Philanthropy

Being in a fraternity gives each brother the opportunity to make an impact on the world around them and their local community.

Philanthropy and community service are very important to each fraternity on campus. Each chapter on campus has a national philanthropy or non-profit organization that they support and some also support local organizations. In order to raise money and awareness, Greeks on campus hand out flyers, organize tournaments, put on shows, put up posters, throw dances and coordinate with other organizations to make each as successful as possible. Many hours of community service are completed as well by serving at food banks, animal shelters, blood drives, volunteering at events and becoming mentors.

Some of the national philanthropies that are supported are:

  • Lion's Legacy (Alpha Epsilon Pi)
  • KDR Kids (Kappa Delta Rho)
  • Big Brothers & Big Sisters (Pi Delta Psi)
  • PUSH America (Pi Kappa Phi)
  • Alzheimer's Association (Sigma Alpha Mu)
  • Habitat for Humanity (Sigma Nu)
  • Children's Miracle Network (Sigma Chi)
  • St. Jude's Childrens Research Hospital (Tau Kappa Epsilon)
  • ALS Foundation (Phi Delta Theta)
  • Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps (Phi Kappa Tau)
  • Boys and Girls Club (Phi Kappa Psi)
  • Special Olympics (Phi Sigma Kappa)

Some annual events to help support these philanthropies:

  • Mud Tug,
