A primary focus for all fraternities and sororities is helping others. Members of Fraternity and Sorority Life participate in numerous hours of community service and local charitable projects. In addition to local community involvement, chapters participate in national philanthropic causes. During the 2016 - 2017 academic year, Southeastern Louisiana University's Fraternity and Sorority Life participated in more than 7,000 service hours and donated over $49,000 to local and national philanthropies.
The primary reason a student enrolls at Southeastern Louisiana University is to obtain a solid and diverse education. Fraternity and Sorority Life possesses resources and facilities that support high academic achievement and hold members accountable to scholastic success. Fraternities and sororities continually perform above all men's and all women's grade point average.
Students involved in fraternities and sororities make friends that will last a lifetime. These bonds often referred to as brotherhood or sisterhood, are hard to find in any other organization. In order to promote unity and friendship among Greeks all over campus, the Office for Student Engagement and the three governing councils host events in the Greek Village and the annual Greek Week.
