The typical residence hall will cost a student about $3,820 per term if food is included. To contrast, the most average fraternity cost per term including meal plan is around $2,750. This may be a viable option for students to save money if the student is able to break their housing contract with
University Housing. Students should make sure the fraternity is apart of the Affiliated Housing Program.

Because of the size of fraternities relative to other student organizations, there is almost always at least one member in your major. Often you will be able to share books or borrow books from members who already took your classes. Your brothers will be very supportive of your academics and will be availible for tutoring. The more help you get, the better you will do in classes. This will reduce the number of classes that will need to be retaken and therefore save money over time.
