How to Join a Culturally-based Fraternity or Sorority

Cultural Fraternity and Sorority Recruitment

The process for joining a culturally-based fraternity or sorority is varied by organization and takes place throughout the academic year.

Students interested in joining a cultural fraternity or sorority are encouraged to research the history and values of the organization/s they are interested in, attend chapter hosted programs, events, and community service. Students are also encouraged to attend interest meetings/informational sessions hosted by the chapter to learn more about the requirements and the process for joining as the process is unique to each organization.

At the beginning of each semester MGC, NALFO, and NPHC host the Cultural Greek Open House. This event allows interested students to interact with fraternity and sorority members from all chapters to learn more about each organization in an informal setting. At this event the organizations will also showcase their traditions of stepping, strolling, or saluting.

Students interested in joining a Culturally-based fraternity or sorority must Register for Cultural Greek Recruitment. Registration deadline is August 30, 2021 and there is no fee to register.
