Fraternity and Sorority Life

Leadership, Education and Service

Joining a fraternity or sorority is about more than just friendship! Members are encouraged to give back to the community through service initiatives, which may be organized by the office, the governing council and the individual chapter. The office also provides different events throughout the year that encourages members to focus on their own personal and professional development.


Every year, Greek Village opens to children from the university family and the greater Columbia community for trick-or-treating. Chapters put together carnival games such as face painting, cornhole, and more to entertain children.

The fall 2022 date will be announced in August.

The FSL Leadership Retreat is an annual event where chapter presidents come together for community building, leadership development and operational training.

Date: Jan. 29, 2022

Hosted by the Leadership and Service Center and Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, SLDC is a regional conference that trains and educates student leaders on topics spanning leadership and diversity. Students participate in sessions on topics including: developing a leadership identity, exploring social justice and inclusion, creating initiatives and methods to foster sustainable positive change, and maximizing your student leadership experience.

FSL is proud to sponsor one person from each chapter to attend this year.

The Greek New Member Experience aims to help the newly initiated members of our community build connections with other affiliated-students, learn more about our overall fraternal community, and participate in an immersive community-building experience!

Hosted only once a year, this event is open to members who joined their organization over the past year.

Date: April 15, 2022

We hope to provide small-group opportunities for chapter officers and members to engage with one another, share strategies, and receive informal training and support. Roundtable topics vary and advanced registration is not required.

Dates and topics can be found on the FSL calendar.

Fraternities and sororities are committed to their members having a fun, memorable, and safe Greek experience. Included in the Annual Chapter Expectations Program (ACE),  are educational opportunities for chapters to host conversations with their members on topics related to risk management and harm reduction.

Dates and topics can be found on the FSL calendar.
