Fraternity & Sorority Life

While about half of Rhodes students are part of the Greek system, fraternity and sorority houses are non-residential and used only for meetings and events. Fraternities and sororities represent the North American Interfraternity Conference, National Pan-Hellenic Council and National Panhellenic Conference. Fraternity and sorority members are involved in many other student organizations and leadership roles on campus including the Rhodes Student Government, Rhodes Activities Board, Service Scholars, residence life, athletics, the Honor Council and Social Regulations Council.

Philanthropy is one of the four pillars of fraternity and sorority life. Chapters raise money for their local and national philanthropies in a variety of ways. Over 80% of Rhodes students participate in service and our Greek students are no different. Some of their philanthropies include Arthritis Research, Girl Scouts of the USA, Make-A-Wish, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The first and foremost priority of Rhodes College students is academic achievement, and helping members achieve this goal is a primary objective of the Fraternity and Sorority Community. The chapters place a heavy emphasis on scholarship, and each have an academic achievement program. Programs include organized study hours, tutoring, educational incentives and major mentors for selecting classes.
