Fraternity and Sorority Life
Greek life provides valuable opportunities for personal, intellectual and social development.
Coming Together. Giving Back.
Commitment to personal and organizational excellence is the cornerstone of the Queens Greek experience. Joining a Greek organization gives you opportunities for personal, intellectual and social development. Queens Greeks have developed their own standards of excellence to demonstrate their commitment to these areas.
And, of course, our Greek system creates many opportunities to meet new friends and deepen existing friendships. Greeks come together for Formal Recruitment, Rush, mixers, formals, Greek Week and retreats every year. Each organization supports philanthropy through fundraising, community service and awareness events.
How to Get Involved
National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)
The Queens University of Charlotte National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is composed of twoorganizations, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
These organizations conduct a process called "intake" for aspiring members. They are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for expansion. Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct membership intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained.
These are usually publicized via flyers on campus and social media. Anyone interested in joining an NPHC organization will learn about the organization's specific requirements for membership by attending that organization's Interest Meeting.
Top Five Things You Can Do to Show Interest in an NPHC Chapter
- Attend chapter programs and events.
- Attend an interest or informational meeting for the chapter(s) in which you are interested.
- Get to know members of the organization at every opportunity (Meet the Greeks, Unwritten Rules, and other community events)
- Research information on the internet about the group(s) in which you are interested.
- Speak to your own involvement on campus (clubs, community service, etc.)
The Queens University of Charlotte Panhellenic Council is composed of four organizations, Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Kappa Delta, and Phi Mu.
Panhellenic consists of an Executive Board, featuring a delegate from each of then four sororities. Panhellenic seeks to unify the individual chapters and strengthen the sorority community. These organizations conduct primary recruitment annually during the fall semester (typically mid to late September) and advertise their recruitment registration processes through individual chapter and community social media.
