The fraternity or sorority experience at Kettering University is multifaceted and offers numerous opportunities to your child. Joining a Greek organization opens up the opportunity to create lifelong friendships with not only those in their organization, but with other chapters as well. Becoming a member of a Greek organization also gives a sense of community and a support system. Developing lifelong friendships with the members in an organization and other chapters helps make the campus seem even smaller. For many members, these organizations become a home away from home.
In addition to the brotherhood or sisterhood, every chapter is dedicated to enhancing leadership skills, academic success, giving back to local and national charities, developing financial responsibility, and providing networking opportunities with Greek alumni around the country. When your student joins a Greek organization, they become a lifelong member and reap the benefits of these opportunities well beyond their college years. Also, if your child joins a chapter soon after starting college, the transition process can be made easier by having an instant connection to upperclassmen and various resources within the organization.
It will be up to your child to determine the level of involvement they want to have within the organization and what kind of experience it will be for them.
