How do I get involved in fraternities and sororities?
During the fall and spring semesters each fraternity and sorority participates in the new member recruitment to let students examine Greek organizations.
Pan Hellenic (the governing body of sororities) and the Interfraternity Council (the governing body of fraternities) host "Recruitment" which gives students a chance to talk to members from each chapter and tour the houses. These students then have the opportunity to visit each fraternity or sorority and choose the group with which they feel comfortable.
Similarly, each National Pan-Hellenic (the governing body composed of the traditionally African-American fraternities and sororities) sorority and fraternity participates in an intake process as outlined by its National Headquarters. Each group independently organizes gatherings designed to allow prospective members a chance to meet current members.
