COVID-19 Response

Due to COVID-19, there are many changes to our recruitment procedures, and other in-person events, for all of our member organizations. If interested in joining any of our member organizations, we encourage you to review each of our Council's pages to get more information on what their intake/recruitment processes will look like for this coming year.

It should be noted that each organization may have a unique recruitment approach. While the Fraternity & Sorority Life Office will be able to answer general questions, we recommend that interested students and their parents reach out to the individual chapters to get more information.

The following guidelines have been created to help guide student organizations actions through the Fall 2020 semester. The goal of the guidelines is to minimize opportunities that could cause spread of COVID-19 and keep our students and campus safe as we navigate this experience.

While these are guidelines, students are reminded that as a registered student organization and members of the SFA community they are required to follow the guidance of both university policy and state and local laws. The guidelines may change as further health and safety guidelines are updated.

Director of Student Engagement Programs, Lacey Folsom has created a video reviewing the guidelines for your convenience.

In addition, the following document has been created to help guide your decision making. Please check out the 8 S's of Safety here: 8 S's of Safety

The Office of Student Engagement has made a Frequently Asked Questions document that may also help address your specific questions: Covid-19 Org FAQ

Welcome to Fraternity & Sorority Life!

On behalf of the Stephen F. Austin State University Fraternity & Sorority Life community, we invite you to learn more about what being a Greek Lumberjack is all about!

Fraternities and sororities provide students with opportunities for personal growth and the development of interpersonal skills. Scholarship, service, cultural appreciation, brotherhood/sisterhood are common fraternal principles of each of our fraternities and sororities. College students have the option to challenge themselves in a supportive atmosphere, where they learn new skills to enrich their life experience and prepare them for career challenges and fulfilling relationships.

Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifetime commitment, a commitment that will benefit you now and in the future. The Greek Life community at SFA has so much to offer you. It's comprised of chapters that are individually unique, but together, they create a complete and united community. We encourage you to explore Greek Life and all it has to offer!

Our Mission Statement

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life strives to create transformative leadership opportunities in a learner-centered environment which promotes academic excellence, service to others, cultural awareness and inclusion and lasting relationships with the University, other fraternal organizations, alumni and surrounding community.
