The fraternity and sorority experience is an investment in your future. The leadership skills, the academic assistance, and friendships will benefit you beyond your college days. The perception that fraternities and sororities are only an option for the "rich" students is false. Fraternities and sororities can be quite affordable and fees go to services that will positively impact your membership experience.
The cost to join will vary from chapter to chapter. There are three kinds of costs: one time costs (pledge & initiation fees), recurring costs (membership dues, room & board rates) and special costs (tee shirts, social functions, etc). Ask the various chapters specific questions about each area. To assist members, chapters may offer scholarships and grants. We encourage all interested students to ask for financial information prior to joining.
