Fraternity & Sorority Life
Fraternity and Sorority Life is one of the many campus involvement opportunities at Lenoir-Rhyne University. Greek letter organizations foster leadership, provide academic support for their members, promote friendship, host social activities and community service events, and encourage philanthropic contributions. Students develop a strong sense of belonging to their organization and loyalty to LRU through the Fraternity and Sorority Community. Membership is lifelong, and alumni activities are numerous.
All students are invited to participate in intake, recruitment, and rush. First year students must have a high school GPA of a 3.0 or higher. While sophomores, juniors, or seniors must have a GPA of a 2.5 or higher.
In the 2018-2019 academic year members of Fraternity and Sorority Life raised over $14,000 for local and national philanthropies and completed over 2,000 hours of community service.
Once a student gets involved in one of the sororities or fraternities, they have opportunities for leadership development through programs such as President’s Roundtable Academy, and community service. At the end of each year, LRU celebrates all the Greek organizations by coming together for the annual Ellis Boatman Greek Awards.
The purpose of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Lenoir-Rhyne University is to uplift individual growth through enhancing the University experience. Organizations promote a sense of belonging and lasting relationships while instilling important values. Participants in these efforts focus on leadership, philanthropy, and scholastic excellence to support the campus and local community.
