Each organization accepts New Members through a New Member Education process which is set in place by each respective organization’s National infrastructure.
Most organizations participate in a new member process at the beginning of the semester. To partake in this process, an interested member must meet certain requirements set forth by each respective organization (GPA minimum, community service, good character, etc.). These requirements are set forth to ensure each organization has not only a close-knit bond with one-another, but also holds academic achievement and serving the community at a higher standard. If you would like more information on any of the fraternities/sororities within the Multicultural Greek Council, please contact the organization’s president.

You will have an opportunity to speak in a small group to an affiliated member of an MGC chapter so that you can learn about the intake process. Meet the Greeks will be held on August 27, 2014 in the University Center.
