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.

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