At first glance, USF can seem overwhelming with a population of more than 48,000 students. The Greek community gives students the chance to make a big campus feel small. When choosing a fraternity, you should look for a comfortable fit – a place where you share values and interests with the other members. By choosing to become a member of a Greek organization, you will meet people who grow to be your closest friends, those who will cheer you on when you are successful and will support you when the going gets tough. Greek organizations promote the development of close ties between members through living, studying, working, and having fun together.
Joining a fraternity at USF will give you a home away from home. As a member of a Greek organization, you will form meaningful connections and lifelong friendships with a diverse group of students who all share a common set of values and ideals.
Fraternities are learning laboratories that give students the opportunity to learn, test, and grow as they develop as individuals and as leaders. As student-run organizations, fraternities elect members to serve in positions ranging from Committee Chair to President.
Every fraternity believes in making a difference in the world, and members of the USF Greek community never stop giving back. Greek organizations at USF host their own community service and philanthropic activities as well as participate in Dance Marathon, Relay for Life, and other major campus service events, devoting countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars to causes greater than themselves.
All members of fraternities share one commonality: they are students first. Greek organizations at USF consistently rank at or above the undergraduate grade point average, and many chapters host intentional programming geared at improving the scholastic performance of its members.
Each one of the fraternity chapters at USF is a part of a larger national or international organization. This provides a unique opportunity to have a shared experience with members of the same organization across the country and even the world. The rituals are private ceremonies that are values-based, unique, and the same for every single member joining the organization.
