Fraternity and Sorority Experience Survey    

The Fraternity and Sorority Experience Survey (FSES) asks students what they think about their total fraternity and sorority experience. Participating institutions can use the FSES data to create chapter and council benchmarks as well as made critical decisions on where to focus programmatic and advising support to create healthier and safer chapters and communities.

The FSES provides customized insight about academic experiences, values, alcohol and drug use, social issues, bystander intervention, chapter operations, and community found in your institution’s fraternity and sorority experience. Additionally if school consortiums participate, results may identify your institution’s strengths and challenges among your peers. 

The aggregate FSES data is used to identify campuses with sound professional practices, thus furthering the value to not just a your campus community but to creating safe, successful and sustainable fraternities and sororities nationwide.
