Greek Policies

Click to download the latest copy of the Statement of Relationship (pdf).

The purpose of this Statement of Relationship is to define the expectations that exist between the College and the Greek-letter chapters affiliated with the College. The Statement of Relationship serves as a working document from which to update the understanding of this important relationship. Included in this document is an Appendix which outlines those policies related to the College and its Greek-letter chapters.

Service and Philanthropy

Giving of time and resources to those less fortunate or in need is a very integral part of the Greek experience. Our chapters and councils participate in various events throughout the year when they give their time to support local and national groups. Fraternities and sororities at Albion also raise money in a variety of philanthropic activities for important causes.

Some examples of major service and philanthropic events that Albion's fraternities and sororities participate and coordinate include:

  • Anchorsplash (Delta Gamma) - Service for Sight
  • Derby Days (Sigma Chi) - Children's Miracle Network
  • Mr. Briton (Alpha Chi Omega) - Sexual Assault Services of Calhoun County
  • The Sigma Nu Charity Classic - Jesse's Gift
  • Turkey Trot (Alpha Xi Delta) - Purchase books for elementary schools in the area
