You already know the impact Greek life has—because you lived it. The term ‘social fraternity’ might give the impression that the Greek experience is superficial. But research shows that personal connections and friendships are the key to happiness.  

These lifelong relationships are only part of what makes the fraternity experience so transformational. From our career trajectories to our family’s values, our Gamma-Psi experience played a key role. Our experiences helped make us into the people we are today.  

Here is an eBook of some of the best responses to recent a survey of Greek communities across the country. These quotes illustrate why Greek life is and will remain a key part of the higher education experience. Click HERE to read the eBook and keep reading to see what Gamma-Psi members had to say. 

“I think it was a lot of hard work but a great learning experience. That’s why I went to work for Lambda Chi Alpha as a chapter consultant. I think the fraternity experience is a worthy experience for a lot of reasons—for camaraderie, leadership building, and learning to deal with different types of people.” - Walt Keiper '85 

I had a fantastic experience in Lambda Chi Alpha at Lehigh. I was an only child, so fraternity life forced me to consider other perspectives, to embrace a shared purpose, and to seek compromise—all of which served me well later in life. I also learned how to be a leader at Lambda Chi, often just by watching the older brothers and listening. Most importantly, Lambda Chi deepened my experience of friendship and my appreciation for camaraderie. The friendships that I made at Lambda Chi are still important to me today” - John Compton ’84 

The leadership education was priceless. Also, learning about different backgrounds and appreciating our differences yet coming together to form a bond among the brothers and working toward the chapter goals.” - Bud Jenschke '74 

Fraternity life helped teach the life lesson of working hard and playing hard, while surrounding yourself with people you like and trust. This has for me been a guiding principle throughout life after college.” - Peter Lauer '82
