Pillars

The fraternity and sorority community makes academic success a top priority as everyone is here for a quality education. The community upholds the belief of academics first, as many of the chapters have academic expectations for their members to uphold.   Related activities include but are not limited to study hours, study groups, and academic planning.  The overall FSL GPA was a 3.33 compared to the 3.19 for the campus as of Spring 2021 

One of the most gratifying aspects of fraternity and sorority membership is the sense of satisfaction and pride that comes with involvement in service. Fraternity and sorority students and alumni throughout North America recognize local and national organizations are in need of aid by donating time to service projects.   Related activities include but are not limited to highway cleanups, sorting items at local food pantries, and walking dogs for ASCMV.  In the 2020-2021 academic year, the FSL community contributed over 2,300 hours to service. 

On campus, fraternity and sorority members have proven themselves as empowered, strong campus leaders. Many of the members in our community hold leadership positions in several organizations outside of the fraternity or sorority in which they are a member. Also, fraternity and sorority chapters are self-governing bodies in which the members take on the responsibilities of running the organization, which makes fraternity and sorority life a special living and learning environment. The hands-on experience of holding a position in the chapter helps members develop leadership, organizational, and communication skills. Fraternity and sorority members learn the importance of dedication, working with others, responsibility and self-reliance. In addition, there are many leadership opportunities within the fraternity and sorority community apart from those within each chapter.   Related activities include but are not limited to council executive officer positions, chapter executive or cabinet officer positions, and other student organization leadership roles.  Every chapter at NMSU encourages their members to be involved in at least one organization outside of the fraternity and sorority community. 

The fraternity and sorority community is strongly united and growing in numbers. Members of fraternity and sorority organizations form sustained relationships with other students that last a lifetime. In a way, a fraternity or sorority is a family that is formed through common experience and a strong connection to one another. Membership offers a network of support while students are making the transition to college life.  Related unity activities include but are not limited to Big and Little mentorship programs, All Greek socials, the painting of A mountain, and Greek Week.  In the 2020-2021 academic year our community grew to over 390 members.
