The University of Akron’s fraternity and sorority community is committed to giving back through hands-on service and philanthropic support. Each fraternity and sorority encourages members to volunteer their time at various non-profits in the greater Akron area and chapter members often do service projects together. Each chapter supports at least non-profit organization with monetary donations, we call this their philanthropy. Chapters hold a variety of events to help raise money for the philanthropies. We help educate and empower students to become socially responsible, active, and contributing members of society both locally and globally.
Our fraternities and sororities love to serve at a variety of agencies. Some of our favorite places to serve include:
Akron Canton Regional Foodbank
Haven of Rest
Akron Public Schools
Summa Health Center
Camp Twin Lakes
Our fraternities and sororities support a numerous philanthropic organizations:
Over 40 fraternity and sorority community members volunteered their time over spring break every year on the Fraternity and Sorority Life ASB Trip at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia.
Camp Twin Lakes, a camp for ill and disabled children, is able to send dozens of campers to camp for no cost each summer thanks to the help our community provides.
