Student Life

Fraternities and Sororities

Our Greek community has played a role on campus since the early days of the College and today, fraternity and sorority membership makes up roughly 20 percent of the student population. This rich tradition offers students opportunities to develop a strong network of current  students and alumni,  to serve the local community, and to participate in leadership development.

Benefits of Joining 

Leadership

Members of fraternities and sororities have the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills by filling a variety of roles within and outside of their organizations. Currently, members of Lake Forest College Student Government, Student Programming Board, Student Ambassadors, academic honor societies, varsity athletes, and many other campus groups are also members of fraternities and sororities. Not only are these students members of organizations outside their chapter, but they can hold positions within their organizations. These experiences provide chapter members with the knowledge, skills, and experience for success in post-collegiate life. 

 

Scholarship

Fraternity and sorority members take pride in their scholastic achievements. All of our chapters place emphasis on encouraging high academic achievement, as well as developing and maintaining development and support plans for each member. Each organization has a minimum grade point average members must achieve to stay in good standing with the chapter.

Service

Each Greek-letter organization at Lake Forest College serves the campus community and the surrounding Lake County community. Each year, chapters donate hundreds of dollars and time to local organizations and national philanthropies. 

Social 

The Lake Forest College fraternity and sorority community provides various social events that help to welcome new members and unify the Greek community. Individually, chapters host formals, retreats, and fundraising activities. Many chapters participate in campus wide traditions such as Week of Welcome, Homecoming, and Winterfest. All events strive to create a strong, unified community for all members.
