Fraternity & Sorority

Recruitment and Membership Intake

Recruitment

Recruitment is hosted by the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and the Panhellenic Association (PHA), and each takes place early in the Fall semester

This is a great way for prospective members to visit each of our 13 affiliated fraternities or 5 affiliated sororities at once, as well as a chance to form a network of close friends within a few weeks of arriving on campus.

Recruitment is an opportunity to meet hundreds of your peers, get acquainted with campus, and finally begin your new life as a college student.  Without a doubt, you will meet the men and women who will be your best friends during your college years and beyond.  By participating in recruitment, you are taking the first step toward an active and enriching experience as a fraternity or sorority member.

Membership Intake

Membership intake is the membership selection process conducted by Fresno State's historically Black, Latino/a and Asian Greek-letter organizations, which are governed by either the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) or United Sorority & Fraternity Council (USFC).  Early in the semester, the NPHC and USFC fraternities and sororities represented on campus will present information about their individual chapters for prospective members.   Each chapter does not begin its actual membership intake process until later in the academic year, as NPHC and USFC affiliated fraternities and sororities typically do not accept a student for membership until the student has completed at least 12-24 hours of college credit that meets minimum GPA requirements.  Please talk with the chapter(s) you are interested in for full details about their intake dates and requirements.

NPHC and USFC chapters embrace a lifetime-commitment philosophy and aim to assure the continuance of academic achievement, political awareness, and community service.  We strongly encourage those interested in the Membership Intake process to attend the Meet the Greeks event sponsored by NPHC and USFC.
