Welcome

Welcome to the Edward Waters College Office of Student Activities. At Edward Waters, you have the opportunity to meet new people and participate in many activities. As you explore the wide range of interests and activities that are available on our campus, we encourage you to consider our Greek Life Community as a part of your college experience. Being a member of a fraternity or sorority offers life changing experiences and opportunities. While each organization is unique in its own way, they are all similar in that they all offer a brotherhood or sisterhood that fosters deep friendships and life long bonds. Organizations also offer opportunities for leadership that prepares students for future career opportunities. Some aspects of fraternity and sorority life include:  Academic Excellence  Community Service Participation  Leadership Development  Networking Opportunities  Campus Involvement This brief guide will give you a snapshot of the fraternities and sororities at Edward Waters College as well as membership requirements. We hope that you enjoy your time here at Edward Waters College and we encourage your participation in our Greek Life Community. Page 2Page
