Recruitment FAQ

Why go Greek?

There are a number of reasons why one should go Greek. From the social aspect to the philanthropic and service opportunities, Greek life has a wide range of appeal. However, the number one reason why you should go Greek is the community itself. Simply put, Greek life provides its members a home away from home. Our fraternities offer their members the potential for a lifetime of camaraderie and friendship.

Our recruitment process is a mostly informal process. The first opportunities to meet our fraternities are at Club Fest and Meet the Greeks. From there, fraternities each host 3 events throughout the recruitment period. Prospective new members are free to attend as many or as few events as they please.

Events range in nature from interviews to playing pool, but all events are geared towards trying to help prospective new members find a brotherhood.
