Welcome to Grand Valley State University
Find your home, away from home!
On behalf of the Grand Valley State University Fraternity & Sorority Life community, Welcome Lakers!
When students find "a home away from home", their college experience is enhanced. For many students this home is establish within organizations of incredible brothers and sisters, and offices like Student Life.
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!
All the best,
Chris McQueen, M.Ed
Associate Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life
