- Fraternity and Sorority Life
Joining a Greek Chapter
Welcome to Saint Louis University! We’re excited you’re interested in learning more about Greek Life at SLU! Fraternities and sororities play an important role on the Saint Louis University campus as values based organizations focused on scholarship, service, leadership and brotherhood/sisterhood. Joining a Greek lettered organization should enhance your SLU experience and help you build lifelong relationships.
Being part of a Greek organization will provide you the opportunity to focus on your academics, enhance your leadership skills, and develop as a whole person. We encourage you to take time to learn about our organizations and what they have to offer. We hope you will choose to be a part of the SLU Greek experience!
SLU Greek Life is represented by three governing councils who each have a different process for members to join.

The Panhellenic Council holds a formal fall recruitment process that occurs over 4 days and is a mutual selection process. To avoid conflicts with classes, recruitment events are held in the evenings and on weekend days. Registration is required and will close a week before recruitment begins. A $30 registration fee is required for all participants.
The Interfraternity Council holds a formal recruitment at the beginning of each semester. Each chapter hosts events held both on and off campus to get to know potential new members. After getting to know potential members, chapters will invite men they are interested in having join to their last event, the smoker, and are able to extend bids the following day. A $10 registration fee is required to participate.
Multicultural Greek Council chapters are made up of members from colleges and universities in the greater St. Louis area. They conduct their membership selection or "membership intake process" independently and at different times. Chapters usually hold a formal interest meeting for prospective new members. Most NPHC organizations require a standing college GPA and some require sophomore standing in order to apply for the intake process. In the fall semester chapters will host a Historically Black Greek Panel for students to learn more.
