Texas Tech University fraternities and sororities strive for academic excellence and developing the scholastic achievement of their members. The all-Greek grade point average is consistently higher than the all-university grade point average. To help members succeed academically, fraternities and sororities have well-established scholarship programs. These programs include resources, such as study hall sessions, time management workshops, academics advisors, tutoring programs, and more. Fraternities and sororities reward high academic achievement in many ways, such as scholarships, awards, and recognition banquets. There are also all-Greek honor societies to recognize the academic achievements of fraternity and sorority members.
The community offers numerous opportunities to gain valuable leadership experience.
Fraternities and sororities also encourage their members to become involved in numerous
campus activities. This enables their members to learn leadership
skills by being involved in a large, multifaceted organization. Today's employers and graduate schools search for the type of individual who not only excelled in academics, but is also well-rounded through active involvement on campus. The Greek community offers students an excellent opportunity to meet and exceed these standards set by employers and graduate schools.
Brotherhood and Sisterhood
Brotherhood and sisterhood are the foundations of the fraternity and sorority experience. Every individual in a fraternity or sorority contributes to this value. Students will form friendships unlike any they will experience in other campus organizations. Brotherhood or sisterhood is not conformity. No fraternity or sorority at Tech is made up of members who are exactly alike. The FSL community benefits from the rich diversity of the Tech campus, which is what makes the fraternity or sorority experience so valuable.
By interacting with people from various cultural, religious, and racial backgrounds,
members are better prepared to face the challenges of life after college.
Joining a fraternity or sorority will enable members to have a more productive and more rewarding experience as Red Raiders. The fraternity or sorority will become a home away from home, and students will find that brotherhood or sisterhood extends well beyond their undergraduate years.
Community service and philanthropy play an important role in the Texas Tech University fraternities and sororities. These projects give students a chance to contribute and give back to Texas Tech University and Lubbock. All fraternities and sororities have national philanthropic organizations that they support locally. Fraternities and sororities also collaborate in community service projects that benefit local charities throughout the year.
Texas Tech University Fraternity and Sorority chapters offer diverse experiences for their members. Chapters engage in critical conversations about inclusion, diversity and challenging inequalities by exposing members to opportunities they may not otherwise experience. The community welcomes all students to join our variety of chapters, which provide a vast array of opportunities to help each individual student succeed at Texas Tech University.
