Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at Indiana State University is to serve as an advocate and resource for the fraternity and sorority community. We provide our students with opportunities for personal growth, leadership development, and support in their pursuit of academic excellence that adds value to the students’ holistic collegiate experience.

 

Fraternities and sororities are meant to encourage leadership growth, academic excellence, and pride in campus activities. Indiana State University's fraternities and sororities are no exception to this rule and serve the campus community through leadership positions, active involvement in on-campus activities, a strong dedication to academics, and engaging in philanthropic and community service endeavors that help maintain a strong country and community.

The bond formed during the collegiate years between fraternity brothers and sorority sisters do not fade after graduation.  Membership in a fraternity or sorority is for a lifetime and opens up opportunities for students to connect with alumni and other fraternity and sorority members across the country. A connection is formed based on the traditions of each fraternity and sorority that creates a bond with other individuals, even those whom you have yet to meet.
