The Four Pillars of Excellence
The number one priority of the fraternity and sorority community is the scholarship and academic well-being of active and new members alike. A myriad of academic resources are at hand in the fraternity and sorority community, be it a file of class reviews, or simply the experienced advice of an older member. Fraternities and sororities provide academic scholarships and other financial incentives to members and recruit faculty, staff and alumni/alumnae mentors for academic guidance. By continually utilizing and expanding the academic resources available to fraternities and sororities, ETSU's Greek community will continue to accomplish academic success.
Leadership & Campus Involvement
From the Student Government Association (SGA) to Volunteer ETSU to intramural sports, well over 50 percent of the Greek community is involved in other student activities and organizations outside of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Many of these students hold high leadership positions and expand their opportunities to interact with other students, faculty, and staff in their everyday lives.

Service and Philanthropy
From monetary donations to over 15,000 hours of hands-on community service, the ETSU Greek community prides itself on the charitable work it performs for Johnson City/Washington County, surrounding areas, and the nation. Last year, Greeks participated in fund-raisers which provided more than $50,000 to organizations including the American Cancer Society, Children's Advocacy Center of Sullivan County, Children's Miracle Network, Ronald McDonald House, and Speedway Children's Charities among others.
Sisterhood and Brotherhood
Fraternities and sororities promote intimate relationship bonds and members typically refer to fellow members as "brothers" and "sisters." It is common for these groups to organize weekend retreats, alumni gatherings, and other opportunities to build friendships and camaraderie among all members. The social interaction that the Greek community provides its members serves as an arena to meet students and interact in a relaxed atmosphere.
