Welcome Bob Dudolski Assistant Dean of Students Hello and Welcome to Texas State University!

We are excited for you to join our fraternity and sorority community! Greek Life is a vibrant and important part of our campus. The administrators, faculty and staff members of Texas State University look to the members of our fraternity and sorority community as leaders among leaders. This distinction as leaders also comes with responsibility and accountability in all that we do. I challenge you to seek out leadership positions across our campus and in particular, I encourage you to consider membership in one of our outstanding fraternities and then pursue one of the hundreds of leadership positions offered within our own Greek community.

This is a great time to become a member of the fraternity and sorority community here at Texas State University! We are in the midst of many positive changes to our community including new resources and staffing to support our fraternities and sororities as well as providing new opportunities for our student leaders to excel both within and outside of the classroom. As fraternity and sorority members we are charged with the responsibility of adapting to an ever-changing environment. We are challenged to design and redesign programs to meet the needs of the changing face of our local and global communities. We hope you will consider becoming a part of our outstanding fraternity and sorority community to be a part of the new leadership opportunities we are able to provide. We are seeking bright leaders to help develop and implement change and all that it entails for our community, because at one time “tradition” was a new idea. To quote former Senator Bob Dole: “The best way to cope with change is to help create it.” We hope you will join us!

Bob Dudolski Assistant Dean of Students

Fraternity Recruitment

Message from IFC Vice-President of Recruitment, Sean Cotter Congratulations on your acceptance to Texas State University-San Marcos! I hope you are as excited as we are about the upcoming Fall 2013 semester. Fraternity life at Texas State is stronger than ever and we are encouraging you to be a part of it. Members of fraternal organizations are woven into almost every aspect of college life here at Texas State, including the Associated Student Government, Athletics, and the Dean’s List. Fraternity leaders strive to be the best in every field of study and activity. Academics are the most important aspect of each fraternity on campus. After all, the primary purpose for attending a university is to further one’s education. That is why the active chapter GPA along with the average new member GPA has been set by Interfraternity Council (IFC) and its member chapters at a minimum of 2.25. This requirement is in an effort to reinforce the importance of academics in the fraternity community. Community service and philanthropy are also major components of fraternity life in San Marcos. Every Greek organization has at least one, and in most cases many, philanthropic organizations chapters have committed to working with assist in creating a better communities both locally and nationally. By joining a fraternity, you have opportunities to be involved in life changing events, as well as making lifelong friendships. Personally, joining a fraternity was the best nonacademic decisions I have made since coming to Texas State. Membership has given me a better understanding of responsibility, an improved grasp of time management and I have learned how to respect and work well with others. Finally, I feel that I grew up more in my first semester as a member of a fraternity than I did in four years I attended high school. If you are looking for a great college experience, as well as a way to improve your grades, and make lifelong friendships, I encourage you to go through formal recruitment with the IFC. If you have any questions please feel free to seek me out in the IFC Office, 4th Floor, LBJ Student Center or contact me via email at scc77@txstate.edu.


As you may have read and seen already, joining a fraternity can reap many benefits in a young man’s life. Not only will you meet an array of different people and have brothers for life, but you will also experience the different aspect of what being a fraternity man is all about. One of those particular experiences is the ability to serve others. Each of the 14 fraternities at Texas State was founded on the principles of Scholarship, Brotherhood, Leadership, and Service. Service is not something to be taken lightly; it is an action. We want you to understand the purpose behind service: to experience helping others and giving back to a community that loves you and Texas State. Joining a fraternity can mold you into becoming a leader. Giving back to your community can be one of the most gratifying experiences in your collegiate life. Each year all of our Texas State fraternities participate with their national philanthropy through events to raise awareness and money for a specific organization. Each fraternity’s respective website contains information about their national philanthropy. We encourage you to research each of these. This past year, each of our fraternities participated in the largest community service project at Texas State; Bobcat Build. This event is a standing tradition at Texas State and provides an avenue for all Texas State students to give back to the local San Marcos community. The members of the Community Involvement Committee would like to congratulate you on your acceptance to Texas State and hope that you will consider joining a fraternity. Together we can make an impact on campus and our community.

ΣAE is North America’s largest social fraternity.

Our creed The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe. -John Walter Wayland
