The fraternity and sorority community understands that students attend UW-La Crosse for academics first. Each chapter at UW-La Crosse has a required grade point average for members to uphold in order to be in good standing with their organization. Each chapter provides various academic support services for their members. Each chapter has an elected officer or chair in charge of overseeing their brothers or sisters academic progress and to serve as a resource to connect members to services on campus.
Involvement in fraternity or sorority life provides members with numerous opportunities to get involved on campus and in the UW-L community. Every chapter elects or appoints officers to their chapter in a variety of roles, providing opportunities for both experienced and emerging leaders. Additionally, members have the opportunity to serve on the fraternity (Interfraternity Council) and sorority (Panhellenic Council) governing boards. Fraternity and sorority members at UW-La Crosse are involved in a number of other student organizations, volunteer with several community agencies, and have individual jobs and internships.
Giving back to the campus and local community is an integral part of being a fraternity and sorority member. Each chapter at UW-La Crosse is very involved with different community agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club, highway clean-up, American Cross blood drive, and more! As well as service requirements, every chapter has a National philanthropy that they strive to raise awareness and funds for (check out the chapter’s page for information on their philanthropies).
Joining a fraternity or sorority provides members opportunities to make great friendships and network with members across the community. Joining a chapter provides members with a built-in support system at UW-La Crosse. The trials and tribulations members face throughout their collegiate experience with their brothers and sisters will result in friendships that last far beyond the college years.
