At WSU, students have the option to join a fraternity or sorority during their college years. We call this “Greek life” since the fraternity/sorority names are comprised of Greek letters. Greek organizations are potentially life-long, national and international, social and career networks. The organizations are often referred to as “brotherhoods” or “sisterhoods” and encourage students to study and be good citizens. Many of the fraternities and sororities have a philanthropic focus and also require a GPA minimum of students within their chapter. In fact, the average GPA of students involved in Greek life is consistently higher than the overall average WSU student GPA. WSU offers a wide variety of Greek organizations from which to choose. Approximately one-fourth of the student body at WSU is involved in Greek life. Students can learn more about fraternities (for men) here and for sororities (for women) here.
