How does Fraternity/Sorority membership help reinforce or create a sense of civic responsibility and service to others?
Every school year Fraternity/Sorority men and women give hundreds of hours of service and raise thousands of dollars to support many different worthy causes. Most chapters support both local charities and their national organization’s philanthropy. For some local projects, the involvement by the Clemson Fraternity/Sorority community is the largest single instance of volunteer participation in their programs. Clemson fraternities and sororities work with such causes and programs as: Habitat for Humanity, WORTHhouse, Helping Hands of Clemson, and different school mentoring and tutoring programs, to name a few. It is hard to drive for very long in the Clemson area without driving on a road “adopted” by a Fraternity/Sorority organization. Clemson Fraternity/Sororitys have made and continue to make a difference, both on and off campus, through organized service and dedicated philanthropy. What about the stories I see on the evening news about fraternities and sororities around the country?
