Scholarship continues to be an essential part of life for all Thiel College students especially within the Greek organizations. Greek Life was built on the basis of academic and social success. The Greek community's goal is for its members to become exceptional students as well as exceptional leaders. We take great pride in our Greek students' academic success. Our Greek students have a higher overall GPA than the campus' non-Greek students.
Thiel College's Panhellenic Councial and Interfraternity Council require all men and women going through the recruitment process to have a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average. Each chapter has an elected officer who oversees the members and their academic performance throughout the year.
