How to Join

Joining a fraternity or sorority opens the door to many opportunities to enhance your collegiate experience, get involved, and pursue personal growth through leadership, scholarship, and service, while making memories and friendships to last a lifetime.

Chapters in our Greek community are represented by three councils. Each council has different processes for welcoming new members into respective chapters. Take time to learn more about each council's recruitment process and how to join an organization.

The Greek Tiger is our annual recruitment publication with the information you need to explore the process of joining a chapter.
