Greek Life Recruitment


What will I get out of Greek Life?

Joining a fraternity or sorority can help make the transition to college easier. Developing lifelong friendships with the members in their chapter helps make the campus smaller and more manageable. For many members, these chapters become their home away from home. In addition to the brotherhood/sisterhood, every chapter promotes the values of enhancing leadership, service scholarship, philanthropy/service and financial responsibilities.

Requirements of Greek Life

All of the following minimum campus requirements for joining a Greek organization must be met:

  • Fill out a Record Release Authorization Form
  • Have met a minimum of a 12 credits and a 2.5 GPA
  • No Judicial Sanctions which would restrict new member activity.
  • Have been extended a bid by a recognized Greek Life organization.
