Academics
As a general rule, students who belong to fraternal organizations actually make better grades than those who are nonmembers. In the Fall of 2001, non-Greek students earned a 2.94 GPA while the Greek organized had an average 3.06 GPA. Grades are important, we realize that. After all, we wouldn't belong to a fraternity if we weren't first enrolled in college.
