Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Greek organization?
A Greek organization is a group of individuals with similar interests that are bonded together by common goals and aspirations. It is referred to as a Greek organization because the name consists of Greek letters.
How much does it cost?
Both the chapter (on the local level) and the national office collect dues and membership fees from every member. Most groups have a one-time pledge and initiation fee, plus reoccurring dues on a semester-by-semester basis. The majority of the dues collected is used to pay for national insurance, while the remainder is to cover operating expenses.
Do Greek organizations take up a lot of time?
Fraternity/sorority membership requires anywhere from 2 to 8 hours a week. Whether it be participating in community service projects, planning events or attending regular weekly meetings, members will learn to manage their time wisely with other commitments. Many of our members are students who have made their respective Dean’s Lists/honor rolls, work multiple jobs/internships, and balance time with other friends. We believe these skills are why so many of our members have succeeded in their lives beyond their undergraduate career.
How will joining Sigma Psi Zeta affect my GPA?
We make academic success a priority for our members. We monitor GPAs both nationally and locally to ensure that members achieve what they came to college to do: learn. We have many members that consistently make their university Dean’s Lists/honor rolls and whom also earn their highest GPAs as members of Sigma Psi Zeta.
Does Sigma Psi Zeta haze?
No. Sigma Psi Zeta has a strict non-hazing policy and hazing would also be in violation of many university policies. Our organization’s national philanthropy is to combat violence against women and hazing would directly contradict this effort.
