Fraternity & Sorority Education
Throughout the academic year the office of Fraternity & Sorority Life provides education opportunities to our students through new member seminars, leadership retreats, and specialized workshops. Education opportunities involve the career center, health services, public affairs, police, academic advising, and many more other campus resources. See the list below for our upcoming education opportunities:
Individual Chapter Training

New Member Education
Every quarter there is a new member education program for those individuals who accept their bids from Recruitment. New Member Education programs must include four tenets: leadership development, sexual assault prevention, alcohol & drug use/misuse, and brotherhood/sisterhood. Programs will vary per quarter and has/will include, but not limited to: girl-on-girl bullying, Safer presentations to chapters, workshops, educational sessions, speakers, and more.
Boosting Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students (BACCHUS) is a collegiate peer education program that supports the achievement of students’ academic and personal success by building skills in student leaders to address campus health and safety issues.
With our partnership with the Health Center's Peers Understanding Listening Supporting Educating (PULSE), fraternities and sororities are BACCHUS trained to help educate their chapter members and community about campus safety, health, and how to hold each other accountable.
