Benefits of Being an Alpha Zeta

The impact Alpha Zeta has on our individual members is enormous. Greek life builds relationships and values which endure for the rest of our lives. Here, our Brother describes how the Alpha Zeta experience benefited him.

“Fraternal life was as important and as significant as my academic education. Alpha Zeta provided an environment that helped me to meet my professional goals and helped me to mature socially and gain the confidence to be an active part of the larger Penn State community.”

Alpha Zeta also encouraged us to maintain high academic standards and provided an invaluable support network of fellow students. Our members are far more likely to graduate and score well academically when compared to our non-Greek counterparts.

We are also far more likely to experience post-graduate success. Three-fourths of Congress are Greek members, as are the majority of Fortune 500 CEOs.

The system benefits more than our members. Our active members are involved in charity work, fundraising, student government, and campus events, just as we were as undergraduates.

Greek life takes our young men and women and shapes them into socially competent, well-educated, and compassionate people, with a high potential for success in their post-graduate careers. For all these reasons, Greek life is a vitally important part of the collegiate system, a part which we should fight to preserve at Penn State as people who have benefited from our membership in Alpha Zeta.
