Four Pillars of Greek Life
Brotherhood / Sisterhood
Academic excellence is one of the most important aspects of college life. Each chapter has activities such as study hall hours, tutoring, and mentoring programs to help members maintain scholastic excellence.
A Fraternity or Sorority is the ideal place for students to gain the knowledge they need to develop their leadership skills. The chapters offer leadership positions to fit students' goals and abilities from academics, finance, community service athletics and much more
Fraternities and Sororities offer one thing that no other campus organization can, the lifelong bonds of brothers and sisters. It is a family of like-minded, highly-motivated peers and supportive friends right here at MU!
Giving of oneself is one of the fundamental values of the Fraternity & Sorority community. Each year, chapters spend countless hours raising hundreds of dollars for worthy causes. Projects are conducted on individual chapter levels to benefit organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Relay for Life, and local organization in Fayetteville!

MU is one of the youngest Greek Communities to have housing. The Greeks take pride in these houses and love having a place to call their own! These houses are used for events like
Fraternities and sororities were founded on strong moral, social, and academic principles. Hazing, or any activity which subjects members to harassment, intimidation, physical exhaustion, or mental distress is entirely contrary to those founding principles. Each of the inter/national organizations at Methodist University as well as the University Code of Student Conduct and state law forbid hazing in all student activities at the University.
Joining a fraternity or a sorority does have a financial commitment. The chapters are self-supporting through dues paid by their members. When students join a Greek letter organization, they also agree to pay dues and fees while in school to maintain membership. Although chapters may make accommodations for special needs, you should discuss the financial obligations with your parents or guardians before deciding to join.
Each chapter has different dues for membership that cover such things as chapter and national dues, your membership badge, social activities, resources, and other miscellaneous costs. Many chapters also offer payment plan options for those interested.
While there are certain attendance requirements, a well-balanced schedule is encouraged for all members. Through involvement with the chapter, students will learn to better manage their time by balancing academics, work, and other commitments. Academic commitments are the first priority and many Greek members hold student jobs as well. Greek organizations are conscientious of the full schedules that most students have and offer flexibility as much as possible. Students find that being active in a fraternity or sorority is well worth the time they put into it.
Membership in a Greek letter organization is a lifetime commitment. Membership within the Greek community means working with a group of men or women who can exchange dialogue and stand for common goals and ideas while being held to a higher standard than other college students. The Greek experience during the college years is a gateway to many rewards and connections later in life.
Chapter members develop a special bond with one another. Both are nurtured through common work, laughter, service projects, intramural, and the shared successes and challenges of all. Throughout your life, membership will be an unwritten bond of friendship no matter what course his/her life takes.
