FSL 101: New Member Education

 

Each fall and spring new members from all fraternities and sororites are required to attend a mandatory training which covers five major areas of education: alcohol/drug and hazing education, sexual violence prevention and awareness, diversity/inclusion, and academic success.

Using videos, group activities, and reflection, new members are engaged in critical thinking and dialogue about how they can keep themselves and others safe while supporting a community welcoming of all. We are diving into what does it really mean to be Greek at CSUSM.
