Greek Life

We are excited that you have chosen to begin your college career at Georgia Southwestern State University. During this fun and exciting time in your life there will be plenty of activities for you to get involved in. One of these areas is Greek Life. The Greek System as a whole has been found on college campuses for over a hundred years.

When determining whether or not to go Greek, there are 6 basic principles that the Greek system participates in. These principles are: Philanthropy, Leadership, Athletics, Scholarship, Social, and Brotherhood/Sisterhood. Each of these principles is important to the Greek System and each organization stands behind these ideals.
