Consider Joining!

Interested in joining a fraternity or sorority?

All students who show interest in fraternity or sorority membership are encouraged to participate in the formal recruitment process. Formal recruitment is a weekend program which allows interested students to meet all of the respective chapters and learn more about what each has to offer the campus.

Not sure if Greek life is for you?

That's okay! Simply participating in the formal recruitment process does not enter students into an agreement or contract. Participating in formal recruitment is a great way to get to know many new people--and learn more about the Greek community along the way! You can always track what Ashland University Greeks are doing on Facebook at Ashland University Greek Life or on Twitter at AUGreekLife.

Fraternity Recruitment

Fraternity recruitment is a relaxed atmosphere in which interested men visit with each of the fraternity chapters to learn more about chapter values and activities, while also getting the opportunity to simply get to know some of the fraternity men. Learning more about each of the chapters helps the interested men identify what they are hoping to gain from a fraternity experience.

Sorority Recruitment

Sorority recruitment is a structured process facilitated by the Panhellenic Council, the governing body of all sororities. Once registered for recruitment, interested women will be placed in a color group that they will be apart of for the duration of the recruitment process. Each color group is led by a group of Panhellenic women called "Rho Gammas" (which stands for "Recruitment Guides"). These women temporarily disassociate from their sororities in order to be a resource to interested women by providing unbiased guidance and to field questions about recruitment or sorority life.

Sorority recruitment is a mutual selection process in which the interested women discover which chapter would be a potential fit for them while the chapters identify which of the interested women would make a great addition to their organization.

To participate in sorority recruitment, interested women must sign-up online.
