  • Over 85% of the student leaders on some 730 campuses are involved in the Greek community.
  • Since 1825, all but eight U.S. Presidents have been fraternity men. Today, 76% of all U.S. Congress men and women are Greek.
  • Approximately 85% of the top executives of Fortune 500 companies belong to a fraternity or sorority.
  • Students who join Greek organizations are more likely to return to school the following year.
  • A U.S. Government study shows that over 70% of all those who join a fraternity/sorority graduate, while under 50% of all non-Greek persons graduate.
  • 850,500 hours are annually volunteered by Greeks across the country.
  • Greeks raise over $7 million for charity every year.
