What is a fraternity or a sorority?

A fraternity is a group of men or women bound together by friendship, brotherhood or sisterhood, and common goals and aspirations. Women's fraternities are most often referred to as sororities. The members that form the fraternity share their friendship, efforts, and knowledge. Their common experience builds ties that last a lifetime. Though there are many different fraternities, they all share common founding principles that are of interest to any college man or woman. Fraternities endeavor to enhance your educational experience by emphasizing intellectual, interpersonal, and social development. The ideals of lifelong friendship, sound education, campus and community service, and social interaction are what fraternity members strive to live by every day. 

Fraternity & Sorority Life Basics
Scholarship is the first priority for Greeks at PSU. Members are encouraged to strive for excellence through scholarship incentive programs and workshops stressing the importance of academics. Greeks achieving academic excellence are eligible for membership in Order of Omega, a national Greek honor society. Greek members are rewarded for their academic achievements and given many opportunities to interact with faculty members throughout the year. Each chapter maintains internal academic standards that all members are expected to achieve.

Greek membership offers a variety of positions to sharpen leadership skills. Greeks can be found in many organizations on campus, many holding the highest leadership positions. Greek membership catapults students in to these positions through experience shared by older members. Involvement and active participation in activities enable Greeks to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the fast-paced job market of today.

Pittsburg State University Greeks support a strong tradition of service to our campus and community. Each year Greeks donate thousands of dollars and, most importantly, thousands of hours to various charities. Each chapter focuses on national philanthropies, but also donates services to several local agencies. Because of the strength in numbers and organizational qualities, Greeks achieve great success in aiding the community.

One of the goals of every Greek chapter at PSU is to encourage personal growth and development through social contact. Joining the Greek community brings along with it a great opportunity for social interaction. The Greek community provides you with the opportunity to expand your horizons. You will be meeting people from diverse backgrounds at gatherings that range from intramural events to run-outs (mixers) between sororities and fraternities. The social skills and relationships gained throughout these experiences will be valuable long after graduation from PSU.
