Why FarmHouse?


    Why FarmHouse?


    As you graduate from high school, seek to get more involved on campus as a sophomore, or transfer to the University of Illinois from a Junior College, FarmHouse can help you make the most of your college career. We are committed to academic excellence, leadership development, and helping you acquire the personal and professional skills that will enable you to be successful in your future career.

    FarmHouse is the home of many campus leaders and the former home of over 1,400 successful alumni. In each of the past four years, the Illinois Chapter of FarmHouse Fraternity has been awarded Outstanding Fraternity of the Year or runner-up on the University of Illinois campus, home to more than 50 Greek fraternities. We believe this element of leadership indicates our commitment to our members and to our success in developing men academically, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. This building takes place through a common spirit of brotherhood, providing a family of support for all members.

    The University of Illinois is an institution rich in academic and professional tradition and our chapter was founded 100 years ago, in 1914, with the purpose of educating young people and helping them to attain their career goals. FarmHouse International also has a long history of excellence. It was established in 1905, at the University of Missouri. As an international fraternity with chapters across the United States and Canada we have 42 active chapters. Choosing a fraternity is an important decision and if you seek one that is committed to helping you make the most of your college experience, we believe FarmHouse Fraternity may be for you.



    Fraternity Object
    The object of our Fraternity is to promote good fellowship, to encourage studiousness and to inspire its members in seeking the best in their chosen lines of study, as well as in life. Progress shall mark our every step; the spirit of congeniality shall reign at all times; and every member shall be honest with himself as well as with his brothers. Men elected to our membership are considered to be of good moral character, to be high in scholarship, to have the capacity for meeting and making friends, and to give promise of service to their fellow men and to the world. To be and become such may at times require a sacrifice of time, pleasures and comforts.
