Sororities and fraternities are designed to be more than social organizations. At their best they foster intellectual debate, ethical decision-making and dedication to community service. Built into the foundation of each sorority and fraternity is a set of principles that guides the character development of its members. These guiding principles include scholarship and academic success, community service and philanthropy, as well as sisterhood/brotherhood. The sorority and fraternity community here on campus has made significant contributions to the UT Austin student experience and continues to offer ways for all students to make meaningful, lifelong connections. Feel free to contact Sorority and Fraternity Life, which offers a wealth of information, support and opportunities for leadership development. Take the time to get to know members from each of the various sorority and fraternity councils and learn from their unique perspectives. Consider the sorority and fraternity community and all of its possibilities. Set high standards of conduct and strive to have a positive impact on campus life here at UT Austin.

The mission of Sorority and Fraternity Life is to develop students, both as individuals and within organizations, through diverse involvement opportunities, educational experiences, and academic initiatives in order to be socially responsible and ethical leaders in a global community.
joining a sorority or fraternity The University of Texas at Austin’s diverse sorority and fraternity community offers students outstanding opportunities to get involved and fosters academic success, service to others, campus leadership and community among members. While academics are the primary reason to attend The University of Texas at Austin, sorority and fraternity members achieve the best college experience possible through the proper balancing of academics, service
and community building.
Sorority and Fraternity Life aspires to be nationally recognized and offer premiere leadership experiences that add value to the university by developing lifelong leaders.
Values • Providing programs and services with Integrity • A Student-Centered Approach committed to advocacy and involvement in decision-making • Leadership by fostering an environment that empowers students to make a positive impact • Community achieved through building relationships and creating understanding • Inclusive Environments with diverse perspectives and experiences • Collaborative Partnerships that increase efficiency and effectiveness in serving students
Academics and learning are the most important aspects of college life, and sorority and fraternity members recognize that the purpose of attending college is to receive a quality education. Each organization places great emphasis on high scholastic standards and many promote academic excellence through supervised study halls, incentive programs, study skills workshops, or tutoring. All organizations have an expectation that its new and initiated members maintain a specified grade point average to remain in good standing with the chapter. Currently, the All Sorority and Fraternity GPA is 3.23.
Another important aspect of membership in a sorority or fraternity is giving back to the community. Many organizations support charitable organizations by volunteering and donating money throughout the school year. Some organizations work with multiple non-profit organizations and local schools as a way of contributing to the Austin community. With over 75 local and national organizations, the UT Austin sorority and fraternity community has contributed over 82,000 hours of community service and raised $818,000 through various philanthropy and service opportunities over the last year.

family guide Is Sorority and Fraternity Life New to You? This section is intended to provide helpful information to parents and guardians, and answers to frequently-asked questions. Sororities and fraternities promote close relationship bonds, and members typically refer to fellow members as “sisters” or “brothers.” Traditionally, most sororities and fraternities designate their organization by using Greek letters: hence they are often referred to as “Greek-letter organizations.” Every sorority and fraternity has unique rituals and creeds that promote the ideals of friendship, loyalty, academic achievement, and intellectual development, service to the community and the alma mater, honor and integrity,
Becoming a New Member The new member period is designed to bring students closer to other new members, active sisters and brothers, and familiarize them with the organization’s history and goals. Some new member classes elect officers, hold weekly meetings, organize study halls and plan activities.
leadership and personal responsibility. All sororities and fraternities are based on values, ethics and standards.
Recruitment/Rush/Intake Recruitment/rush/intake is defined as any sorority or fraternity activity that seeks to add new members to a chapter. Some sororities and fraternities host recruitment throughout the year, while others recruit during a specified time period each semester or year. Regardless of when it occurs, any chapter activity that serves the purpose of adding new members to the chapter constitutes recruitment and must be in compliance

