These organizations are rooted in founding principles that foster academic achievement, student involvement, community service and lifelong friendships.

Advantages include:

Sororities and fraternities serve as a great resource for students academically, through study hours and tutoring programs. Most chapters require a high grade-point average for initial membership into the organization. To participate in fraternity or sorority recruitment/intake, one must be enrolled full time (12 credit-hours). GPA requirements are as follows:

All fraternities and sororities have strict policies regulating the consumption of alcohol for underage members and guests. Organizations work closely with the staff to conduct safe social activities. All fraternities and sororities are held accountable to the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs risk management guidelines, their national organization regulations and Tennessee state laws.

The costs of membership go toward the inter/national fees, chapter operating expenses and social functions. Financial obligations differ among individual chapters. New members can expect to pay higher dues their first semester than in subsequent ones.

Additional costs throughout the semester will go toward chapter events, educational programs and other chapter-related materials, pictures, gifts, T-shirts, etc. There are payment plans available for students, as well as scholarships within the individual chapters. While participating in the recruitment/membership/intake process, make sure to ask about the financial obligations of membership.

Calls will be handled in a discreet manner.

Individual chapters elect officers to manage the day-to-day operations of the organization. These officers are assisted by alumni who act as advisers. Each chapter also is responsible to its national organization, which offers support, advice and direction through paid professional staff and regional volunteers.

Also, as of July 1, 2011, two Varicella (chickenpox) vaccines or proof of immunity will be required. The student will not be allowed to register for classes until these requirements are met.

The state of Tennessee mandates that each public or private postsecondary institution provide information concerning Hepatitis B infection to all students entering the institution for the first time. Those students who will be living in on-campus housing for the first time must also provide proof of meningitis vaccine within the past five years. Tennessee law requires that such students complete and sign a waiver form provided by the institution that includes detailed information about the diseases. Students under the age 18 are required to provide a parent-signed copy of the waiver form to APSU, Boyd Health Services, P.O. Box 4655, Clarksville, TN 37044, or fax to 931-221-7388.

APSU will adhere to vaccine requirements set forth by the Tennessee Department of Health and state laws.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, meningococcal disease is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection. While it is relatively rare with fewer than 3,000 cases reported in the U.S. each year, it can cause serious long-term effects and permanent disabilities as well death in approximately 10 percent of cases. There is a vaccination available as a preventive measure for those who have not yet been exposed. The American College Health Association (ACHA) recommends all first-year students living in residence halls receive the meningococcal vaccine. The ACHA further recommends that other college students under the age of 25 consider receiving the vaccination to reduce their risk for the disease. Meningococcal disease rates climb during adolescence and peak between the ages of 15 and 20 years. APSU strongly encourages all students to consider taking the vaccine.

Because Army ROTC is an elective, students may participate during their freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. Students who choose to participate in Army ROTC throughout their college careers will participate in challenging physical and mental exercises in order to prepare to be commissioned as officers in the Army. Junior military officers are paid very competitively with respect to recent college graduates in numerous fields, receive full medical and dental benefits, have 30 days of paid leave per year and have outstanding continuing educational opportunities, among many other benefits.
