The fraternity or sorority experience is a unique opportunity for F&M students spanning over 165 years. Generations of students and alumni have chosen this gateway to advance involvement and social development. Fraternities & Sororities are a values-based life-long experience. Commitment requires living to a higher standard as a college student. F&M Fraternities & Sororities focus on FIVE key areas of Excellence and Educational & Growth Opportunities.
A Gallup survey of 30,000 college/university alumni found that persons who said they had been members of Greek-letter organizations while undergraduates reported having a greater sense of purpose, as well as better social and physical well-being, than those who had not.
