How to Join
Welcome from Vice President of Recruitment
Congratulations on your acceptance to Texas State University! We hope you are as excited as we are about the upcoming Fall 2019 semester. Fraternity life at Texas State is stronger than ever and we are encouraging you to be a part of it. Members of fraternal organizations are woven into almost every aspect of college life here at Texas State, including Student Government, Athletics,and Academic Honorary Organizations. Fraternity leaders strive to be the best in every field of study and activity.
Academics are the most important aspect of each fraternity on campus. After all, the primary purpose for attending a university is to further one’s education. That is why the minimum grade point average set by Interfraternity Council (IFC) to join a fraternity is a 2.7 high school GPA and 2.5 college GPA, and our member fraternity chapters must maintain a minimum of 2.7 GPA to stay in good standing with the IFC. This requirement is an effort to reinforce the importance of academics in the fraternity community.Community service and philanthropy are also major components of fraternity life on campus and in the San Marcos community. Every Greek organization has at least one, and in most cases many,philanthropic organizations they have committed to working with, assisting in creating better communities both locally and nationally.
By joining a fraternity, you have opportunities to be involved in life changing events, as well as making lifelong friendships. Personally, joining a fraternity was the best nonacademic decisions I have made since coming to Texas State. Membership has given me a better understanding of responsibility, an improved grasp of time management and I have learned how to respect and work well with others. Finally, I feel I have grown more in my first semester as a member of a fraternity than I did throughout my four years of high school.
If you are looking for a great college experience, as well as a way to improve your grades, and make lifelong friendships, I encourage you to check out each of our fraternities here at Texas State. If you have any questions please feel free to seek any of IFC’s officers out in the Fraternity and Sorority Life office, 4th Floor, LBJ Student Center or contact me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
