How to Join


Participating in Fraternity and Sorority Life can be an incredibly rewarding and transformative experience. Students involved in fraternities and sororities have the opportunity to build lifelong friendships while developing valuable leadership skills and giving back to the university community and local causes.

The decision to join a fraternity or sorority is personal and can sometimes be difficult. We highly encourage interested students to learn as much as possible and ask questions about the various groups, recruitment and/or intake processes, and expectations of membership before joining, so they can make informed decisions.

All students must have completed at least one full semester at Villanova or have transferred with at least one semester of credits to be eligible for recruitment or intake. Additionally, students hoping to participate in the recruitment process must have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA. Although this is the minimum GPA required to participate in recruitment (set by the Office of Student Involvement), it does not guarantee membership, as many chapters maintain their own GPA requirements that are higher than the Office of Student Involvement's requirement of 2.75. All students must also be in good disciplinary standing with the university to participate in the recruitment or intake processes. 


Mock Recruitment - November 2018

Mock Recruitment is a program offered by the Panhellenic Council to help students gain a better understanding of what to expect during the recruitment process in January 2019. This process is in no way connected to the actual recruitment process, nor does it act as an extension of the process. It is simply meant to prepare you for what to expect in January so there are no surprises!
