Why Join?

Vigil light with RMC students

Membership in a fraternity or sorority offers college students unparalleled academic, community and leadership development experiences. While it is fashionable for the media to highlight negative stereotypes and focus on an occasional misdeed, the reality is membership remains a positive influence for individuals, colleges and communities. On an inter/national level, three associations oversee 101 fraternities and sororities with 750,000 undergraduate members at 12,000 chapters.

At R-MC 4 sororities and 8 fraternities offer a values-based experience to individuals that share a commitment to providing you an opportunity for:

A home away from home

Joining a fraternity or sorority helps you adjust to living away from home. The bond you will have with your fellow brothers and sisters will last a lifetime and it will provide an easy way to network.

Making the grades

Each fraternity and sorority provides some form of scholastic assistance, such as, study areas, tutoring, awards, study sessions and incentives such as scholarships, to challenge members to reach their full academic potential. Fraternity and sorority members usually maintain a higher grade point average than their non-Greek counterparts.


Members learn to work within these their chapter and positions within each chapter are elected to manage the day-to-day operations of the organization. Fraternities and sororities provide a solid foundation in leadership training that prepares members for the demands and responsibilities needed for the future.

Giving back to the community

No other segment of the student population has dedicated more time and resources, or has raised more money for charity than the members of our fraternity and sorority community. From volunteering in elementary schools, to giving blood, to raising money for important causes, R-MC fraternities and sororities prepare members for a lifetime of community involvement.

Have fun

For many students, the social component of membership helps to make college a more fulfilling experience. Fraternities and sororities provide a calendar of social activities including formals, homecoming, step shows, Lip-Sync competitions, and other special events. Sororities and fraternities can offer more of a family atmosphere and go beyond ordinary friendships - often lasting a lifetime.
