About Greek Life
Belmont University is a student-centered university that focuses on developing the entire person by providing opportunities to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Involvement in Belmont Fraternity and Sorority Life will provide you with the opportunity to grow and develop in a values-based social environment.
Belmont Fraternity and Sorority Life (often referred to as “Greek Life”) is based in four core principles (or pillars): Scholarship, Leadership, Brotherhood/Sisterhood, and Service (Philanthropy). These four pillars inform the ways in which students involved in fraternities and sororities at Belmont interact with one another.
Aside from the social benefits of joining a Greek organization, our chapters work to make their experience meaningfulby including activities like study groups, fundraising, community service projects, wellness programs, and spiritual development into the culture of this student community.
On an annual basis, Belmont fraternities and sororities record charitable contributions of over $70,000 and log tens ofthousands of community service hours throughout the Nashville and global communities. Our Greek Community consistently achieves a cumulative grade point average that is higher than the “All Belmont student” average and the “Non-Greek affiliated student average.” Our fraternity men and sorority women are involved in almost every major, club, or student organization and often hold a majority of the top student leadership roles on campus. Positions like Student Government officers, Orientation Council leaders, Towering Traditions leaders, Sport Clubs, Bruin Recruiters, Spiritual Life Assistants, Belmont Fall Follies players, and Student Activities Programming Board officers are regularly held by members of fraternities and sororities.
We know that the media has portrayed “Greek Life” at college campuses in many unflattering and inappropriate ways. At Belmont, we challenge you to “Rethink Greek” and give us a chance to prove that the stereotype is not always the truth and that your experience at Belmont can be one that pushes you to become the best version of yourself.
