View the fraternity and sorority chapters on Stetson's campus.
Joining a fraternity or sorority is not a free experience. Members are required to pay International or National chapters, and local fees. These fees are used for many things, including chapter operating budgets, social events and dues to Inter/National Headquarters. New members generally pay more their first semester of joining, and then the dues will drop once members are initiated. During recruitment or formal intake, be sure to ask about how much an organization costs and if that chapter has any payment plans or packages for members who wish to join.
How Formal Recruitment Works
Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC) Recruitment
Interfraternity Council recruitment is at the beginning of the semester and consists of house tours throughout the week. Men are also eligible to recruit throughout the academic year.
Panhellenic recruitment is at the beginning of the fall semester using a formal process of mutual selection. If a chapter is able to take on more members the chapter will be able to participate in an informal recruitment. For inquiries about organizations that participate in informal recruitment, please reach out to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Involvement.
National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) Formal Intake
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and Phi Beta Sigma, Inc. participate in membership intake at various times of the year. Membership intake is the preparation period preceding initiation. Most NPHC organizations require potential members to be actively involved on campus and in the community. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and Phi Beta Sigma, Inc. hold formal information throughout the academic year. If a student is interested in Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. or Phi Beta Sigma, Inc., they should research the organization's official website and historical background.
Zero-Tolerance Hazing Policy
Stetson University believes that involvement in student organizations and athletic teams greatly enhances the development of college students. An organization's member educational program, if developed and conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect with social and moral responsibility, can contribute much to the student's total education. In keeping with this principle, and in view of the possibility of abuses by student organizations at Stetson and university campuses throughout the country, Stetson University has defined hazing as "any action taken or situation created intentionally, on or off the university campus, by students or off-campus individuals to produce physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule." Any student or student organization that is found in violation of this policy will be subject to a review of its continued status within the university by the senior vice president and chief operating officer at which time appropriate action of the most serious kind will be taken. If at any time you feel hazing has taken place please contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Involvement immediately at 386-822-7319.
Stetson University reviews and evaluates the expansion and growth of the fraternity and sorority community every year. It is through this process that we are continuously moving towards a stronger Greek community. The expansion policy provides students and interested organization an overview of how our fraternity and sorority community grows and extends to organizations on campus.
