The National Panhellenic Conference recognized 33 colleges and universities in the United States as having added a fraternity and sorority community between 2000 and 2015. Graduation rate data from these institutions were collected from before the addition of fraternal organizations, and from six years later. Graduation rates after the addition of fraternities and sororities (M = 57.00) were higher than before (M = 52.97), (t  = -4.42, p < .01). The results of this study suggest that the addition of a fraternity and sorority community can have a positive overall influence on student and institutional success.
