Service & PhilanthropyOne of the most rewarding aspects of fraternity and sorority membership is the opportunity to impact the lives of those in the community. WVU Greek members participate in both hands-on volunteer work and philanthropic work, or raising money for a great cause. Chapters raise funds for national and/or local organization or cause each year, and service projects are organized at a chapter, council, and community-wide level, allowing members to get to know the community in a new way, gain valuable experiences, and work together with other members of the Greek community.
Last semester, over 800 members of the WVU Greek community participated in the first ever BIG Greek Day of Service, performing over 40 different projects in Monongalia, Marion, and Preston Counties.
The West Virginia University Greek community promotes each member's commitment to the following:
Service to Others
- I will serve as a lifelong volunteer in both community and University service;
- I will learn and strive to understand the value of participating in community service activities as a member of the fraternity and sorority community
