What does it mean for my son to join a Fraternity

Fraternities provide students with life-long benefits. A Fraternity can offer your son a home away from home while he is at school and studies show that students involved in Greek organizations increase students’ chances of graduating from college and their success in college by providing them with leadership, service, scholarship, and networking opportunities.


Academics are a top priority for all fraternities at Ohio State. Fraternity men achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.32, and all members are required to have a 2.5 cumulative GPA. Many fraternities and the IFC have created scholarship programs for current members and incoming freshman.


Fraternities provide young men with an opportunity to work together towards common ideals. Your son will have the opportunity to fill leadership roles to improve both his fraternity and the university. All fraternities strive to teach their member’s leadership skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.

Community Service

Thousands of dollars and hours are donated by Fraternities to a variety of causes. Fraternities provide their members with a great opportunity to find service opportunities for causes they are passionate about.
