Joining a Fraternity or Sorority
Are you interested in joining a fraternity or sorority?
First, make sure you are eligible: if you're a freshman, you must wait until your second semester and have completed 12 credits, with a minimum GPA (which differs slightly for each fraternity and sorority).
Then, learn more by talking with current fraternity and sorority members to find out more about their organizations. Each chapter also holds special events during "recruitment week" for those who are interested in greek life.
Each fraternity and sorority supports itself through dues charged to its members. In the first year of membership, a few one-time fees are assessed. Afterwards, your only expense will be your regular dues.
Will Going Greek Impact My Grades?
Students sometimes find managing their time difficult when moving from high school to the freedoms of college. Fraternities and sororities can actually help in the transition by offering study partners, mandatory study hours, and time management workshops.
