Fraternity & Sorority Life

SILD logo

A fraternity or sorority can help personalize your child’s college experience by offering a scholastic support system, hands-on experience in leading committees, exposure to potential careers through discussions with alumni, the chance to give back to the community through service projects, and close friends that will support them when times are tough.  With all these opportunities available to them, it is no wonder that fraternity and sorority members tend to graduate from college at a higher rate than those men and women not involved in fraternities or sororities.

Because of these opportunities, we encourage you to engage your student in a conversation about their intentions to participate in Fraternity and Sorority Life.  We are committed to ensuring that Fraternity and Sorority Life at Northern Illinois University remains a positive and healthy component of student life.  Please feel free to contact us for any additional information or concerns you may have pertaining to Fraternity and Sorority Life.  We look forward to your continued partnership with us in support of student success.
