Participating in fraternity and sorority life can be one of the most valuable and memorable experiences throughout your college years. Those students involved have the opportunity to building lifelong friendships while learning leadership, time management, and commitment to a larger organization and cause.
The decision to participate in fraternity and sorority recruitment is very personal and can often be intimidating. We encourage you to learn as much as you can and ask questions about the various groups and recruitment process.
Ways to educate yourself include attending Fraternity and Sorority Information Night sessions, browsing this website, and visiting the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life in Corr Hall.
Villanova is a deferred recruitment campus. This means that formal recruitment takes place in the Spring semester. All students must have completed one full semester at Villanova or have transfered with at least one semester of units to be eligible for recruitment. In addition, men must have a 2.6 cumulative GPA and women must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA. Individual chapters may have additional GPA requirements that are higher than the minimum listed above. All students must also be in good disciplinary standing with the university.
The VP of Recruitment on the Interfraternity Council organizes the formal recruitment period during the January and February of the Spring semester. In addition many chapters hold an informal recuritment in the Fall semester, available to upperclassman and transter students.
The individual fraternities and sororities in the MGC host their recruitment/intake periods at different points throughout the year. MGC hosts an annual "Meet the Greeks" event in January where those interested are able to meet all of the chapters at Villanova.
