Becoming a part of a Greek organization is a unique, once in a lifetime experience. Going Greek results in finding your ‘home away from home’ and forming lifelong friendships. Fraternity/sorority life is the best way to immerse yourself into an abundance of leadership, campus, and community service opportunities.
The first step to becoming a member of a fraternity or sorority is to participate in the recruitment or intake process. Through these processes, you will discover the benefits of fraternity/sorority life, make new friends, and become acquainted with the EIU community. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs sets a requirement of a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average to be eligible to join a fraternity or sorority. You may consider contacting the respective council's or chapter(s)’ Vice President of Recruitment for further inquiries regarding membership expectations.
