The fraternities and sororities at Franklin and Marshall value their alumni and like to keep them actively engaged and enthusiastic about their chapters and organizations. Most groups have recognized Affinity Groups, which can be found here. If your chapter does not have an Affinity Group and you are interested in starting one, please contact Donna Pflum (Associate Director of Alumni Relations). 

Fraternal bonds extend well beyond graduation. Many alumni, through fraternity and sorority affinity groups, continue to engage by celebrating milestones together; both on campus and regionally they support a strong student connection that provides networking and mentorship opportunities, and encourage alumni support of giving back to their community through service projects.
