Foundations of Fraternity and Sorority Life

Fraternity and sorority life is founded with four main principles in mind. They are service, scholarship, leadership, and lifelong friends. At UNG, fraternity and sorority community embraces these principles.

Service

One of the most rewarding aspects of fraternity/sorority membership is the ability to become involved with community service and philanthropic projects. Each year the fraternity and sorority community contributes many hours and dollars to local and national charities. We acknowledge the responsibility to serve and benefit others by volunteering their time to the community.  Last year the fraternity and sorority community volunteered over 10,000 hours and donated over $90,000. Working together on these philanthropic projects and events not only benefit worthy causes, but also fosters personal growth and greater unity among our fraternity men and sorority women.

Scholarship

Academics are the most important aspect of college life. At UNG, the primary goal for students is to successfully complete their academic requirements. Our fraternities and sororities pride themselves on academic success. Each chapter offers a wide range of support and assistance to their members including incentives and awards, time management and study skills workshops, and tutoring and mentoring programs. UNG requires a minimum 2.5 GPA and 12 completed hours (at UNG) for participation in recruitment. 

Leadership

Fraternity and Sorority Life provides countless opportunities for further exploration and development of leadership skills. Members engage in a wide variety of activities that develop abilities such as teamwork, dedication, loyalty, and cooperation. Fraternity men and sorority women serve as leaders on campus within many student organizations as well as officers within their individual chapters and as executive members of governing councils; within the fraternity/sorority community alone, we have over 300 leadership positions available for men and women to take advantage of. Joining the fraternity/sorority community at UNG can open a vast range of leadership possibilities and enable a student to experience profound personal development and growth.

Lifelong Friendships

One of the most cherished aspects of being involved in a fraternity or sorority are the friendships that are made with men/women who share your interests and your values. Involvement in a fraternal organizations give members an opportunity to expand your circle of friends because brotherhood/sisterhood is the foundation of the fraternity and sorority experience. It combines the concept of individualism within the framework of mutual cooperation. As a fraternity/sorority member, you will form friendships unlike any found in other organizations.
