Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs


Recruitment/intake is the mutual selection process by which the prospective member (you) and the fraternities or sororities determine the best fit for membership. It is a mutual process where you have the opportunity to decide which chapter would be a good fit for you and where each chapter determines who they would like to invite to be a member. While all chapters strive to create better men and women, each chapter is different and unique. It is encouraged for prospective students to be open-minded and to interact with members of multiple chapters in order to determine if fraternity and sorority life is for you and which chapter is the best fit.

While some specific organizations may have higher standards, the minimum standard requirement to participate in recruitment/intake is:

  • Have a 2.5 cumulative Winthrop University GPA or transfer GPA and 12 University credit hours
  • Enrollment as an active Winthrop University student

Recruitment is different for each council:
