Greek letter organizations comprise a large component of social life on the college campuses of present day.  They have transformed over the past decades and are largely representative of an ethnically, racially and culturally diverse student body.  Though they are notorious for their social aspect, Greek organizations serve a higher purpose.  They provide a unique support system to those who partake in membership that include campus life integration, personal identity validation, networking possibilities post-graduation, and more.  Focusing on minority Greek Letter Organizations, I explore how membership in such organizations impacts a student’s personal and academic success.
