Membership Benefits

Becoming a member of a fraternal organization can be one of the most exciting and rewarding times of a student’s collegiate career.   The fraternal experience provides students the opportunity to obtain management and leadership skills; which assists them with managing and maintaining academically successful chapters.  The national organization of the fraternal chapters requires their members to host programs that advocate, support, promote service to the community, and bring awareness to health issues, social and political issues.  Also providing another opportunity for members to gain organization and planning skills.
