The fall provides many wonderful opportunities for new and returning students to get involved on campus. Our three governing councils are hosting several events that will help students better understand what fraternity and sorority life is and how to join.
On Sunday, August 19th at 1:00pm, Fraternity and Sorority Life is hosting FSL 101 in the Plaster Student Union Theater. This program will give students the opportunity to learn more about membership in a fraternity or sorority and how to join. Several of our chapters will also have tables at New Student Festival at 3:00pm that day in the Plaster Student Union.
