“Going Greek” is a great way to meet new people on campus, find a family away from home, and become involved in all that Florida Southern has to offer. Along with friendships and fun, fraternities and sororities have a way of bringing out the best in their members.
Through their various activities and philanthropies, fraternity and sorority members are able to develop leadership, organization, communication, and interpersonal skills. They learn the importance of dedication, responsibility, working with others, and self-reliance.
The fraternity and sorority community at Florida Southern unites to support each other through attendance of philanthropic and social events. Together, FSC chapters work to bring the best of Greek Life to campus.
Fraternity and sorority members are actively involved in every aspect of campus life.

While each of our chapters are different, our fraternity and sorority community is bonded by the four pillars of the Greek Life.
At FSC, our fraternity and sorority members are scholars, leaders, community servants, and live their lives with purpose and integrity.
A primary purpose of the fraternity and sorority community is to encourage and develop high scholastic achievement among its members.
As a member of the Greek community, you will have the opportunity to meet students of various backgrounds with both similar and different interests. Within each chapter, there is a close bond of friendship and brotherhood that only the fraternity atmosphere can foster.
The Greek Village at Florida Southern College fosters friendship for all fraternity and sorority members. The partnership between FSC and national organizations to provide Greek housing on campus is a rich tradition and provides engagement for fraternity and sorority members in a supportive campus community.
In the fraternity and sorority, you will be in “charge" of an event or a duty. Everyone in the fraternity and sorority is a leader, whether you’re an officer, on a committee, or just a participant.
As a Greek community, we strive to be unified leaders on campus and in our community, with positive attitudes that will be influential to all students on campus. We hold ourselves to higher standards by becoming more rounded socially and achieving academic success to prepare ourselves to be one step ahead in the future.
The Greek community provides services to more than just members of fraternities. One of the many advantages of being a part of the Greek community is the time spent helping others in need. At Florida Southern, fraternities and sororities work side-by-side to help local or national charitable organizations.
