Parents

Florida International University welcomes your student to our Fraternity and Sorority Life community! We are pleased to have the opportunity to play an important role in your student’s collegiate experience and hope that your students will soon realize the lifetime benefits of membership in one of our Greek organizations.

The Greek Community at FIU consists of 19 fraternities and 12 sororities. While each organization has its own individual purpose for establishment and Ritual, each is founded on similar principles of academic excellence, leadership, community service, and lifelong brother|sisterhood. Membership in a fraternity or sorority can be a student’s best collegiate experience, if fraternity is done right (by living the Ritual). To help students achieve academically, our organizations offer study groups and workshops on effective study strategies and time management. In order to remain active in a chapter, the University requires all students to maintain a minimum of a 2.7 term and 2.5 overall GPA. Chapters oftentimes chapters have higher GPA requirements to ensure academic excellence and ensure a timely college graduation date.

FIU has a zero-tolerance policy for hazing in all of its student organizations. Hazing is forbidden and will not be tolerated. Fraternity and sorority members are educated on the dangers of such practices on an ongoing basis.

The most important members in our chapters are the new members – for they are the future of our community. Our goal is to provide our new members with not only an education of what it means to be a fraternity man or sorority women, but also with information to strengthen their self-esteem, enhance their character, and develop their leadership potential. We specifically train our members on how to reduce and prevent high risk behaviors such as, hazing prevention, appreciating culture differences and going beyond tolerance to acceptance of differences, sexual assault prevention, and other pertinent issues that may arise that put communities at risk. Additionally, after graduation, your student will have opportunities to continue friendships and to develop leadership skills, for all our organizations have alumni chapters encourage lifelong engagement and volunteer opportunities..

Fraternity and Sorority Life staff strongly believes that you – as parents and/or family members – are a part of our extended family. We invite you to visit our office, located on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus (MMC) in Graham Center Room 2240, and learn more about the opportunities that Fraternity and Sorority Life offer. If you would like to talk to a professional in Fraternity and Sorority Life, please call 305-348-2138. We are quite proud of our initiated members and we look forward to adding your daughter or son to our sister and brotherhood.
