Our theme, Building Upon the Brick…Preserving our Future, represents our commitment to provide and maintain our image of the having the “Best” House of Greek Row at South Dakota State University.
Since moving to Greek Row, SDSU FarmHouse has maintained our house as the Premier Greek fraternity house, filled with extremely gifted and talented leaders in every major offered at SDSU.
Across the nation, our chapters are competing with college and university budgets designated for significant upgrades to campus housing. Amenities once considered luxuries like private bathrooms, kitchens, and study lounges, are basic requirements for today’s students. Technology upgrades have become an expectation.
Competitive housing influences member recruitment and retention. When amenities in the chapter house aren’t comparable to on-campus alternatives, maintaining full occupancy can become a struggle, potentially placing the chapter under financial stress.
An investment in FarmHouse property and chapter houses is an investment in our future.
Alumni often describe their most treasured SDSU FarmHouse experiences in relation to living or socializing in the chapter house. Chapter homes play a significant role in recruitment, provide a suitable community living environment, and teach members about operations, finances, personal responsibility, and how to navigate personal relationships.
