- Greek Life Handbook 2016-2017 (Includes Standards of Excellence)
The Greek Life Handbook is a resource guide for fraternities and sororities at Austin College. The valuable information provided in this handbook can be used to help each Greek organization better understand the expectations and requirements and to remain in good standing with Greek Council and the College. The material will hopefully answer most of the immediate questions that leaders and members of fraternities and sororities might have.
- Member Intake and Education Statement of Understanding
Austin College, along with its commitment to academic excellence, works to provide social activities for interested students. Social Greek organizations have been a part of Austin College history for 150+ years and Greek Life is seen as a deeply rooted, integral part of the campus, and Austin College experience.
These organizations contribute to the social and service life of everyone on campus, Greeks and independents alike. A Greek organization is chartered for the purpose of:
- Strengthening the educational program of Austin College,
- Furthering the concepts of service to others,
- Providing responsible leadership roles on the part of the members, and
- Promoting the social development of participating members.
