Welcome to the Stevens Institute of Technology fraternity and sorority community! Our community is dedicated to community, leadership and scholarship. Stevens has a long and illustrious history of supporting sororities and fraternities, spanning over one hundred years. Our organizations continue to live up to their common values and the University’s principles.
The Office of Student Life (OSL) committed to extending assistance and resources to Greek organizations through programs, resources and advisement. Along with our 15 individual organizations the OSL works in collaboration with the three governing councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) and the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC). In additional the Greek community is the home to Order of Omega, the national Greek honor society.
It is the hope of the fraternal community that interest student explore all that the Greek Life as to offer. Should you have questions please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Life, Nathalie Waite Brown or organization presidents.
The process of joining a fraternity or sorority can be stressful, as potential members try to fit the mold or stereotype of the person they think an organization is looking for. The best advice we can give you is to keep an open mind and BE YOUR SELF.

How do I learn more about Greek life?
Each organization will host different events throughout the Fall semester – commonly called Rush Events, these are great opportunities to meet members and learn about the organization ask questions able the organizations – about the chapter and the national organization, are the members involved around campus -- get to know the members. Another little secret…talk to students affiliated all of our Greek organizations, that’s the best way to learn about who they are and what the organizations has to offer.
How does the recruitment process work?
Fraternity and sorority recruitment events begin the second week of the Fall term. During this time, groups will host a variety of events on campus and off campus. The purpose of these events is to provide interested student with an opportunity to get to know the brother/sisterhood and for them to know you.
Inter-Fraternities Council (IFC) organizations will host events in the home and on campus that will provide men the opportunity to meet the members and to learn about the organization. In January the Fraternities will host closed events, individuals will be invited, during the first week of the semester. The fraternities will then present men with a bid, an offer, to join the fraternity. On the second Friday of the semester all of the men interested in joining a fraternity who has offered them a bid will attend the New Member gathering. At the gathering they will signed a form stating what organization they are choosing to join.
Panhellenic Sororities (Panhel) will host several events together during the Fall. During the first two weeks of the Spring semester Panhel conducts formal recruitment events. All three sororities work together to provide the women of Stevens an opportunity to meet and learn more about who they are. During the process each sorority will create a list of women that they would like to invite to preference parties, these parties are for women who the sorority has selected for membership.
Women interested in joining a sorority will need to sign a preference card and each sorority submits a final list – Interested women and sororities are paired through the Bid Matching process. Bids are available the next day. Those women, who accept the bid, attend the New Member Gathering on Friday night.
Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) Chapters are culturally based, but are not culturally exclusive in membership. Each organization conducts membership intake at various times throughout the year in collaboration with the Office of Student Life. Information is generally provided through invitations, flyers, and campus marketing, at least two weeks prior to any informational sessions. Invitations for membership (bids) are extended during the spring semester.
