Potential New Member Orientation: Parent Edition

OFSA 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.

OFSA Parent & Family Orientation (August 2020)



What is the role of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs (OFSA)?

OFSA works with students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and other invested constituents to enhance the development of Lehigh University students through Greek membership. Our staff works with fraternity and sorority members to provide support and educational, cultural, and leadership development programs which meet their needs beyond the classroom.

What are the benefits of fraternity or sorority membership?

Fraternities and sororities provide multiple opportunities for personal and professional development on a regional and national level. An investment in fraternity or sorority membership provides academic support, leadership experiences, life-long friendship, career networking, civic engagement opportunities, and the benefits of life-long affiliation. For more information about our chapters, please refer to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs website.

Will students be required to live in a fraternity and sorority facility?

All students affiliated with a residential chapter, will be required to live in that on campus fraternity or sorority facility. Should you have any questions about this expectation, contact the Office of Housing Services at 610-758-3500 prior to joining a fraternity or sorority.
