UK Interest

Hi!

I'm part of a group of students studying at the University of Liverpool, UK.

We're really interested in your Fraternity system but don't really know a great deal about it and so we'd like to know more!!

If you think you're part of the best Fraternity in the US then please post a reply or send me an email telling us some information about how its run and what you get up to.

Cheers
Bazzarelli

How it is run and how it is setup encompass MANY things. It's like starting anything else. You need to have a mission and then everything else falls into place. Most of your larger US fraternities share the goal of helping to build men of good character, the fraternity has its ideal member. For example SAE has the "True Gentleman" and Sigma Nu's ideal brother practices "Love, Honor and Truth". You can find more about that on an organization's website.

From there you need to establish your business side of things, write a constitution, bylaws, etc. Decide what kind of meetings you will have and what the inward and outward goals of your organization are.. If it takes money to do these things you may want to charge your members dues.

I'll stop here, but there's soo much more involved in starting a fraternity. I did a great deal to start the chapter of Sigma Nu at my school and in my humble opinion we're the best fraternity around (and if you ask anyone from any other fraternity they are also!).

In truth there are far too many intangibles and different ways of looking at things to truly say who the "best" fraternity in the US is. If you have any specific questions though, there are several of us out here that have helped found our respective chapters so ask and ye shall be answered.

Hi,

I'm sure we all believe we're in the "best" fraternity. It's really a matter of which one is the best fit for you and your friends. The important thing to know is that Greek life isn't all parties -- there's a lot of work involved, too. That's particularly true of the colonization process.

Take a look at www.delts.org

There is a section of info on how the fraternity works, constitution, bylaws, etc. as well as information on ideals and other things you might be interested in.

Good luck.
