Information for Parents
The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life is responsible for advising social Greek organizations and their respective governing councils at Shippensburg University. In essence, we aim to help our Greek students be an active part of the University and surrounding community while reinforcing the ideals and expectations set forth by their individual organizations and the University.
Joining a fraternity or sorority is much more than just a social outlet. Fraternities and sororities were founded upon and promote the highest ideals in scholarship, service, leadership, and friendship. Associating with, or joining, a fraternity or sorority gives a student an instant "home away from home" and a family of hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of brothers or sisters around the country, who also can serve as a great network when traveling or looking for a job after graduation.
Membership in a Greek organization should be complimentary to the educational mission of the University, and the skills learned from being a part of an active chapter can be utilized in the classroom setting and beyond. This part of our website is designed to help you learn more about Fraternity & Sorority Life at Shippensburg University. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the office.
