"These letters don't make me better than you; these letters make
me better than I used to be."
Fraternity and Sorority Life at Methodist University
provides the opportunity for students to participate in a unique experience.
Fraternities and sororities have a long standing tradition of the four
Greek Pillars: community service, excellence in scholarship, leadership
development, and sisterhood/brotherhood.
The Methodist Fraternity and Sorority Life program is dedicated to upholding
the traditions of fraternal organizations with the goal of continuing
the expansion process to form new colonies over the next couple of years.
The Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life recognizes those organizations
that are committed to the Pillars of Greek Life. The Department seeks
to foster premier Fraternity and Sorority Communities by challenging the
Fraternity and Sorority Community membership to live up to those highest
principles and ideals upon which their respective organizations were founded:
- Promote intellectual development and student learning
- Contribute through service and philanthropy
- Create a healthy and safe community environment
- Engage in campus life and leadership
- Provide a quality involvement opportunity for student
- Instill organization values with positive and productive conduct
- Cultivate leadership skills and abilities
- Have integrity
The Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life will support the Fraternity
and Sorority community membership in meeting these challenges by:
- Providing accountability and opportunities for distinction
- Dedicated professional advisor
- Establishing parameters for appropriate activities and behaviors
- Offering safe attractive chapter facilities
- Fostering a diverse and inclusive community
- Presenting council and chapter leadership training
