General FSL Information
The Fraternity and Sorority Community at Farmingdale State College is a values-based support system built on the common principles of friendship, scholarship, leadership, and service. Each fraternal organization, guided by its history, mission, and purpose, enriches the individual, college, and community. Members are empowered and expected to continually develop their potential through lifelong exemplification of their fraternal values.
Many students seeking friendship and a home away from home join fraternities and sororities. Along with these benefits come the support of a peer group, opportunities for community and college service, high academic standards and support, educational programming on topics of wellness and personal development, experience working with a diverse membership, and leadership opportunities.
Statement on Hazing
Hazing is counter to the ideals, values, and principles of fraternities and sororities. Farmingdale State College has a zero-tolerance policy on hazing, and the Greek Council is aggressive in educating our fraternities and sororities about how hazing breaks down brother/sisterhood. Groups are required to adhere to risk management policies that address the areas of substance abuse, hazing, sexual abuse, and fire safety to protect their members and guests. Organizations that violate this expectation are referred to the Student Conduct Office for disciplinary action.
