With spring semester in full effect, Greek Life is out in droves holding their second rounds of recruitment for the year. All _ organizations are searching for their right fit in potential new members and you might be it!
As far as Greek organizations go, the campus has a number of sororities: Alpha Sigma Tau, Delta Pi Omega, Mu Sigma Upsilon, Rho Sigma Phi, Zeta Phi Beta, Chi Upsilon Sigma and Phi Sigma Sigma.
On the other end there are the fraternities: Chi Phi, Phi Kappa Theta, Sigma Phi Rho, Phi Beta Sigma, Lambda Sigma Upsilon, and Theta Delta Chi.
There’s even on coed fraternity on campus Zeta Lambda Chi. Each has their own set of standards an ideals, so you should be able to find something that fits your fancy.
The National Sororities under the Panhellenic Council have an overarching governing body that requires them to do recruitment together in the fall semester. You might have noticed Phi Sigma Sigma and Alpha Sigma Tau together tabling and on posters.
Though this semester they are recruiting separately giving you more time with sisters of each organization should you be interested.
If you need more of a reason to look into Greek Life, Order of Omega exists for those academic scholars. This organization is open to all members of Greek organizations on campus for those with a high GPA and level of philanthropic involvement which looks great on a resume.
