Why a Social Fraternity?
One common characteristic amongst social Greek members of social Greek societies is that those members are dedicated, loyal, respectful, and proud of their individual fraternity or sorority. One of our many purposes is to provide an organization for collegiate men to "socially interact" with one another, that is, we want our members to have pride in, and respect for their Fraternity Brothers, and the Fraternity goals. This respect comes from not only interaction within the various organizations, but outside as well.
We, the members of Phi Rho Eta Fraternity, Inc. view the idea of social fraternity, as one whose members learn their purpose and goals, in life, as well as the fraternity, through dealing with society. Diverse college campus is a microcosm of the world. What better way to prepare an individual for the world than to provide him with an opportunity to socially interact with representatives of society?
Phi Rho Eta Fraternity, Inc. takes this idea one step further in that, we want our members to learn to socially interact, on a positive level, with each other, other Fraternities, and the young men of local communities. In doing so, the members, as well as those they come in contact with, will have a better understanding of how to interact with one another peacefully and productively. What we learn, and already know, we can pass on to the young men in troubled communities.
Why not join another fraternity already in existence?
As mentioned before, the Fraternities of the social Greek system have years of service and commitment to so many different groups and organizations that those groups could not possibly be listed. The goals and purpose of Phi Rho Eta Fraternity, Inc. are not necessarily new; the Men of the Council's Greek system of Fraternities have been providing service to the communities before we were ever thought of, and we acknowledge that fact. Phi Rho Eta Fraternity, Inc. simply wants to put an emphasis on developing communities, by helping the young men in the communities of local chapters. Whereas the other Fraternities provide service in all these areas, we also provide service to these same areas, yet we work directly with the youth, especially troubled young men.
