Being part of a fraternity or sorority is about more than joining a group or having fun—it's about leadership, service and lifelong friendships
Fraternity and sorority life at Simpson College fosters the education of the whole person: intellectually, socially and spiritually. Brotherhood and sisterhood, leadership, philanthropy and scholarship are just a few of the areas in which our fraternity and sorority community aspires to achieve excellence.
A sense of unity and friendship forms among members and alumni of an individual chapter, as well as among everyone in the same chapter across the nation. The bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood are forged throughout the member's active participation in the chapter and last for a lifetime.
