Why do people join fraternities and sororities?

Fraternities and sororities enable students to meet many people through social events, service projects, recruitment and intramural events. Students quickly become connected to the university and tapped into the available resources. Joining a Greek organization is one way to make Ball State seem smaller, friendlier and easier to handle – it gives you a place and people to count on. Fraternities and sororities strive to enhance your college experience by challenging you to achieve academic excellence, develop your leadership potential and give back to the local community. Membership in a fraternity or sorority is a lifelong commitment; relationships created during college last well beyond graduation.
