Message From The Director
Westminster College has a well-established history of Greek Life, dating to 1868. Participation in this heritage has afforded students ripe opportunities in leadership and involvement, both on-campus and within the greater Fulton community.
The Office of Student Activities has absorbed Greek Advising and Leadership Development, and we are in perfect position to advise, guide and counsel all students. Our campus is experiencing unprecedented growth and development, which is translating directly into better educational opportunities for our students. Student life, Greek and independent alike, is poised to move hand in hand with the College as it evolves.
Student members of Greek-letter organizations have lots of unique needs. Men and women in fraternities are accountable to far more constituencies than independent students; they occasionally require additional guidance in order to satisfy their national offices, alumni associations, governance bodies, housing corps, and of course colleges. Fraternities are consistently in the spotlight because of the unique role they play; I make it my work to be sure they use that spotlight as productively as they can.
Ultimately, however, the interests of students who choose to join one of our outstanding chapters are not terribly different from those of the students who elect to remain unaffiliated. While addressing the needs of these respective (and historically remarkably distinct) groups, we will have the opportunity to help foster a relationship between them that will ultimately strengthen the overall community. As choices continue to result in more of a balance between Independent and Greek populations, the partnership between the two will emerge as more important each year.
