Resources For Families
Students may look to parents and family members for support during college, and their involvement in a fraternity or sorority is no exception to this. Parents and families have an opportunity to connect with staff are always welcome to call, email or visit the FSL office to get any questions answered.
We also encourage you to get involved in your student’s experience within the FSL community. Many fraternities and sororities have activities during family weekend as well as Mom's & Dad's clubs for the parents of their members.
First and foremost academic success is a top priority for Fraternity and Sorority Life. Most Greek letter organizations require minimum GPAs for members. As a supportive parent or family member encourage your student to make their academic achievement the focus of their time at the University of Kentucky.
