive spaces and communities, and the fostering of meaningful relationships and lifelong learning.

Marshall University has been the host of fraternities and sororities for 97 years. Today, the community has over 500 students holding membership in 17 organizations. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) focuses on scholarship, unity, service and philanthropy, and leadership. Several of Marshall’s most distinguished graduates are members of fraternities and sororities.

Our Values

  • Scholarship – Scholastic standards are a vital part of the fraternal experience. Our organizations recognize that academics are the reason why their members attend college. Therefore, our community is committed to academic achievement through chapter support, individual accountability, incentive programs, and utilization of campus resources.
  • Unity – Sororities and fraternities provide a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood through retreats, social interactions, programming with other chapters and campus entities, parent events, alumni activities, and continued practice of ritual.
  • Service and Philanthropy – Sorority and fraternity members are committed to giving back and serving the community through mutually beneficial experiences.
  • Leadership – Members believe that success for the individual and the chapter is dependent on developing skills and personal qualities that enhance the growth and potential of each individual member.
