  • Why Go Greek

    Embarking upon a new path in life often feels lonely and confusing, leaving you wondering where you fit. However, joining a fraternity truly personalizes and enriches the overall collegiate experience. Joining a fraternity is the beginning of a new experience with new friends and the process of discovering a new home-away-from-home. Fraternity members attend a variety of activities such as chapter retreats, meetings, study programs, formal dinners and service projects, fostering a closer relationship with the men who become brothers for a lifetime. Endless opportunities exist for making new friends and forming bonds that will truly last long after graduation when joining a fraternity.


    At Chico State, each fraternity expects academic excellence and improved scholastic achievement from each of its members. Each group has a a specific grade point average requirement that members must maintain to remain active. Chapters also offer academic assistance for members, providing study areas and peer tutoring. Fraternity chapters understand that their members are students first, providing recognition to those who excel and also improve their academic standing.


    One of the many advantages of fraternity membership is the time spent helping others. The ability to give of oneself is one of the most important qualities developed while participating in a fraternity. All of our fraternities hold philanthropic events throughout the academic year, donating to both national and local charities.


    Fraternities provide a solid foundation for leadership development, preparing men for the demands and responsibilities that they will face after graduation. Membership in a fraternity is an extraordinary means of discovering and refining your leadership abilities. Each fraternity uses a committee structure to promote member involvement in all operational aspects of the organization. In addition, fraternity chapters provide educational programming and participate in each of their own regional or national leadership conferences. Becoming involved in a leadership role supports the development of self-confidence, effective communication skills, and ultimately individual growth.


    Each fraternity hosts a variety of social activities. These may include date parties, formals, parents' weekends, retreats, Greek Week, mixers, and many other activities to socialize with sisters and meet other Greek members on campus. 


    Recreation Sports department offers students opportunities to participate in intramural sports. Fraternities often will form teams and collaborate with other Greek organizations to participate in sports such as flag football, softball, soccer, basketball and even dodge ball.
