Hosted in January when most newly elected council and chapter leaders take office, the Presidents Retreat emphasizes problem solving, leadership development, values-based decision making, effective communication, and community development. Student participants will return to ASU with an action plan, as well as the skills, relationships, and courage to make positive change within the fraternity and sorority community.
Hosted every semester by the six governing councils and Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, this educational session is required of all students who join a fraternity or sorority in a given semester. Students have an opportunity to meet fellow new members to fraternities and sororities, understand our shared values, know what to expect while a new member of a fraternity or sorority, review the university and governing councils’ expectations for proper behavior, learn about the basic governing structures and key events, and be connected with resources to make them successful while at ASU.
