Parents & Families


Parents and families play a key role in supporting the development of fraternity and sorority members. This page should be a resource to you if your student is looking to get involved in the fraternity and sorority community and if you want to learn more about the membership experience.

The University of Rochester appreciates the role fraternities and sororities play in the lives of students and is proud of the accomplishments of our award-winning students and organizations. Fraternity and Sorority Affairs provides fraternities and sororities the tools to be autonomous organizations while having a values-based experience and contributing to the quality of campus life. Through our hallmark Expectations for Excellence program, members seek opportunities to be integrated and invested in campus life while connecting with programs and services to enhance their own experience.
