Founded upon the principles of friendship, community service, scholarship and leadership, Greek life provides students with an enriching and rewarding experience. The Washington & Jefferson Greek Community make up 40% of the W&J student population and are a diverse community with 9 national Greek organizations. The community offers its members opportunities to expand their undergraduate experience through service, leadership, campus involvement, academic excellence, networking, job placement, brotherhood and sisterhood and lifelong friendships. As a parent, your son or daughter may decide to Go Greek and the information below will help give you more insight about Fraternity & Sorority Life at W&J.
One additional expense is the Greek fee, $50 per semester billed by W&J College to each fraternity and sorority member on their tuition bill. This money goes towards the operation of the Fraternity and Sorority Life Office, providing leadership and educational opportunities for Greek students, and supplementing the programming individual chapters plan. For more specific financial information regarding each chapter, please contact the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at email@example.com。我们可以把你在与各章节成员或顾问的具体问题或疑虑接触。
As a member of a fraternity or sorority at W&J your student will have an obligation to live in the chapter house upon initiation. Each chapter has their own requirements for filling their space but newest members are often called upon first to fill the open spaces. Students are permitted to live in fraternity or sorority housing after their first year of residence at W&J. All ten fraternity and sorority houses are non-smoking residences. In addition, some organizations strive to maintain substance-free housing for the safety of their members.
Hazing is illegal in Pennsylvania and does not have any place in the activities of our Greek organizations. Fraternity and Sorority students are educated about the dangers of hazing and how to seek assistance if they witness it. Washington & Jefferson College does not condone hazing or hazing-like activities and all of our national organizations have policies against hazing. Any suggestion of hazing is fully investigated and appropriate actions taken. If you feel that your student may be participating in or is the target of inappropriate activities associated with hazing, you should contact the 欺侮 hotline at 1-888-668-4293. You can also reach out to the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at 724-229-5140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fraternity and Sorority membership begins during recruitment and lasts a lifetime. While your student is in college, the W&J Greek community will help them meet their personal, academic, social, cultural and recreational goals.
The entire Greek community at W&J encourages their members to get involved through a variety of programs and activities. Whether serving on a scholarship committee or chairing a campus fund-raising project, all members are challenged to reach their personal best.
