Being a member of a fraternity or sorority will help your family member to...
Fraternities and sororities @ UNM provide encouragement for students during college. Greek study tables at Zimmerman library and chapter academic programs help to support students in academic endeavors.
With a diverse array of organizations to choose from, ranging from national, international, local, and multicultural groups, fraternities and sororities represent the rich diversity of UNM. We break the stereotype of sororities and fraternities by being the largest multi-faceted organization on campus.
The Greek community @ UNM believes in social responsibility and ensures that fraternity and sorority members will be educated on wellness issues. Contrary to some fraternity and sorority stereotypes, the Greek community strives for a balance of academic achievement and socially responsible behavior.
Hazing is prohibited; it’s against the law, and @ UNM it’s enforced...it’s just that simple! We have a full-time professional staff member who lives in the Greek housing area and we do numerous presentations and educational workshops on hazing. Greeks @ UNM have found that true friendship never forms by hazing.
A national study shows that fraternity and sorority members tend to graduate more often than non-Greeks. Not only do Greeks graduate at a higher rate, they also continue to give back to the community after graduation in higher rates than non-Greeks. All of the extra programming on academic support as well as the personal encouragement by members helps to ensure that your family member will be successful.
