FRATERNITY AND SORORITY LIFE. Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) staff serves as liaisons between the university and the collegiate chapters, parents, alumni/ae and (inter)national organizations to provide educational programs, services and resources to support the ideals of Greek Life. The work of the staff and student members of FSL provides experiences that merge nearly every segment of the MSU campus community into one cohesive program, promoting self-governance, leadership development, academic achievement, community service and friendship. Staff assist the four major governing boards individually responsible for managing and providing services to their member organizations.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT and STUDENT ORGANIZATION ADVISING. Staff members assist student government leaders by advising, consulting, and serving as a resource on university policies and procedures.  Staff also register over 1000 student organizations, as well as the programs and events sponsored by these groups, and provide consultation to enhance student group development.  Leadership training and development programs help those in student government and other organizations increase their effectiveness as leaders.
