For Parents: So Your Son Wants To Join A Fraternity…

Our chapters across the country are the biggest and best on their campus!

Go Greek

Members of fraternities and sororities make up an elite and prestigious demographic of American society. While composing only 3% of the U.S. population, Greeks occupy some of the most powerful positions in Washington, on Wall Street and in the board rooms of America’s largest companies.

Statistics show that many of the most influential individuals in America today are Greek:

  • 68% of US Presidents since 1868 have been Greek.
  • 42% of US Senators are Greek.
  • 30% of US Congressmen/women are Greek.
  • 40% of all US Supreme Court Justices have been Greek
  • 30% of Fortune 500 Executives are Greek (43 of the top 50).
  • 10% of all listed in the Who’s Who are Greek.

A recent article on Forbes.com states, “…about a quarter of all chief executives on the Forbes Super 500 list of America’s largest corporations were members of college fraternities.” The article continues to state, “The social skills that help students gain admittance into the Greek system are the same aptitudes that can later give them a leg-up in corporate climbing. Plus, once they’ve graduated, they can tap into the network of past fraternity brothers or sisters who litter all tiers of corporate America.”

Membership in a fraternity is not only beneficial in a professional or political career. The benefits start immediately upon joining:

  • Fraternity membership increases college retention rates by 28%.
  • Greeks contribute over $7,000,000 and 850,000 hours to charity/ community service each year.
  • 70% of Greek members graduate college, as opposed to only 50% of non-Greek students.
  • Greek-affiliated students are more likely to be involved on campus.
  • College fraternity graduates tend to be more financially successful than non fraternity graduates.
  • Colleges receive more gifts-and in greater amounts-from Greek alumni.
  • Greek alumni are more satisfied with their social development than no Greeks.
  • As adults, Greeks belong to more civic organizations, and are more likely to donate time and money to those groups.
