Greek Life at a Glance

Interested in joining Greek life? There are 22 Greek letter organizations on campus. Each of these chapters is assigned to a governing body, or council. The four Councils at Valdosta State University are College Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, and National Pan-Hellenic Council. Each council participates in a unique recruitment or membership intake process.

College Panhellenic Council

The College Panhellenic Council participates in a formal recruitment process the week before school starts each fall semester. This process includes a mutual bid matching process where potential new members have the opportunity to meet all six chapters included in the CPC. The week ends in a huge celebration on the front lawn, Bid Day. For more information on CPC chapters or recruitment, visit the CPC recruitment page.

The GPA to register for recruitment is a 2.5 High School GPA as calculated by the Office of Admissions. This is calculated based on your core classes. This is not your final high school GPA or your Hope GPA. Before registering, please check your Admissions GPA.

Current Valdosta State students with an established GPA may join at any time of their collegiate careers with a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits and must be in good standing with the University. As you’re looking at your membership options, please keep in mind that some chapters may have higher GPA requirement for membership.

Interfraternity Council

Multicultural Greek Council

The Multicultural Greek Council participates in a deferred membership intake process. This may or may not occur each semester, depending on the chapter. In order to join an MGC organization, you must have completed at least 12 hours at VSU. Look for interest meetings that are held by the individual fraternities or sororities. At these meetings, you will receive a more in-depth view of the organization hosting the interest meeting both nationally and locally.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council participates in a deferred membership intake process. This may or may not occur each semester, depending on the chapter. In order to join an NPHC chapter, you must have completed at least 12 hours at VSU.

At the beginning of every semester, the NPHC of VSU hosts an NPHC informational. This is an opportunity for those persons who are unsure about the process of meeting and greet all of the fraternities or sororities to ask questions and obtain more information regarding the organization's history, informational, academic and financial obligations, and on-campus events without the fear of showing preference for one organization over another.

It is important that each interested student take the time to learn about the history, aims, and national programs of each organization before joining any NPHC fraternity or sorority to fully appreciate and understand the depth of Black Greek Letter Organizations. For more information on NPHC Chapters and the intake process, visit the National Pan-Hellenic Council site.
