Have you ever thought about going Greek? Sororities and Fraternities are associations or societies of men/women who espouse common purposes and values. Here at Western Michigan University there are four governing councils for Greek life: College Pan-Hellenic, interfraternity, National Pan-Hellenic, and multicultural Greek.
The College Pan-Hellenic Council serves as the governing body for 8 National Pan-Hellenic Conference member organizations here at WMU. These sororities include: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Phi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega, Delta Zeta, Pi Beta Phi, and Sigma Kappa. These are also the sororities who participate in formal recruitment.
Students can register to go through formal recruitment for the Pan-Hellenic sororities online. This year formal recruitment was just last week, September 10th-16th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
In the fall of 2011 I went through formal recruitment right after transferring to WMU. You get the opportunity of going through and seeing each of the eight houses to decide what is the right fit for you. I found my place at Alpha Xi Delta and am so fortunate to be surrounded by such a great group of women!
