Watch any movie or television show about college life and you're going to see frat boys and sorority girls, but the media might have given you the wrong idea about what Greek life is all about. Academic excellence is an important part of being Greek. To attend recruitment, you must have a minimum 2.0 GPA. Statistics show that Greek students earn higher grades and hold more leadership positions compared to non-Greeks on campus.
The Greek community also does great things for the community, such as fundraisers for great causes and volunteering their time. Plus, Greeks have a built-in support system and social network, which is extremely helpful especially for freshmen and transfer students.