How will joining a sorority or fraternity affect my student academically? Student academic success is important to the sorority and fraternity community. The academic portion of the college experience is the greatest determinant of future success. However, employers look for students
who have balanced both academic success with extracurricular involvement. For this reason, all organizations have specific grade point requirements for new members. All organizations have a minimum grade point average (GPA) and a requirement to remain a member in good standing. Individual organizations as well as the Office of the Dean of Students recognize sorority and fraternity members who excel scholastically each year.
What impact does joining a sorority or fraternity have on grades?
I’ve truly grown as an individual and I’ve benefited from UT Austin’s immense diversity. -Willie Castrejon, Delta Alpha Omega Multicultural Fraternity, Inc. Alumnus
The academic success of members is an important aspect of the sorority and fraternity experience. All organizations have specific new member grade point requirements, as well as a minimum grade point average
The transition from high school to college is a difficult one for many students, but one great way to ease that shift into college life is to join a UT student organization. UT has a student organization for Longhorns of virtually any stripe, and joining one enables students to make friends and take part in many campus activities. Those organizations also allow students to build networks that will benefit them throughout their lives.
to remain a member in good standing. When policies and guidelines are followed, the process of becoming a member should have a positive impact on grades.
A family, support network and leadership opportunities.
When do students typically join? 90% of the students that join a sorority or fraternity do so during their first semester in college. Students, including transfers, sophomores, juniors and seniors, also have the opportunity to join the sorority and fraternity community. Some organizations prefer that an incoming member have a UT Austin GPA and credit hours before being considered for membership.
Which sorority or fraternity is the best one to join? There are 69 sororities and fraternities on campus (30 sororities and 39 fra-

Your sorority sisters can be a group that provides a smaller community atmosphere where you can feel comfortable and makes the campus less impersonal and less intimidating, especially on a campus with 50,000 students.

sis on values, service, philanthropic opportunities and a diverse membership. Choosing the “best” one is up to your student and should be based on where s/he feels most comfortable and not on what others may say.
Helpful Hints for Parents or Guardians t Take the time to find out more about the chapters your student is interested in by visiting deanofstudents.utexas.edu/sfl/ as well as the organizations national Web site. t Be supportive of your student’s choice of a sorority or fraternity. t Encourage your student to attend programs sponsored by Sorority and Fraternity Life in the Office of the Dean of Students. t Ask for details about the financial responsibilities of membership. Determine with your student who will pay and what limitations these expenses may impose. For many organizations, one-time inter/national dues are paid during the first year, so expect the first year to be the most expensive. t Know names and phone numbers of the organization president, new member educator, big sister/big brother, organization advisor and house director, if there is one.
Over 40 years ago, I pledged and was initiated into a college fraternity. As an undergraduate, my fraternity provided me the opportunity to grow as an individual, develop responsibility, assume leadership positions, and expand social skills. As a graduate, my fraternal relationships have led to lifelong friendships, reaffirmed high ethical standards and values, and fostered personal development in the pursuit of excellence. Several years ago, I had the pleasure to watch my son pledge at UT. Though he joined a different fraternity, the outcomes were similar with noted exceptions. The successful fraternities of today’s era have learned to displace pledge hazing and replace with a focus on scholarship. Hook ‘em!

Student organizations, fraternities, and sororities can offer students excellent opportunities for service to our campus and Austin communities and provide the connections that make campus home.” -Dr. Gregory Vincent, Vice President for the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement
Becoming involved with a student organization is one of the best ways to enhance your college experience and gain valuable leadership experiences. Seek out opportunities that will contribute to your personal growth and even push you beyond your comfort zone. Whether through a sorority, fraternity or another student group, there are a multitude of ways to get involved on campus and take advantage of your time at UT Austin.
I gained many positive benefits joining the community. I gained friends, leadership positions, and positive influences in my life. -Tiffany Chen, Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc.

Increased confidence and an expanded network. -Diana Lee, Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority Inc.
The two and a half years I spent living with my sorority sisters were the best 2 1/2 years of my college experience. Knowing that everyone in that house is available to you—to listen to you complain, to laugh with you at an embarrassing story, to cry with you over a disappointment, to help you with a class, to go for a run or out to a party when you just need to get out—gives you such confidence. Being available for each and every one of them teaches you how to love and empathize with people even if you don’t want to that day. I think I am a far better wife, mother, and friend for having spent 2 1/2 years living with my sisters. -Jeri Seidman, Assistant Professor of Accounting, McCombs School of Business

What is Affiliate Membership? Affiliate Membership targets two groups: fraternities and sororities who fit into a current council structure and are waiting until they can petition a council, and fraternities and sororities that don’t fit into a current structure but still want to be a part of Sorority and Fraternity Life.
Who is eligible for Affiliate Membership? Affiliate membership is available to all sororities and fraternities on campus that have a primary mission of service, sisterhood/brotherhood, and scholarship. All organizations interested in becoming affiliates must have a chapter advisor. After being granted Affiliate status, a chapter has access to all the leadership development, scholarship opportunities, risk management education, and academic programming offered. All affiliate groups are encouraged to join a council.
What is the Affiliate Membership process like? The affiliate membership program application process primarily addresses the issues of risk management, academics and membership. It involves a written application as well as an interview with our staff. For more information, contact us at 512-471-9700 to set up a preliminary interview for your chapter’s executive board.

