Greek Life: The Parent's Guide to Sororities and Fraternities

Time flies so fast, and as much as we wish for our children to remain little, that's not possible. So facing up to the fact that your son or daughter is finally growing up and becoming an adult can be difficult for parents. But it’s best to be armed with all the facts before you help them pack their bags and send them off to college. Sororities and fraternities are often a big part of college life for many students. Many parents, however, know little or nothing about Greek life and what it means for students. This guide will change all that.

Effects on Studies and Academic Focus

When your son or daughter is part of a sorority or fraternity, it can have an effect on their studies. Many parents assume that this impact is a negative one. And if students get too distracted by the social aspects of Greek life, that can be the case. But for most students, the impact they have on their academic focus can be hugely positive. Mentoring and academic activities are actually very common.

The Social Aspect

One of the biggest things that appeal to students is the social aspect of being part of a sorority or fraternity. This is something that allows them to make friends at college quickly. And these friendships often turn out to be lifelong. There is a brotherly or sisterly bond between people who are part of the same chapter, so it’s important to many students. Without this, they can find it more difficult to fit in at college.
