You can join a fraternity or sorority during or after the second semester of your first year. You need to be in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5.
If you decide to join Greek life, you need to find the right organization for you! Attend potential new member events and get to know the current members. If both parties feel it is a good fit, you are then offered a bid, and once accepted, you start the new member education process.
Students can go through the recruitment process in or after the second semester of their first year if they are in good academic standing and have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
No! Most Clarkson students don't join a fraternity or sorority, and even if you don't, you likely have friends who do. Participating in Greek life is a personal choice.
In order to join a Greek organization, students have to receive an invitation from the organization in which they expressed an interest. This is called “mutual selection.” If you are unsure about joining an organization, you can always defer a bid and wait until the next semester.
