How Do I Join?

All of our fraternities and sororities practice deferred recruitment, which takes place in January, to give First-year students a chance to get settled, make friends and adjust academically before making a commitment to a Greek organization.  As a result, only upper class students may join a fraternity or sorority during the fall semester.  Meanwhile, the beginning of each spring semester is the busiest recruitment period for all SU Greek organizations.  Please review the information below about the various opportunities to learn more and/or join a Greek organization.
