My fraternity is only about ten years old since it was first founded nationally. In those ten years, we have managed to only charter five chapters. What way do you think expanding would be successful and make this fraternity grow?
I am transferring to a school that does not have a chapter of my fraternity. I really want to stay in Greek Life but because I’m already initiated I’m not sure if I can join another fraternity. What can I do?
I go to a commuter school in the Midwest. People are all basically gone after 3-4 o’clock. My fraternity has about 22 guys, and we don’t have a house, even though we are the oldest fraternity on campus. We may have about 8 pledges this semester to give us 30. We need 45 for a house. How do we get people to join when, we don’t have a house?
An annual photo composite chronicles and visually displays your membership. This is an important part of your organization’s memories and history. Your group will want to select a composite company that you can depend on to provide you with the very best product for your money. Although cost is important, your decision should not be based on price alone. It is a decision that should be reached only after you have carefully considered everything you wish to see in your composite.
Around 3 a.m. on Sunday morning at Youngstown State University, a shooting occurred off campus at a private residence where members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity lived. Jamail E. Johnson, a senior at YSU and a member of the fraternity, died after being shot in the back of the head and legs. Police did not release the names of suspects, but two men were arrested and charged with one count of aggravated murder and 11 counts of felonious assault.

I want to start a new colony on my campus. I have an interest group and we are already acting like a fraternity. However, the IFC has denied our application to start a colony. What should we do?
I compiled these Greek Life statistics from ECU and Cornell’s Greek Life sites. Be sure to share these Greek Life Statistics with the men you are recruiting.
Obviously, it depends on the fraternity and the university. I have put together a quick list of points I would consider before making the decision.
Saturday morning, October 2nd, 2010 I awoke to one my brothers slinging my door wide open to drag me out of bed before we headed off to our regional conclave. I had been planning on going for a week, but a little after-hours recreation left me running a little behind schedule for the fraternal event 90 minutes away.
A lot of fraternity houses are going alcohol free. There are a few compelling reasons why this decision has been made. This is a controversial subject to many fraternity brothers, because there are some negative results form this policy. Below are my thoughts on both sides.
1) Wear your Greek letters proudly. This is the easiest, and one of the best, PR moves your fraternity can make. If you are a high-speed individual, and you wear your letters, then others will assume your fraternity is pretty high-speed because of your association.
Staying in touch with alumni is a challenge. Let’s be honest, it is a pain in the butt to write newsletters and make sure they get read. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to stay in touch with alumni with minimal effort?
Every fraternity should honor a girl as their fraternity sweetheart. It costs nothing to do, and will create a ton of goodwill for the fraternity.
