Fraternities and sororities play an important role on the Grand Valley State University campus as well as throughout the West Michigan community and beyond. Scholarship, service, friendship, cultural appreciation, and brotherhood/sisterhood are the common fraternal principles founded by each of our Greek-lettered organizations. By focusing on these fraternal principles, one can expect both a positive collegiate and Greek experience.
Being part of a Greek organization will provide ample opportunities for you to participate in activities that will enhance your personal development, promote academics, and advance your leadership skills. We encourage you to take a look at our community and become a part of our rich traditions!
