When people think of Greek life, they immediately think of Animal House with their wild parties. Many people do not realize that Greek life is not as insane. In Greek life students experience different ways to give back to the surrounding community, and students make tons of new friends who will become family. There are plenty of leadership opportunities, great networking from alumni as well as scholarship opportunities. Open recruitment starts September 19th at 7:45 am! Keep your eyes open for the right fit for you. Greek Organizations are open to all interested students however, first semester freshmen, or student who have earned less that 12 credit hours are ineligible to pledge or associate.
