As a parent, it's important to learn about the fraternities and sororities of interest to your child in order to help your child make the best decision when he or she enters into the Greek community. The following information should provide you with a better understanding of the fraternities and sororities on the Loyola University New Orleans campus.

Academics

Academics should be your child's main focus while in college. A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required in order to join a fraternity or sorority at Loyno. Most Greek organizations on campus also require a minimum GPA in order to remain a member after initiation.

Hazing

Hazing is considered any action taken that produces bodily harm or danger, mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, fright, or ridicule. Today, all fraternity and sorority policies strictly prohibit any type of hazing activity. Loyola University New Orleans holds a zero-tolerance stance on this issue. These types of actions are against university policy and the Louisiana state law. For more information on hazing and contact information reporting these actions, please visit our Policies and Forms page.

Time Commitment

Joining a fraternity or sorority involves a weekly time commitment. The amount of time spent weekly with the organization varies with each member. Typically, each chapter holds at least one (1) meeting each week. There are mandatory events for the individual chapters and Fraternity and Sorority Life as a whole; however, members are always given at least two (2) weeks notice to these events. Some members choose to participate in optional activities, such as holding an office, attending social events, helping out with various projects, committees, etc. Some organizations require more time than others, so it is important for your child to ask for information on the time commitment during recruitment.

Hazing Policy

Loyola University New Orleans does not tolerate hazing and severe action will be taken against any student or organization found in violation of the Hazing Policy, up to and including indefinite revocation of the charter for the organization and suspension or dismissal for students involved. Loyola University New Orleans is committed to a safe and healthy campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Our university family is dedicated to supporting an environment that encourages respect for the dignity and rights of the entire university community.
