NAU fraternities and sororities pride themselves on upholding the four pillars of NAU Greek Life: Leadership, Service, Scholarship, and Social. Please select the links below to learn more about how our fraternity and sorority members gain valuable leadership skills, make connections on and off campus, strive for academic excellence, and provide service to the NAU and Flagstaff community.  

Leadership
Fraternity and sorority life offers men and women a variety of leadership opportunities.  Chapter members can be found in the Associated Student of Northern Arizona University (student government), on the Homecoming Committee, and receiving academic and leadership awards.  For members to achieve a well-rounded education, fraternities and sororities encourage active participation in a variety of leadership experiences.  Members can also participate in their chapters as an officer or on one of the committees each chapter maintains.  There are a wide array of positions available exclusively to fraternity and sorority members to help them learn, grow, and excel.
Service and Philanthropy
Service is a way of life for the NAU Greek community.  Each year NAU fraternities and sororities participate in community service and philanthropy events that impact individuals in the Flagstaff community and beyond.  On average, NAU fraternities and sororities raise nearly $50,000 per year for various local and national philanthropies and and complete over 15,000 hours of community service.  
Social
Fraternities and sororities build a bond of brotherhood/sisterhood unmatched by any other student organization on campus. Each chapter has its own social events, which typically include formals, date parties, brotherhood/sisterhood events, family weekend, and a variety of other events. Each chapter follows a risk management policy from their national headquarters, their governing council, as well as all of the polices of NAU. The spirit of our Greek Life community makes our campus feel like a home away from home. Regardless of the chapter you join, the friendships that are formed are lifelong. It is with these friends that members participate in memorable chapter activities, philanthropies, study groups, and social events.
Scholarship & Grades

Fraternity and sorority chapters strive for the development of scholastic excellence among their entire membership. Many chapters require a minimum grade point average for potential members to be considered for membership. Initiated members must also continue to meet the minimum GPA requirements for his or her chapter in order to remain an active member. In order to insure that members are academically successful, chapters provide study halls, educational programs, tutoring, and awards and scholarships.
