Greek Life releases 2018 report card

This past spring, Robert Morris University Greek Life publicly released their annual report card.

The report card not only displays the number of active members, the number of new members and the total amount of money raised for each fraternity and sorority, but it also displays the average GPA of each chapter.

“It’s our way of being transparent, putting it out there that we value the contributions they make to campus,” said Scott Irlbacher, director of special programs and student community standards. “If you look, every group makes a contribution to campus, whether it’s community service, whether it’s raising money for charity, if it’s programming they sponsor, every group is a little different. It gives them an opportunity to showcase those things, and through a comparative lens.”

Every college or university has a report on their greek life that they publish at least one semester per year. However, the Greek Life at Robert Morris is very different from those at other colleges and universities nearby.

“Our structure is rather different,” Irlbacher said. “To a degree, we treat our fraternities and sororities like the other clubs and organizations. We don’t have a Greek Life office. We don’t have a list of policies or expectations like some schools do.”

The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority gained 12 new members, the highest amount of new members on the report card. The Delta Phi Epsilon sorority had the highest number of total members, which was sixty-four. Both the Kappa Alpha Psi and Phi Beta Sigma fraternities tied at 100 percent for the percentage of members involved outside the chapter.
