Fraternity & Sorority Life @ UW-STOUT

Welcome to Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) at University of Wisconsin-Stout! We are thrilled to know that you are interested in learning more about our community and what it has to offer future and current students at UW-Stout. Fraternities and sororities have been part of our campus life since 1952. Today we are proud to have ten value-based chapters founded on the principles of scholarship, leadership, friendship, and service.

 

In total, there are around 350 students involved in FSL on our campus. Although this is a small percentage of UW-Stout's student body, fraternities and sororities have a lot to offer students and the local community through educational programs, social activities, philanthropic projects, and leadership development opportunities.

 
1 - Service
Each fraternity and sorority has a philanthropy or a set of philanthropies that chapter members are dedicated to raising awareness and funding for. Most chapters have a philanthropic fundraiser event each semester to increase awareness and show passion for their philanthropy and its mission. You can read about each chapter’s chosen philanthropy in their individual chapter profiles below. In addition to giving service to selected philanthropies, members of fraternities and sororities also participate in events that give back to the local community including an annual All-Greek Community Clean-up, Stepping Stones, and Special Olympics.
2 - Academics
Students at University of Wisconsin-Stout are here first and foremost to attain an education that will provide a foundation for their future. The members of the fraternities and sororities at UW-Stout are no different and each chapter strives to provide an environment that supports academic growth and achievement. Each chapter on our campus has a required GPA for members to join that must be maintained to be in good standing within their organization. A variety of academic support services are provided by individual chapters including study hours, mentorship programs, and a variety of educational programs throughout the academic year.
3 - Leadership
There are countless leadership positions available to members of fraternities and sororities including officer and chair positions in the individual chapters as well as the opportunity to represent individual chapters and serve the entire fraternity and sorority community as a member of Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council, the governing bodies for Fraternity/Sorority Life. Through their involvement in their individual chapters, many members have been able to get connect and get involved in a number of other activities on campus and throughout the community including other student organizations, volunteering with community agencies, and employment.
4 - Friendship
Being part of a fraternity or sorority allows members to develop relationships that create a sense of family and a “home away from home” atmosphere while attending UW-Stout. Members often have a difficult time describing the strong bonds they have with their brothers and/or sisters in their organization – most would describe the bond comparable to a close family that is willing to celebrate and support one another through life’s significant moments while in college and long after graduation. Being involved in a fraternity or sorority allows opportunities for mentorship, career networking, and a great sense of community on campus and beyond.

Considering Sorority or Fraternity Life?
Recruitment happens during the first few weeks of each academic semester, each chapter does “rush” or recruitment a bit differently. 
 
Fraternities
Each fraternity conducts recruitment differently. For more information about fraternity recruitment, please email the Inter-Fraternity Council
Sororities
During the fall semester, women interested in joining a national sorority go through Panhellenic Formal Recruitment. Formal Recruitment allows potential new members to meet the three national sororities several times over a period of two weeks. Information regarding Panhellenic Formal Recruitment can be found at the Panhellenic Council Portal. Spring recruitment is not sponsored by Panhellenic and each sorority does their own separate events. More information on Spring Recruitment can be found on individual websites. Please note that there are a limited number of spots during Spring Recruitment.
Women interested in joining out local sorority, Phi Theta Chi, may contact them directly below.
