Martin, Georgianna L.; Hevel, Michael S.; Asel, Ashley M.; Pascarella, Ernest T.
Journal of College Student Development, v52 n5 p543-559 Sep-Oct 2011
We explored the effects of fraternity and sorority membership on first-year students' development across various liberal arts educational outcomes at 11 institutions. Although many educators perceive fraternities and sororities as anti-intellectual organizations, fraternity and sorority members in this study did not differ from their unaffiliated peers on the educational outcomes explored.
