During their time at Geneseo, your student will encounter many opportunities to become involved outside of their classroom experience. It is important that you, the parent, be educated about the enriching experience that your son or daughter will find by being involved in a fraternity or sorority.

Portrayals of Greek life in the media, on television and in movies, can be misleading by showcasing extreme examples of fraternity and sorority misconduct. What the media will not tell you is that there are many life-long benefits to membership in fraternities and sororities.

Membership in a fraternity or sorority offers students a close group of friends, to serve as a family away from home. As a life-long member of a fraternity or sorority, students are offered the opportunity to develop as leaders, serve the local community, and focus on academics, as well as their careers, by connecting with local alumni members of Greek organizations.


Should you have any questions or concerns about Greek life at Geneseo feel free to contact the Inter-Greek Council at, or the Assistant Dean of Students for Fraternal Life, Wendi Kinney, at or 585-245-5968.
