The Greek System at Delta State University has been established to assist the student in the achievement of his/her educational aims. Fraternities and sororities enable a person to broaden intellectually and socially by working with people of diverse backgrounds dedicated to common goals. The groups offer many opportunities to develop leadership and responsibility and to participate in a varied social program. During the years of their growth at Delta State, the fraternities and sororities have been involved in many outstanding activities such as community service projects, Homecoming festivities, charity benefits, and other events on the University campus.
Students are selected for membership during Formal Membership Recruitment, Intake periods or any time during the academic year when chapters have membership openings. The NPC (National Panhellenic Conference) sororities(Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Delta, Phi Mu) conduct Formal Membership Recruitment the week preceding the Fall Semester. The IFC (Interfraternity Council) fraternities (Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Phi Mu Alpha, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon) hold Recruitment near the beginning of the fall semester. The NPHC (National Pan Hellenic Council) sororities (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta) and fraternities (Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Phi Beta Sigma) have their Intake activities later in the school year. All students must be officially registered with the appropriate university Greek Advisor prior to the beginning of any kind of Recruitment activities.
Informal Recruitment continues as needed throughout the year for all Greek groups. For complete details and additional information, contact the Panhellenic and IFC Advisor in Union 200 concerning the NPC sororities and IFC fraternities and the Pan Hellenic Advisor in Bailey 108 concerning the NPHC groups. All Greek activities (on campus) must be scheduled with the Coordinator of University Facilities/Calendar in Union 307.
