New Member Bill of Rights

As a New Member of a F&M Fraternity/Sorority:

The process of becoming an initiated member of my F/S shall help me become both a better individual and an integral part of my organization. I understand that I am entitled to certain rights while at the same time taking on certain responsibilities that are essential to my role as a new member of the F&M Fraternity/Sorority community.

I am responsible for being a fully involved member after initiation, to maintain my financial obligations to the F/S, to seek out leadership positions in my organization and others on campus, to recruit new members to enhance the growth and success of my F/S and the Fraternity/Sorority community, and to fully support all social, philanthropic and service activities of my F/S and others during my time as a member.

I have the right to be treated fairly, to be respected, and to not be intentionally humiliated by any active members or alumni/alumnae of the fraternity/sorority.

I am responsible for learning about my fraternity/sorority to better understand the history, traditions, principles, and values of my Fraternity/Sorority. I have been selected to carry on a legacy left by those before me, and I will strive to support the positive goals and direction of my organization.

I have the right to be a student first and foremost to fulfill my academic obligations while being a member of my Fraternity/Sorority. Good time management and planning will allow me to do both.

I have the right to retain my individuality while becoming a member of my organization. My talents, needs, goals, and skills are unique, and if utilized correctly can help strengthen my F/S and the F/S community. I am responsible for respecting the rights, convictions, and privacy of others, and will to work to improve fraternity/sorority relations with other Fraternity/Sororities; as well as, other organizations and the surrounding community.

I am responsible for serving as an ambassador to the campus and community on behalf of my F/S and the SCSU Fraternity/Sorority Community. I understand that my actions will reflect on both my organization and others as well as influence the perceptions associated with the F&M Fraternity & Sorority Community.

I am responsible for approaching the leaders or advisors of my Sorority/Fraternity if I feel that I have been treated without the respect or dignity based upon our founding principles which fraternity/sorority membership is based. I shall have the opportunity to approach my peer mentor, new member educator, sorority/fraternity president, or chapter advisor without ridicule or repercussion if I do not support or understand the reason for an activity.L
