Grove City College is home to 27 Community Living Privilege (CLP) groups which are comprised of 10 local fraternities, eight local sororities, and nine men’s independent housing groups.
Each possesses a rich history and adds value to the college experience through a strong community experience, leadership opportunities, and a focus on group service and philanthropy. While involvement in Greek Life or a housing group is not for everyone, those who participate often identify these organizations as the foundation of lifelong and meaningful relationships, a source of academic and social support, and a positive influence on personal development.
Each CLP group goes through an extensive evaluation process every two years during which they demonstrate how the organization has pursued, met, and exceeded the College’s expectations in each of these areas: fulfillment of mission and purpose, leadership development, spiritual and moral development, scholarship, service and philanthropy, and campus involvement.
Eric Fehr, Assistant Dean of Students, and each CLP's faculty or staff advisor provide oversight for these groups.
I.F. Council is the governing body of the College's fraternities. Comprised of five officers, the president of each fraternity, and one I.F. representative from each fraternity, the council governs relations among fraternities, rushing and Greek orientation, and I.F. athletic programs. The council develops programs that foster healthy relations among fraternities, the College, and the surrounding community.
Pan-Hellenic Council is the governing body of the eight local sororities on campus and is composed of its president, rush chairman, and the president of each sorority. The purpose of the council is to foster a spirit of friendship and cooperation among the sororities, to encourage the support of Grove City College organizations and social affairs, to regulate those matters which concern all sororities, to regulate rushing and new Greek orientation, and to instill adherence to customs and traditions of the College.
