Greek Life

What do all sororities and fraternities have in common? All chapters at Sonoma State (and inter/nationally) share the common values of academic achievement, diversity, community service, friendship and provide a plethora of leadership opportunities for members. There are 13 Greek organizations on campus with a combined total membership of approximately 500 SSU students. Visit our website to learn more about the fraternities and sororities on campus and how to join.

SAFE

www.sonoma.edu/campuslife/safe

SAFE peer educators offer peer-to-peer education to the campus community on health and safety issues including Responsbile Alcohol Use, Sexual Assault Prevention and Healthy Sexuality/HIV/STI's. Studies show that people are more likely to hear and understand messages that may change attitudes and behaviors if they believe the messenger is similar to them in lifestyle and faces the same concerns and pressures. In student groups, researchers found that they relied on their peers as their most important sources of information about many topics. To learn more about becoming a peer educator, contact SAFE at safe@sonoma.edu.

Clubs and Organizations
