To participate in a fraternal organization at Villanova, one must have completed at least the first semester of freshman year (at Villanova University or another institution of higher education) and achieved an overall GPA of no less than 2.75. Students must also be in good disciplinary standing with the university to be eligible to participate.
Most students become involved in Fraternity and Sorority Life because it provides opportunities for leadership and professional development, service, improved academic resources, community, and lifelong friendships. Becoming involved in the Villanova Fraternity and Sorority Life community is a positive experience that expands a Villanova student’s horizons and enables them to be involved in many facets of university life.
At Villanova, you will be faced with many great opportunities, and with that comes many, sometimes difficult, decisions. Making the decision to participate in fraternity recruitment can offer you the chance to meet and find a community of people that share your interests and values.
Fraternities and sororities can help you find your niche on campus, be your home away from home, offer resources to help you achieve academic goals, provide a network of connections during college and as an alumni, and give you a group of friends that will cheer you on when you're successful, and who will support you when the going gets tough.
Please note the Hazing Policy: Hazing, in any form, is strictly prohibited by Villanova University, the Interfraternity, Panhellenic, and Multicultural Greek Councils, and the local and inter/national offices of each recognized organization. New and active members should not tolerate such behavior, as it does not promote relationship-building and trust, and rather serves to break down morale and the notion of community upon which Villanova University was founded.
