Greek Life: A philanthropic life

Thursday, September 28, 2006

Every year the nine sororities and fraternities at SCSU – Greek Life – donate tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours to charities and non-profit agencies. During the 2005-06 school year, Greeks:

  • Raised approximately $34,000 by co-sponsoring philanthropic events and $10,000 for philanthropies chosen by individual chapters.
  • Gave more than 4,000 hours to volunteer service projects.

Among the many organizations that benefited from Greek Life activity were Toys for Tots, Hole-In-The-Wall Camps, American Red Cross, Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, American Diabetes Association, Anna Marie’s Shelter and March of Dimes.

Greek Life is one of the largest student organizations at SCSU with 270 members in five fraternities and four sororities. Members work together for academic achievement, for philanthropy, to serve the community and for personal and social growth.
