OurMISSION Mission OUR Our Mission The mission of the office of Fraternity & Sorority (FSL) Life is to advance and support the fraternal community at Texas Tech University (TTU) by providing opportunities for personal growth, leadership development, civic engagement and academic success. The office serves as both an advocate and resource for all students involved in fraternity and sorority life at TTU. 2


Our Community Values SCHOLARSHIP.

Texas Tech University fraternities and sororities strive for academic excellence and developing the scholastic achievement of their members. The all-Greek grade point average is consistently higher than the all-university grade point average. To help members succeed academically, fraternities and sororities have well-established scholarship programs. These programs include resources, such as study hall sessions, time management workshops, academics advisors, tutoring programs and more. Fraternities and sororities reward high academic achievement in many ways, such as scholarships, awards and recognition banquets. There are also all-Greek honor societies to recognize the academic achievements of fraternity and sorority members.

LEADERSHIP.

The community offers numerous opportunities to gain valuable leadership experience. Fraternities and sororities also encourage their members to become involved in numerous campus activities. This enables their members to learn leadership skills by being involved in a large, multifaceted organization. Today’s employers and graduate schools search for the type of individual who not only excelled in academics, but is also well-rounded through active involvement on campus. The Greek community offers students an excellent opportunity to meet and exceed these standards set by employers and graduate schools.

BROTHERHOOD & SISTERHOOD.

Brotherhood and sisterhood are the foundations of the fraternity and sorority experience. Every individual in a fraternity or sorority contributes to this value. Students will form friendships unlike any they will experience in other campus organizations. Brotherhood or sisterhood is not conformity. No fraternity or sorority at Tech is made up of members who are exactly alike. The FSL community benefits from the rich diversity of the Tech campus, which is what makes the fraternity or sorority experience so valuable. By interacting with people from various cultural, religious and racial backgrounds, members are better prepared to face the challenges of life after college. Joining a fraternity or sorority will enable members to have a richer and more rewarding experience as Red Raiders. The fraternity or sorority will become a home away from home and students will find that brotherhood or sisterhood extends well beyond their undergraduate years.

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT.

Community service and philanthropy play an important role in the Texas Tech University fraternities and sororities. These projects give students a chance to contribute and give back to Texas Tech University and Lubbock. All fraternities and sororities have national philanthropic organizations that they support locally. Fraternities and sororities also collaborate in community service projects that benefit local charities throughout the year.

SOCIAL JUSTICE.

Texas Tech University Fraternity and Sorority chapters offer diverse experiences for their members. Chapters engage in critical conversations about inclusion, diversity and challenging inequalities by exposing members to opportunities they may not otherwise experience. The community welcomes all students to join our variety of chapters, which provide a vast array of opportunities to help each individual student succeed at Texas Tech University.

Clay R. Warren Risk Education

Education

Clay’s Story

In September of 2002, Clay R. Warren was traveling back to Lubbock from a fraternity-sponsored event when the driver of his vehicle fell asleep at the wheel. Clay died due to injuries sustained from the car accident. Clay was a vivacious young man who loved life, his family, Texas Tech University and his fraternity. He had only been at Texas Tech for five weeks before he passed away.

Why Risk Education?

After Clay’s death his parents, Freada and Mark, became advocates of providing risk management education to other college students. Their message is simple. No parent or loved one should have to go through what they went through. The Warren’s teamed up with Senator Robert Duncan, the former Chancellor of Texas Tech University to create legislation that would require risk management education for all student organizations in the state of Texas. The early efforts of the Clay R. Warren Risk Management Education were created in a collaboration with the Fraternity & Sorority Life staff in the fall of 2006.

CRW Risk Education Summit

CRW Risk Education Summit is hosted each spring to equip organization leadership with tools and skills focused around prevention models, problem identification, response, self-reporting, accountability, and the Ladder of Risk.

Leadership Development Education Leadership Speaker Series

All members of the fraternity and sorority community are engaged twice a year in the Leadership Speaker Series. Active and new members from each council are required to attend and engage in relevant and timely topical information.

FSL Leadership Summit

Leadership Summit is a three-day institute style learning experience for fraternity and sorority organization presidents on Texas Tech’s campus. Drawing on elements from programs like UIFI®, LeaderShape®, iLead® and other leadership academies across the country – TTU FSL seeks to elevate our current community through a focus on leadership development, community-building and critical thinking skills. Leadership Summit is designed to bring leaders in the fraternity and sorority life community together, working towards common goals of helping the community at large and ensure the success of the Fraternity & Sorority community.

HOW DO I JOIN?

During each semester, chapters in the Multicultural Greek Council host programs, community service opportunities and tabling events, during which students will have the opportunity to interact with different fraternities and sororities in the council. It is encouraged that interested students utilize those opportunities to engage with the current chapter members to discuss the specific processes for any organization they are interested in potentially joining.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All MGC organizations have national membership guidelines that they must follow.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of joining a fraternity or sorority?

Membership in a fraternity or sorority is a life-changing experience for those who choose to join. Chapter members develop a unique bond of brotherhood and sisterhood, while sharing their values and goals. The FSL community values scholarship, brotherhood/sisterhood, community service and leadership. These values steer students to form life-long friendships with peers, work vigorously in their classwork, give back to those in need and gain experience and responsibilities that they can carry over into the working world.

Will joining a fraternity or sorority effect my academics?

Sororities and fraternities serve as a great resource for students academically through study hours and tutoring programs. Most fraternities and sororities have a GPA requirement for initial membership and to remain active members in the organization. These requirements are often higher than the general campus average. Organizations often regulate study hours, maintain resource files, reward those who do well academically and help those experiencing difficulties. The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life releases a grade report with each individual chapter ranking cumulative grade point average every fall and spring.

Are chapter members required to live in fraternity/sorority housing?

Though a few of our fraternities and sororities have lodges near campus, they are non-residential houses. The lodges are mostly used as meeting and study spaces for the chapters.

What is the time commitment when you join a fraternity or sorority?

Typically, the first semester is the most time consuming for members, due to each chapter’s new member education process. In addition, members can expect to attend weekly chapter meetings, study hours and the occasional philanthropy or service event.

I’m having a hard time figuring out which chapter to join. How do I decide?

Each of the fraternities and sororities at Texas Tech have a rich history tied to their individual values and traditions. Interested members should research the organizations and look for values and attributes that meet their interests. It is encouraged to visit the national and local websites for additional information, and the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life is available to answer any questions prospective members have about our chapters.
