Why Join?

Joining a Fraternity at SVSU can make the university feel like home. Through social events and chapter activities, members become friends with other students throughout campus and other organizations, making the college experience more memorable and exciting. Throughout Greek life, members become campus leaders by setting positive examples and being friendly to other students and helping them feel even more welcomed to life at SVSU. Being in Greek Life also helps members succeed in their courses. Brothers and sisters are always in the library, welcoming others to study together and help each other stay motivated. Library hours and a minimum GPA of 2.5 are required to stay an active member and aid in keeping members on track with their successful futures. Not only does Greek life enhance social and educational life, but members are given unique opportunities to give back to the community in fun and exciting ways as well as chances to network with faculty, career services, outside companies and so much more. These are great ways to build a resume, gain experience and stand out in future endeavors.

Greek Life can benefit its members in so many amazing ways. All you have to do is join and you can gain friendships and unique memories that will last a lifetime.
