The four values of Fraternity and Sorority Life at UC Merced are leadership, scholarship, service and friendship.

Leadership: The leadership opportunities and training within a fraternity or sorority help to prepare its members for the future by developing responsibility and character.

Scholarship: The scholarship focus and emphasis on academic excellence pushes members to realize their purpose for attending the university - to achieve higher education and to become more knowledgeable about scholarly subjects and the world around them.

Service: The service shown to the campus or community through direct volunteer and philanthropic contributions humble members, as well as strengthen a sense of accomplishing something for the good of others.

Friendship: The lifelong bonds of friendship created within a fraternity or sorority help to keep its members unified in achieving a common goal.
