The Saint Louis University fraternity and sorority life community is distributed across three councils. The Panhellenic Council (sorority), InterFraternity Council (fraternity) and Multi-cultural Greek Council (cultural identity based) each have a unique path to membership.
In 2021, all seven of the Panhellenic sororities are eligible to participate in an informal spring semester recruitment process called Continuous Open Bidding (COB). Registration is free for the spring term.

Multicultural Greek Organization Recruitment
Students interested in joining MGC organizations can join through a process known as membership intake. The intake process for each chapter is defined by their international/national organization, and dates are set by the individual organization. Prior to the membership process, organizations host a rush or an informational, where students have the opportunity to express interest in a specific organization. After receiving an invitation for membership, students may begin the membership process.
For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to Recruitment Due to COVID-19
Human connection is necessary more than ever and joining a fraternal organization is an excellent way to achieve that goal. Fraternities and sororities are an enriching part of the collegiate experience–regardless of how that experience is delivered: in person, virtually or a combination of the two.
In 2020-21, the recruitment experience will most likely look different than in years past. While we hope for the traditional recruitment model, social distancing restrictions from state and local authorities and University may effect our ability to provide the traditional in-person recruitment experience. As decisions are made, each council, with guidance from University staff, will adapt to the new limitations while still providing the opportunity to join an organization that can make the transition to college and through this pandemic easier.
Any changes to recruitment will be communicated via email to those that register for recruitment and will be updated on this website regularly.
