WHY JOIN A GREEK-LETTERED ORGANIZATION
Fraternities and sororities offer their members many benefits. A few core reasons to join a Greek-lettered organization include:
Academics are consistently promoted throughout chapters. Generally speaking members of a fraternity/sorority often have higher grade point averages compared to non Greek life students. Additionally, according to retention data, members of Greek organizations are more likely to complete their college degree than their non-Greek counterparts.

Leadership and Campus Involvement
Greek Life is a great way to become involved at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Both chapter and councils offer formal and informal leadership opportunities. Research has shown that involved college students are more likely to graduate and report greater satisfaction with their overall college experience.
UMD's Greek Life community does a great job each year giving back. Thousands of hours of community service are completed each year alongside thousands of dollars being raised for nonprofit organizations.
