“Students should join a fraternity or sorority at Valpo because it truly is a unique and valuable experience. Every day, members have the opportunity to shatter the stereotypes of fraternities and sororities and be part of an organization that will make them better people.” Kyle Brown, Sigma Phi Epsilon – Brookfield, Ill., meteorology

“The most impactful experience I have had as a sorority woman is mentoring new members and helping them become some of the greatest leaders in my sorority. Fraternity and sorority life provides a growing and learning experience for people of all kinds!” Brittany Thurston, Kappa Delta – Fort Wayne, Ind., pre-med
