As you may have read and seen already, joining a fraternity can reap many benefits in a young manâ€™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 fraternityâ€™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.
