Community Service
Giving to the community and charitable organizations is a top priority among the Greeks at Texas State!

Who is actually in charge?

Student members elect their own officers who oversee the operation of the chapter on the college campus. The University requires all fraternities and sororities to have a Faculty/Staff Advisor to work with the chapter, this is in addition to an Alumni Advisor that is appointed by the organizations (inter)national office. The Dean of Students office also has three full-time staff members who work with the chapters and their governing bodies to make sure they are getting the most from their experience in a safe manner.


If you have any additional questions or would like to speak to someone in person, please contact the Greek Affairs office at (512) 245-JOIN (5646).
