Greek Life Values


Each Greek chapter is self-governing, allowing many opportunities for participation in committees as well as elected and appointed offices. The governing councils are also student-led and include policy, planning, financial and facilitation opportunities. This allows students to develop and practice their leadership and interpersonal skills that will translate to any career.

Lifelong Friendships

Brotherhood and Sisterhood are the basis for the existence of fraternities and sororities. This can provide close friendships and the peer support you need to be successful at this university. Your brothers and sisters will share some of your most memorable moments during college, and many of them will remain your friends for life.


Everyone is in college for an education, and Greek organizations want to make sure you are successful academically. Chapters and Councils sponsor recognition activities to reward academic achievement of individuals and chapters. They also have tutoring programs and provide support for your study efforts. No matter what your major, you will find friends ready and willing to help you do your best.


Community Service is one of the founding principles for all fraternities and sororities. Greek Life at CMU offers a wide array of service opportunities in varying causes, where you will find opportunities to participate in both hands-on service as well as philanthropic endeavors. When you visit with the chapter members during the recruitment process, be sure to ask about their philanthropic interests and programs.
