WHY JOIN A FRATERNITY?
Fraternity life at Cameron University offers experiences that are life-lasting and don't just stop when you finish school. You will learn how to get along with people, how to develop goals and evaluate your performance, how to achieve academically, and establish friendships along the way. The things you learn from participating in co-curricular activities are just as important as your academic education. The fraternities at CU can offer you these opportunities and much more.
Social Excellence - The mission of the fraternity system is to prepare students for a life of social excellence. Being socially excellent means that one is actively engaged in seeking meaningful relationships with all of those whom he comes in contact with. A socially excellent individual displays a firm commitment to civic engagement, while working to create the best possible society.
Brotherhood - Brotherhood is the basis of the fraternity system. A fraternity offers a sense of belonging as it connects those men who best exemplify the values of social excellence with one another. A fraternity offers a unique outlet for personal growth and support and establishes everlasting friendships not found in other organizations.
Scholarship - Since the primary purpose of going to college is to obtain a college education, it is only natural that fraternities emphasize scholarship programs. Statistics show that 65% of all fraternity members graduate as compared to 47% of non-members and nationally the fraternity male GPA is significantly higher than the all male GPA.
Community Service - Fraternities at Cameron are not only concerned with the campus, but with the Lawton-Ft. Sill community as well. Community service projects are a vital source of personal satisfaction and build individual and fraternity character.
Leadership - The fraternity system builds leaders! They offer leadership roles in the chapter and encourage involvement in other campus organizations. Working closely with one's brothers stimulates the development of key interpersonal and teamwork skills that are critical to one's future success.
Career Development - A successful career can begin with the business and leadership experience gained in a fraternity. The many contacts with alumni and the listing of a fraternity on a resume have assisted many students in beginning their life's work.
