Exceptional Community Growth


This past year has seen unprecedented growth for Fraternity and Sorority Life. Through hard work during recruitment the community is on the rise.

The sorority community is blossoming as a result of recruitment. The women decided to try hosting formal recruitment on the weekend rather than during the school week in order to decrease class conflicts and promote retention. This choice did just that. The sorority population saw an 18% size increase in the past year and the average chapter size increased from 66 members to 71 members. Through the continued work of Panhellenic Council and the four sororities, this growth will likely continue.


The fraternity community is also prospering as a result of recruitment. Although the men do not have a formal recruitment process, their recruitment events were equally fruitful this year. The fraternity population saw a 13% increase leading to the average chapter size increasing from 45 members to 52 members. With the help of IFC and the continued collaboration between the seven fraternities, this growth should be sustained.


In total, the fraternity and sorority community saw a 15% increase in size, the largest growth the community has seen the several years. The community population size has risen to 650 members. This phenomenal community growth would not have been possible without the hard work of Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Erin MacDonald Peck.
