Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations. The AU experience is based on four core principles of civic engagement, friendship, academic excellence, and leadership. Our organizations are founded to aid in the host institution's academic mission and to help develop students in these core principles.
Fraternities and sororities support their members' academic goals. Chapters encourage members to study and reward them for achievement. The fraternity and sorority community celebrates their accomplishments each spring at the FSL Awards reception and has received many academic awards.
Philanthropy and service are important to the fraternity and sorority community. Each chapter holds events throughout the year to raise money and awareness for a variety of philanthropic causes. Chapters also participate in hands-on service in the community. Each fall, chapters hold their annual philanthropic and service events
Leadership development is an advantage of fraternity and sorority life. Many programs and events are held throughout the year to support students' leadership development. Additionally, fraternity and sorority members have the opportunity to hold leadership positions, participate in committees, and plan events within their chapters and councils
