Female High School Seniors, women transferring to UT, and UT students who are not already affiliated with an NPC sorority and are interested in joining a sorority during formal recruitment in August, are encouraged to attend Panhellenic Preview. At Panhellenic Preview, each participant will have an opportunity to meet current active sorority woman, learn what to expect during formal sorority recruitment, and ask questions about what it is like being Greek at UT!
This program is suited for both the interested student and their parents/families. Parents and families will be presented pertinent information about our sorority community and have an opportunity to hear from staff, faculty, and other parents of sorority women.
Panhellenic Preview will be held during the day on March 8, 2014 at Sorority Village and the UT Visitors Center. Students can check in at Sorority Village between 11 AM - 11:30 AM and the Parent Program will begin on campus at 1 PM.
We do have a minimal charge for you and your family to attend. For each potential student there is a $30 fee which includes the cost of a t-shirt and lunch. There is no fee to attend as a parent or family member. When you click on the link below to register you will be given payment instructions.
The deadline to register for Panhellenic Preview is Friday, March 7th at 8 AM

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.
NPHC fraternities and sororities initiate new members through a membership intake process (MIP). Each group holds its process at its own specified and designated time.
Undergraduate students that wish to affiliate with NPHC chapters must meet certain specific membership qualifications. These standards include academic achievement (2.3-2.5 gpa depending upon the organization), community service and good character. Such requirements are designed to promote the building of strong and effective chapters. Each affiliate organization shall implement its own membership intake process that is developed by the National organization.
Each affiliate organization implements the guidelines and details of its own membership intake process, so the lengths of the specific programs vary.
