Interfraternity Council (IFC)
The Interfraternity Council of Georgia State University hosts seven North American Interfraternity Council collegiate men’s chapters that aim to promote leadership, service, brotherhood, and scholarship in order to develop better men and a better community. Chapters in the Interfraternity Council conduct a semi-structured recruitment process at the beginning of each semester. This is a mutual selection process that requires interested members to attend fraternity sponsored recruitment events. These events sometimes include information sessions where brothers and alumni discuss the unique aspects of their fraternity and share personal experiences with prospective members. Please take time to read the Expectations of Fraternity Members provided by the North-American Interfraternity Conference.

Panhellenic Council (PC)
The Panhellenic Council is composed of five values-based women’s sororities that work to advance the sorority experience at Georgia State University. These social, Greek lettered organizations live their missions by providing philanthropic support and service to national and local worthy causes. Panhellenic Formal Recruitment is a three-day process that occurs in the fall semester. Students will have the opportunity to learn about all five chapter’s scholarship, service, leadership, and sisterhood components throughout the process. All women interested in Panhellenic Formal Recruitment, must register and participate in all three days of recruitment.

Spring Recruitment is informal and does not require a woman to register. Not all Panhellenic sororities will be conducting a new member process. Students who are interested in joining during the spring semester should contact that organization directly using the public email address they have posted on Panther Involvement Network (PIN) or through Instagram.

Panhellenic’s Meet the Greeks will take place virtually on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at 6-8 p.m. For more information about Panhellenic, please check out their Instagram @gsupanhellenic
