Why Alpha Eta?

You already know the impact Greek life has—because you lived it. The term ‘social fraternity’ might give the impression that the Greek experience is superficial. But research shows that personal connections and friendships are the key to happiness.  

These lifelong relationships are only part of what makes the fraternity experience so transformational. From our career trajectories to our family’s values, our Alpha Eta experience played a key role. Our experiences helped make us into the people we are today.  

Here is an eBook of some of the best responses to recent a survey of Greek communities across the country. These quotes illustrate why Greek life is and will remain a key part of the higher education experience. Click HERE to read the eBook and keep reading to see what Alpha Eta members had to say. 


  • "I believe in the principles of Beta’s founding and in the new “Men of Principle” credo. The most valuable part of my experience is the lifelong friendships made, along with the camraderie, brotherhood, and mutual support we experienced in college and after." - Daniel P. Kreer '64
  • "I consider my fraternity experience at Denison one of my most memorable. I made lifelong friendships at the Beta House. As a Columbus resident, I run into brothers that were with me during my years and we always greet one another with a great smile and warm embrace. The smile reflects the many laughs and unusual events that we encountered during our days at Beta." - Rick Kirk '79
