For those who were thinking about going Greek, Welcome Week was the place to be. Members of the IUS fraternities and sororities provided information about how students can be a part of their organizations.

“When I started college, I wasn’t really involved in anything here at school,” Luis Soteleo, biochemistry senior, said. “One of my classmates told me about Tau Kappa Epsilon and got me involved in the organization.”

The organization has 29 active members and has been involved in community activities like the American Food Drive and Crusade for Children with Jefferson Fire Department.

The fraternities are not the only ones who are trying to make a difference on campus. There are also sororities—like Alpha Phi—who are doing their share of volunteer work around the campus and local area.

“I met some of the girls and felt an instant bond,” Anna Loose, fine arts sophomore, said. “We do all sorts of things like volunteering at the animal shelter.”

With an active membership of 20, Alpha Phi are more than just a group of friends, they are sisters.

In order to be a part of this strong sisterhood there are some qualifications that candidates must meet.

“I had to make sure that I had a 2.5 GPA and was able to get along with the other members,” Rachel Martinson, accounting and marketing junior, said.

“I’ve now been an active member with this organization for two years,” she said.
