same thread from the College Life forum but I wanted to know what some parents (maybe some Greek Life alumni!) have to say:
Saw this in the campus newspaper today:
Congratulations Fraternity And Sorority Life!
Fraternity and Sorority Life GPA - 3.15
Non-Affiliated Student GPA - 3.04
415 Fraternity/Sorority Students on President's List (4.0 GPA)
716 Fraternity/Sorority Students on Deans' List (3.5+)
(*I go to a school with 13,780 full-time undergraduates where 23% of girls join sororities and 17% of guys join fraternities)
I've seen this phenomenon at many schools where the push by the Greek Life office to join a fraternity/sorority is because the Greek Life GPA is higher than the Non-Greek Life GPA. I've been torn over whether to join a fraternity for several months now. Is there a secret to the higher GPA or is this just a case in which the non-Greek Life GPA is a bigger sample than the Greek Life-GPA?
