How much time does fraternity or sorority membership require?

Like most other worthwhile extracurricular activities, how much you get out of your Greek membership is related to how much you put into it. The time commitments vary from chapter to chapter.

New members attend a variety of activities to meet other chapter members, learn about the organization’s history and values and develop leadership skills. Each chapter has a weekly chapter meeting, fundraising events, community service projects, educational programs and other events that members are expected to attend.

These events are planned in advance to allow members time for studying, involvement in other organizations, work and other activities. Time spent at chapter events ensures you are getting the most out of the organization.

Whether it is planning a social event, a community service project, or regular weekly meetings, fraternity and sorority members have learned to balance their time with other commitments like homework, relationships and jobs. Commuting students specifically gain a home-away-from-home that enables them to be part of Ball State life. Be sure to ask questions regarding time commitments during recruitment.
