Fraternity Costs and Requirements


Fraternities are a communal living experience.  It’s comparable in cost to living in an apartment and buying all your own food.  And it comes with the life-long experiences, friendships, learning, connections and personal responsibilities that grow out of living together with a diverse group of individuals.  The foundation of that ongoing community is a commitment to the financial and physical well being of the chapter.  Every man counts.  And every man is asked to do his equal and required share for his personal benefit and the good of the whole.  

COSTS – 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR*:

  • Monthly Single Room & Board: DISCOUNTED $1,450.00 (if lease signed and deposit received by Jan. 15, 2017) or FULL PRICE $1,500.00 (with late lease signing and deposit after Jan 15, 2017). Meal plan cost of $425 per month is included and is mandatory.
