Potential New Member Orientation: Parent Edition
FSL has partnered with LaunchPoint to offer a parent orientation module written by parents, for parents to better understand fraternity and sorority life. This program was developed to help parents of PNMs learn about the recruitment process, better understand the experience of being Greek, know the questions to ask their children throughout the process and much more. Any Lehigh parent can complete this program.
