"I joined a sorority because I wanted to meet women who were as academically driven as I was, so I would be held accountable for my grades. I also joined my chapter because I found that not only were these Greek women there to hold me accountable, but they were there to have fun and support me.  - Dakota Metzger, Junior studying Music Education

A research study conducted by the Center for Advanced Social Research at the University of Missouri (Columbia) produced these findings:

  • Membership Will Keep You In School

    Sorority or fraternity members are more likely to stay in college than other students.  

  • Membership = More Success

    College graduates who belong to a fraternity or sorority tend to be more successful financially than other college graduates.  

  • Members Give More

    Research shows that colleges receive more gifts, and in greater amounts, from sorority and fraternity alumni.  

  • Members Are More Active

    Greek student members tend to participate more often in co-curricular campus and community activities than other students.   

  • Continuing Community Service

    Sorority and Fraternity Alumni take part more often in volunteer organizations and charitable activities than others do after they graduate college.   

  • Better Experience = Better Value

    Research has shown that Greek alumni rate the "overall value of the college experience" at a higher level when compared to other graduates.
