Having active Greek organizations on campus not only helps the school but the surrounding communities as well because each Greek organization has a non-profit organization that they work closely with. For example, Zeta Phi Beta does things to benefit the National Education Foundation, and Alpha Phi Alpha works closely with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentor partnership. So, regardless of whether you want to help the University, the community, or yourself, joining a fraternity or sorority will expand your sense of who you are and what you can do to change the world.
But, joining a Greek organization is not all about community service all the time. The fraternities and sororities sponsor activities and parties to give the students a chance to relax. In fact, the Greeks throw awesome parties that leave many of the residence halls empty, and they’re great places to meet new people. In general, Greek life is an intricate part of campus that students respect and enjoy.
