The first and foremost priority of Rhodes College students is academic achievement, and helping members achieve this goal is a primary objective of the Fraternity and Sorority Community. Being a member of the Greek community has helped many students adapt to the scholastic and social challenges posed by life at Rhodes. Currently, over half of Rhodes Student are part of the Greek system. Many members of our Greek community express a sense of connection with members of their organization as well as others outside of the Greek community. In addition to finding a home away from home, members of our Greek community gain valuable leadership skills, raise money for charities, volunteer countless hours of service, and frequently exceed the all campus average GPA. Students involved in Greek organizations have many opportunities to showcase their hidden talents as well. Whether it's dancing, singing, stepping, intramural sports, planning major events, or engaging in social initiatives students involved in fraternities and sororities have plenty of opportunities to explore their extracurricular talents.
