Information for Parents, Family, and Friends

Welcome, parents, family members and friends!

Sending a loved one to college can be a very hectic time not only for the student but you. Fraternity and Sorority Life in the Office of Student Life is dedicated to offering quality programs and services to make your student's time outside of the classroom a rewarding, fun and educational experience!
 
You may have questions regarding the fraternity and sorority experience at UC Merced. It's not a secret that many stereotypes exist about fraternities and sororities, but the students involved in the organizations at UC Merced have done a lot to break down the stereotypical behavior that is so often seen in the media.
 
Please explore the sidebar for more information on the process of joining a fraternity/sorority organization as well as the responsibilities of new members.
