Greek Life Encourages Community Service

  • IUP Students Perform Acts of Community Service

    Community service can bring a personal reward to each member of the Greek community. Greeks have multiple fundraiser and philanthropic events each year. Every year the Greek community grants the wish of a terminally ill child of western Pennsylvania for Make-A-Wish.

    Each fraternity or sorority participates and contributes to philanthropy. There are many different philanthropies on campus. A few examples of them are the Robbie Page Memorial, American Cancer Society, United Way, American Red Cross, Indiana County Head Start, ICCAP, March of Dimes, Adopt-a-Highway, Shepard Wellness Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Orenda, and Chevy Chase Community Center.

    Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Association, National Pan-hellenic Council, and Multicultural Greek Council also sponsor events like Movember and Rock the Grove to raise money for male cancer initiatives and the Alice Paul House. All chapters support the IUP Holiday Tree Project through gathering donations for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign.
