TROY Greek Community • 3
Greek organizations are viewed as a network of support for men and women who are
going through similar experiences in life. Greek life is a great way to enhance the general
collegiate experience through brotherhood, sisterhood and friendship. Bonds of brotherhood
and sisterhood are formed within an organization and provide Troy University Greeks with
a home away from home, mentorship, career networking, and a sense of community at a
large university. Fraternity and sorority members enjoy lifelong bonds and connections
with friends that can provide support in life’s significant moments and celebration in life’s
successes. Brotherhood and sisterhood is an essential pillar of Greek life. Some of the
greatest friends come from those who share our letters.
Service is a meaningful pillar of fraternity and sorority involvement at Troy University. It
is perhaps the most personally rewarding of the pillars, as members are provided with
opportunities to participate in hands-on volunteer work and implement philanthropic events
to raise money for charitable organizations. The opportunities ensure that fraternity and
sorority members will have an impact on their community and develop a lifelong habit of
giving back. Troy University ‘s Greek chapters sponsor many events throughout the year
to serve and help the Troy community and national philanthropies.Troy University’s Greek
members completed countless community service hours and donated over $106,000 to
charity during the 2013 school year.
