If you want to make fast friends, give back to your community, and join a large family with more than 100 years of history at Baker University, a sorority or fraternity would be a great fit.
In the classroom they consistently outperform other student groups because of their in-chapter tutoring and designated study hours.
Fraternity and sorority members strive to make the world a better place. Each chapter dedicates time and raises funds for local and national philanthropies.
Learning to Lead
FSL members are active in and hold leadership positions in every facet of college life. The valuable leadership skills gained assist members well after their college years.

Sorority and fraternity members benefit from close relationships with thousands of alumni across the United States—individuals who serve as mentors and provide valuable networking opportunities for their younger brothers and sisters.
The Sorority and Fraternity Life community at Baker is home to seven sororities and fraternities, and each chapter is governed by a council. Formal recruitment happens each year in August.
College Panhellenic Council
The Panhellenic women work together to build community, empower women, focus on common goals, and create a network of support for chapters and members. The College Panhellenic Council is the governing body for our three sororities.
The fraternity men focus on the pillars of scholarship, leadership, and brotherhood to unify the fraternity community. The Interfraternity Council is the governing body for our four fraternities.
