Brotherhood and Sisterhood:
Giving a brother a ride to work, helping a sister study for a history exam, giving up a weekend to attend a leadership conference... all of these are examples of what brotherhood and sisterhood mean. Every member of the Greek Community at West Chester is different in some way, but all fraternities and sororities have a common bond that holds them together. Brotherhood and sisterhood are what all the fraternities and sororities at WCU are founded on. These ideals have kept Greek letter organizations running for well over 200 years across the country and for decades here at West Chester. The bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood are life long and cannot be broken. When joining you have an extended family.
Service & Philanthropy:
The entire Greek community here at West Chester donates much of its time, money, and effort to service projects to help those in need. Projects such as Halloween on High Street, Martin Luther King Day of Service, and canning for Camp Dreamcatcher are some of the projects that the Greek system at West Chester organizes and participates in. Our biggest fundraiser of the year by far is Dance Marathon, which raises thousands of dollars each year to send children affected by AIDS to camp in the summer. Each individual chapter also raises money for different philanthropies throughout the year, which only adds to the rewarding hours of service done by Greeks on the WCU campus.
The real reason you're here at WCU is to achieve academic success. To promote good study habits most chapters have scholarship programs, in-depth files, and study hours for new members. Each chapter has a minimum GPA that new members are required to meet in order to be initiated, and many have programs to keep your GPA, as well as the entire Greek System's above the all-university average.
Being a member of a fraternity or sorority provides many opportunities to build leadership skills. As a Greek Leader you will experience what it takes to run non-profit organization and provide experiences in managing finances, maintaining a home, and how to plan a large event. You will also learn how to recruit, improve interview skills, and most importantly how to manage your time. In addition to these leadership qualities you earn, you will have the opportunity to attend leadership training seminars and conferences.
Below are the minimum requirements to join a fraternity or sorority at WCU. Individual Chapters may have additional requirements you must meet in order to receive an invitation to join. Please ask what those requirements are when seeking membership.
