Our members come from every imaginable background and celebrate their own religions, cultures, and identities, but are united in continuous pursuit of character, scholarship, leadership, service and brotherhood. We pride ourselves on setting an example for all of MIT to follow: every year, fraternity men captain varsity sports, are elected to the highest leadership roles in student government, perform cutting-edge research, dedicate thousands of hours to community service, lead organizations across campus, compile impressive GPAs, and upon graduation, take the first step towards vibrant careers at some of the most prestigious institutions worldwide. Most importantly, Greek life provides the opportunity to establish bonds with the most dedicated, talented, and diverse people on campus, bonds that will truly last a lifetime

We work closely with the MIT Office of Violence Prevention and Response (VPR), the LGBT Center, and living groups on campus to do educational workshops, campaigns, and information sessions.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is comprised of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on the student-athlete experience. Members also offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses. Through such grassroots efforts, student-athletes have the opportunity to change the face of intercollegiate athletics.
At MIT, the SAAC's mission is to communicate the student-athlete perspective, promote varsity athletics, and actively participate in community service. An executive group meets regularly with DAPER administration to provide insight into issues affecting all varsity student-athletes. To voice concerns and offer solutions that are common among teams, SAAC seeks active members from all varsity teams.
