Finding Your Forever Greek Family

Want to add a chapter to your story? Greek organizations seek new members each semester to become a part of a brotherhood or sisterhood that lasts far beyond your four years at York. Students may choose to participate in formal spring recruitment or informal fall recruitment. In order to join a fraternity or sorority on campus, interested students must have completed at least one semester of classes and have an established GPA of 2.5+.

Recruitment: What You Need to Know

Every Spring, students who have completed at least one semester of college and earned a minimum 2.5 GPA have an opportunity to meet the members the sororities on campus and begin their journey of finding their place in Greek Life. Those interested in joining a sorority can meet the sisters and learn more about each different organization all while making new friends and finding their second home at YCP. This week-long process is an unforgettable experience and is something students remember well beyond their four years at York.

Sign Up for Sorority Recruitment

Recruitment in the fall is held in a more informal setting that gives potential new members the opportunity to meet the different sororities. These one-on-one sessions allow students to get to know the members of different chapters and establish a closer relationship before joining their sisterhood. Students wishing to participate in Fall Recruitment must also have completed at least one semester of course work and have an established GPA.

Sororities hold numerous events including friendship parties, informational sessions and small group meetings and invitations for membership are extended on a chapter by chapter basis. Those interested in participating in fall recruitment are encouraged to attend open house events hosted by Panhellenic Council.

Just like sororities, those interested must have completed at least one semester of course work at YCP and have an established GPA.
