Joining a sorority or fraternity enhances the student experience at Illinois State University. Visit the Greek Life viewbook to learn more about our chapters and the benefits of membership.
These sessions are educational programs that engage interested members in a variety of topics including what it means to be Greek, how to get involved beyond just membership, risk management, image, and the history of fraternal organizations. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the role fraternity and sorority members play in the Greek community and how to make positive choices that will assist in the elevation of the greater Illinois State University community.
