Our Community

Joining a fraternity or sorority doesn't just shape your college experience, it shapes your life. Because of this lifelong commitment, it is important you join the organization that is right for you. Here you will find information on our chapters' performance and involvement, answers to some of our most frequently asked questions, Greek terminology, a few well known members of fraternities/sororities, and the joining process for each council. 

It is important to note that while our councils offer different experiences, they all have core values and specific requirements they must meet. All our organizations have strong commitments to academics, leadership development, community service/philanthropy, social involvement, and professional/personal development.

Academics

Academics are held in high regard and valued by each one of our organizations. Across the country it is common for fraternity and sorority communities to high GPAs equal to or higher than the university average; and Texas State is no different. Here you will find academic information for all of our chapters.
