Info for Parents
Fraternity and sorority members are committed to scholarship in action, community service, philanthropy, leadership, accountability, brotherhood and sisterhood. Membership creates lifelong friendships and provides leadership opportunities that can assist students in their academic and professional endeavors.
The Fraternity and Sorority Life community at the University of Michigan-Flint consists of a variety of organizations from which your son or daughter may choose depending on their specific interest. If your child takes the time to learn about each Greek organization, they will be in position to make a very sound decision as to what group is right for them. Some thoughts your student should keep in mind include:
What is the fraternity/sorority GPA?
How does this fraternity/sorority rank academically?
What will becoming an active member require?
What financial costs are associated with this particular fraternity/sorority?
What is the fraternity/sorority mission and does it fit with my values?
The Office of Student Life works closely with recognized chapters to enhance the overall Greek experience by upholding academic and community standards, organization rituals, and University policies governing fraternity and sorority activities.
We encourage you to become familiar with fraternity and sorority activities on campus, especially the new member education process. We also encourage you to talk with your student and encourage him or her to base selection of a fraternity or sorority organization on personal lifestyle and values, general compatibility, and organization goals. Parents can serve as consultants to students as they define themselves during their college years.
Our goal is to ensure that the Greek experience at the University of Michigan-Flint provides a fun and secure avenue for students to grow and develop during their years here. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Director of Greek Life at your convenience.
