Greek Life at a Glance
Interested in joining Greek life? There are 21 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. In 2023, formal recruitment will be held on August 6-12th. 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.
Participating first-year students also have the opportunity to live in the Panhellenic Living Learning Community on the 6th of Georgia Hall. This Learning Community features programming for sorority women by sorority women. Topics include time management, leadership and personal development, mental health, and positive body image workshops.
The College Panhellenic Council participates in an informal recruitment process during the Spring semester. CPC will be hosting a Spring Informational in the third week of the spring semester in the Student Union Theater.
Normally, the Interfraternity Council participates in a formal recruitment process a few weeks into the fall semester. 2023 formal recruitment will take place September 11-16th. For more information on IFC chapters or recruitment, visit the IFC recruitment page.

Multicultural Greek Council
The Multicultural Greek Council participates in a deferred membership intake process. Each chapter decides when it will conduct intake. 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. To learn more about a MGC organization, fill out this interest form.
Looking at your membership options, please keep in mind that some chapters may have a higher GPA requirement or a completed hours requirement for membership. For more information on MGC Chapters and the intake process, visit the Multicultural Greek Council site.
National Pan-Hellenic Council
The National Pan-Hellenic Council participates in a deferred membership intake process. Each chapter decides when it will conduct intake. 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 a preference for one organization over another. To learn more about a NPHC organization, fill out this interest form.
It is important that each interested student take the time to learn about the history, aims, and national programs of each organization before joining an 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.
