Fraternity and Sorority Life

Members of fraternities and sororities at Gustavus benefit by developing skills and competencies that prepare them for success. The community benefits as a result of programs designed to enrich the social, philanthropic, intellectual, and cultural interests of the community.

As part of a larger community, fraternities and sororities foster the ability of students to work across boundaries by promoting co-sponsorship and planning of programs with diverse groups.

Another important function of chapters is philanthropy and service. Each organization has a designated philanthropy for which chapters organize fundraising events. In addition, many chapters give their time to local agencies in support of particular cause or issue. By dedicating themselves to helping others, fraternities and sororities assist their members in the development of moral character and a sense of community.
