Being a part of a Greek-lettered organization is a once in a lifetime experience. You will make friends for a lifetime, and have a family atmosphere away from home. Becoming a part of Eastern's Fraternity/Sorority community will provide you with many leadership opportunities, along with many campus traditions, and community service opportunities. Fraternity/Sorority Life is one of the best ways to get involved both within the university and the Charleston community.
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 what Fraternity/Sorority Life has to offer, make new friends, and become acquainted with the Eastern Illinois University community. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs sets a grade point average requirement of a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average to be able to join a fraternity or sorority. You may need to speak to the respective council's Vice President of Recruitment or chapter(s) you are interested in regarding further membership expectations.
