Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs

Planning a successful event for your Greek-letter Organization takes time, preparation, communication, and working with your members as well as a number of stakeholders. Events can range from programs, brotherhood/sisterhood activities, new member presentations, philanthropic fundraisers, chapter retreats, and social events. The Office of Student Activities - Fraternity & Sorority Affairs believes that planning along with managing safe and effective events is a shared responsibility. In doing our part, the Office of Student Activities - Fraternity & Sorority Affairs will work with groups by educating and providing resources to effectively plan, register, prepare, and execute their event.
