Student Organizations

Fraternities and sororities are an excellent way to meet new friends and are also an integral part of the campus community at PSU.  More than that, these friends are individuals who have taken an oath of loyalty to one another and to the highest standards of conduct and behavior to themselves and their brothers and sisters. They strive to do well academically, pushing each other to attain high GPAs and get involved in their classes and their major.
