2013-14 Greek Life Brochure - page 7

One of the most rewarding aspects of being involved in
Fraternity and Sorority Life at BSC is participating in service
and philanthropic events organized by individual chapters
and the Greek community as a whole. Working together
on such projects not only benefits worthy causes, but also
fosters personal growth and greater unity among individual
members. Activities include Halloween on the Hilltop,
Habitat for Humanity, Up ’Til Dawn, tutoring at local schools,
volunteering with NorthStar Youth Ministries, Circle of
Sisterhood, and sponsoring neighborhood activities.
In 2012-13, the BSC fraternity and sorority community
donated more than $50,000 to various philanthropic
organizations and gave countless hours of service in chapter-
sponsored events.
Greek life was Greek to me.
I did not have Greek life at
the college I attended and
the stories that I heard from
other moms as their daughters
were pledging did not impress
me. I thought that Greek life
was made of random rules,
high fees, and an emphasis on social clichés. Then my
daughter was given the chance to become a Pi Phi
member at BSC and I learned all the wonderful things
that Greek life could bring into a student’s life. Through
Pi Phi my daughter has gained a family of supportive
friends who are always there for her, and she has gained
immeasurable leadership skills and confidence. What
my daughter gained from this experience far outweighs
the cost. She has built friendships with girls who have
the same desires, work ethics, and values that are
important to her. I have also seen her develop a deeper
commitment to philanthropic work. Greek life is no
longer Greek to me and I am so glad because it has been
a wonderful addition in helping my daughter blossom
into a well-rounded citizen.
