Welcome Parents!

Today's fraternities and sororities might surprise you!

National research completed by the Center of Advanced Social Research at the University of Missouri shows that membership in a fraternity of sorority is beneficial.

Students who join fraternities and sororities are 28% more likely to return to school the following year. Following graduation, Greek-affiliated alumni often secure employment closely matching their career path due to alumni networking opportunities. 

At Linfield College, our four fraternities have chapter housing, which students can count towards their College residency requirement. Our four sororities do not have chapter housing but do have dedicated meeting spaces in our residence halls.

Our Greek Chapters are also committed to providing an hazing free experience that serves to cultivate and develop their members.
