What are the benefits of Greek Life?
Academic Support & Excellence: All Greek organizations at Rutgers require a minimum GPA to be considered for active membership. To accommodate this requirement, many chapters provide study groups, incentives and rewards, study sessions or mentoring programs. Thanks, in part to the chapter’s academic goals and these programs, the Panhellenic sorority average GPA is above the All-Women’s GPA, and the IFC fraternity average GPA is above the All-Men’s.
Lifelong Friends: College is a time to develop lasting friendships and meaningful relationships. Greeks share great moments and challenges during their college years. Having a support system of brothers and sisters eases the transition to post-graduate life, and gives members a family away from home.
Career Networking: All inter/national sororities and fraternities have networking systems in place to help members connect to others in their career path. Local alumni associations are great contacts for internships, references, and prospective job interviews.
Community Service & Philanthropy: Every Greek organization at Rutgers were created to include service to others. Each year Rutgers Greeks raise money and hold events to benefit national and local philanthropies. Each organization also requires volunteer hours from members.
