Greek Life


The Greek community at Bloomsburg University is comprised of a diverse group of fraternities and sororities, each of which offer all students the chance to find a group to match their values and personalities. Fraternities and sororities offer lifetime opportunities for friendship, service to the community, leadership and scholarship.

Regardless of the fraternity or sorority, membership in a Greek organization will enhance BU experience. The Greek community is dedicated to providing an enriching experience to students participating in fraternities and sororities. Greek organizations offer a broad experience at BU. Each fraternity and sorority requires registration for the recruitment process. Once you complete the registration, events will be forwarded to you.

Why Greek Life?

Coming to college is one of the major life changes that your student will go through. Joining a fraternity or sorority can help make the transition easier. Developing life-long friendships with the members in their chapter helps make the campus smaller and more manageable.

For many members, these chapters become there home away from home. In addition to the brotherhood/sisterhood, every chapter promotes the values of enhancing leadership, service scholarship, philanthropy and financial responsibility in their members.

Greek System Review

This fall the Bloomsburg University Division of Student Affairs will conduct a comprehensive review of our Greek system.

Consultants will review the impact of sorority and fraternity Greek chapters on the Bloomsburg University campus community. They will assess and identify successes as well as issues, challenges and limitations the Greek program faces. Consultants will gather data and perceptions from all stakeholders to provide risk and gain analysis to propose creative options to addressing issues. Stakeholders, which include Greek and non-Greek students, chapter advisors, Greek alumni and University administration, will have the opportunity provide their perceptions through focus groups, one-on-one meetings, and surveys.

The consultants will visit campus from October 23 to 27, 2017. The final report will be delivered in late December.

After a competitive request for proposal process through the University Procurement Office, the AASCU-Penson Center for Professional Development was awarded the contract and will conduct the review. A committee comprised of members of the Greek Alumni Advisory Committee and Student Affairs evaluated each proposal.

Any questions about the review should be directed to Edwin Valovage, Director of Student Union and Campus Life at 570-389-4036 or evalovag@bloomu.edu.
