We strive to create a values-based collegiate experience for undergraduates consisting of academic pursuits, leadership and social development, cultural awareness, and service to others. One of our central goals is to create a "home away from home" for our students within each organization, within the three governing councils, and throughout the entire community."
All of the chapters have their own rituals, traditions, and philanthropies, but they all strive to live the the Coastal Carolina Fraternity & Sorority Life's mission.
Coastal Carolina University's community of fraternities and sororities strives to provide members with the tools necessary to become the leaders of tomorrow through brotherhood/sisterhood. Fraternity and Sorority membership advances the mission of the University to develop productive, responsible, healthy citizens. While individually unique in scholarship, leadership, community service and social interaction, each chapter and council embraces diversity and promotes high standards of excellence.
