Potential employers and graduate schools want successful students who achieve academically, as well as being committed to leadership, involvement and service. Sororities and fraternities will enhance your opportunities as you look for internships, career opportunities and graduate schools, as they look at more than just grades.
Sororities and fraternities at USD challenge students to define their individual values. Each semester, Greek students are provided with over 250 leadership opportunities or positions through their respective chapters, as well as through other organizations and Greek councils.
The following councils are the student governing bodies of the Greek community:
The Panhellenic Council (PHC) is a nine person selected board designed to guide and develop the four USD sororities.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is comprised of eleven student leaders elected to ensure USD fraternities uphold the high standards that have been established at USD.
