The Influence of Fraternity or Sorority Membership on Students' College Experiences and Cognitive Development.
Pike, Gary R.
Research in Higher Education, v41 n1 p117-39 Feb 2000
The National Study of Student Learning indicated that membership in Greek organizations can have negative effects on students' cognitive development, particularly during freshman year. In contrast, this study at a midwestern research university found Greek students had higher levels of involvement and gains in general abilities than non-Greek students, with gains in cognitive development the result of social involvement.(DB)
