Greek Life at St. Mary’s University strives to empower members of Greek-letter organizations to excel, promote, and preserve the four principles of brotherhood/sisterhood, leadership, scholarship, and service. Together, Greeks offer an environment which supports and encourages the living out of ideals contained in each chapter creed, holding no tolerance for behavior unbecoming of the highest standards of the mission of the University. Greek leaders are students of character who set examples of leadership on the entire campus. We invite all students to take part in the Greek experience. The influences of Greek Life will take you beyond your higher education experience. Take the challenge and you will realize that membership will influence you
