Values and Principles
As members of fraternities and sororities, we recognize and accept that the primary mission of the University of New Haven is to provide excellence in undergraduate education. We accept the role of our organizations in supporting this mission. While respecting the particular goals and values of our individual chapters, we contribute to the University mission by providing our members with distinct opportunities to enhance scholarship, friendship, character, leadership.
The Greek Community prides itself on its deep commitment to community service and philanthropic events that are organized by groups and individuals. Fraternities and sororities contribute a great deal of hands-on service to the surrounding community and are also responsible for fundraising efforts that benefit national charitable organizations.
While education is the main purpose for attending UNH, many students realize that college life involves a delicate balance between academics and social activities. Social events within the Greek community offer members a break from the daily routine of class and work. The opportunity to meet new friends is increased in the social programming provided by fraternities and sororities. Some examples include Greek Week, Intramural Sports, Alumni Events and Formals.
Brotherhood and Sisterhood
Being Greek offers the chance for individuals who share common interests to form a cohesive group. It is often said that, in college, friendships are developed that will last a lifetime. Fraternities and sororities pave the way towards these long-lasting friendships. You will meet people from different backgrounds and areas of the country. The chapter fosters these friendships and is a great place to call home during your college years. Being Greek presents opportunities to make friends that will always be an important part of your life.
