BENEFITS

Why participate in a fraternity or sorority? Lifelong friendships, a full social calendar and more:

BIGGER NETWORK

As a member of a Greek organization, you will forge connections not just with current chapter members, but with a large network of former members as well. A fraternity or sorority is not just a four-year college experience; it's a lifetime involvement. 

Fraternities and sororities raise money for national and local charities on a regular basis
IMPROVED GRADES

Numerous national studies show that students who are active in a fraternity or sorority generally have higher grade point averages than the general student body. Greek organization members also graduate at a higher rate. 

WRIGHT HOUSE

THE CENTER FOR GREEK LIFE ON CAMPUS

Wright House, 119 Wright St., is designated as the fraternity and sorority house and provides office space for Greek Life staff, conference rooms and chapter suites. There is a full kitchen and lounge area. The Greek community uses Wright House for recruitment events, mixers, meetings, and for hanging out or studying.
