Information for Parents

Especially for Parents

When parents learn that their college student is considering membership in a Greek-letter organization on campus, it is common for the questions to start multiplying in their minds. We, as the Staff of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, realize this, and we encourage you and your family to use this website as an educational resource.

We want you to feel comfortable with the information presented here so that you can support the well-informed decisions your student will make about whether or not to participate in Greek Life.

Welcome to the Community

As your student makes his or her decision about membership, remember that this is an extremely exciting decision. The fraternity and sorority community here at Penn State University was established over a century ago. Penn State Greek Life is rooted in tradition, philanthropy and service, and today's students are still proud to participate.

Please allow Dr. Baker, director of fraternity and sorority life, to extend a personal welcome to you while you learn more about our community. If you don't know where to begin, start reading the Parents' Manual to Greek Life at Penn State first.

There is a lot of valuable information posted here for your reference. However, feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns that are not answered here.