men who are sure to become lifelong friends. At a school of 50,000+, fraternity life allows its newest members to find their niche both on the UT Austin campus and in the Austin community.
How do I join? Fraternity recruitment is a mutual selection process by which members of a fraternity decide which men they would most like to join their fraternity. At the same time, prospective members are deciding which fraternity most interests them. There will be opportunities during summer orientation sessions to meet chapter representatives. Interested men are encouraged to check out the Sorority and Fraternity Life Information sessions and the Sorority and Fraternity Life table at the summer orientation BBQ. You can also register for recruitment at deanofstudents.utexas.edu/glie/ IFCrecruitment/.
Leadership and Character Character is the quality that a man must possess to assume a place as a respected, mature leader in his community and in his work. The fraternity community presents a stage for individuals to develop the initiative, poise, and responsibility that form the basis of character. As a member gains experience and gathers advice from the leaders of his fraternity, he can learn from their success and develop strong leadership qualities of his own.
Academics A common misconception is that joining a fraternity will take away from classes and study time. In actuality, fraternities provide study halls, big brother programs, and peer mentoring and tutoring in order to aid new members in their scholastic efforts. The members of IFC organizations represent a broad array of majors, so a new member is sure to find specialized help from within

their fraternity. IFC fraternities have minimum GPA requirements that new members must maintain in order to become active members. Additionally, each fraternity is ranked by GPA semesterly, providing friendly competition amongst IFC organizations to further encourage academic excellence.
Philanthropy Within Community IFC Fraternities actively strive for the betterment of the Austin community. Organizations hold benefits for local charities, blood drives, food donation
drives, and also volunteer time in order to foster and instill good community values. Through charitable activities, members become aware of the needs of those less fortunate than themselves and learn the meaning of social responsibility.

Texas Asian Pan-Hellenic Council recruitment takes place in both the fall and spring semesters. During the second week of school each semester, TAPC organizations hand out fliers on the West Mall and in Jester residence hall to interested recruits. The recruitment period lasts the entire week and is intended to simulate the experience of being a member of a TAPC organization. The week may include a service project, mixer and sisterhood or brotherhood event. Any full-time UT Austin student is eligible to participate. Potential new members must submit applications and be interviewed in order to receive a bid.
Benefits of Membership Joining an Asian-interest organization allows Asian Americans the opportunity to build strong relationships with each other through sisterhood and brotherhood. The sorority or fraternity is not only a support system, but it also provides Asian Americans with opportunities to serve the community, develop leadership skills and strengthen academics. Each of the organizations that are part of TAPC has different goals and visions, so there are a variety of organizations to choose from. Each organization is committed to support-

sorority and fraternity life LEADERSHIP
Leadership Scholarship Service Community Did You Know? Sororities and fraternities have had a presence at The University of Texas at Austin since the late 1800s. The area in the Office of the Dean of Students that currently serves the sorority and fraternity communities on campus was created in 1988 in response to a 1987 report by the Presidential Commission on Fraternal Organizations.
Sorority and Fraternity New Member Orientation A required program for new members of sororities and fraternities. The program is offered each year, and topics include risk management, diversity education, and the responsibilities and challenges of being a member of our sorority and fraternity community.
SCHOLARSHIP/SERVICE Sorority and Fraternity Leadership Issues This class (EDP 369K) focuses on the UT Austin sorority and fraternity community. Topics include: leadership development, risk management, diversity education, academic success, service learning, and community building.
Order of Omega Sorority and Fraternity Life in the Office of the Dean of Students provides programs and services for the sorority and fraternity community. We provide support services to students who are members of sororities
Order of Omega is a national honor society for members of sororities and fraternities that annually recognizes outstanding sorority and fraternity members for their academic achievements and contributions to their campus communities.
and fraternities as well as the six governing councilsâ€”Interfraternity, Latino Pan-Hellenic, Multicultural, National Pan-Hellenic, Texas Asian Pan-Hellenic and University Panhellenic Councils, Affiliate Groups and Order of Omega National Honor Society. Sororities and fraternities affiliated with our area comprise 69 of the approximate 1,000 student organizations registered at the university. Over 5,200 students, or 14%, of the undergraduate population at the university are members of these sororities and fraternities.
Undergraduate Internship Opportunities Interns have the opportunity to explore unique aspects of their undergraduate studies such as leadership, diversity, and community. Internships are available to undergraduate and graduate students who are members of a sorority or fraternity. Internships may also be eligible for course credit.
COMMUNITY Sorority and Fraternity Awards These annual awards acknowledge the contributions of organizations and individual sorority and fraternity members for their academic, service, philanthropic and community achievements.
