A fraternity or sorority is a value-based organization, made up of a group of individuals with similar interests and living within the bonds of ritual, brotherhood/sisterhood, and common goals.
Women’s fraternities are often referred to as sororities. Fraternities and sororities are referred to as “Greek Letter” organizations because their names are combinations of Greek letters. These letters serve as a reminder of the values of the group.
The bonds between a Greek organization’s members are created through ritual in which all members participate. These rituals are almost always “secret”, but all rituals are based on common principles such as knowledge, truth, friendship, and honor. These principles are often found in the motto and creed of the specific Greek organization.
In addition to rituals, Greek organizations work to integrate and instill these principles in their members through all their activities and through daily life.
The University of Tulsa currently has 15 chapters that are part of national organizations and are overseen not only by local leaders and The University of Tulsa, but also by their National headquarters. All of our chapters stress the importance of scholarship, leadership, and service, and we find that all of our chapters live up to the high standards set forth by their founding fathers/mothers.
