"Joining the Greek system is a great opportunity to make a close group of friends that gives you a strong support system through coming years"
- Shannon Soper, Phi Lambda Omicron
Thinking of joining a Greek organization? At Pacific University, fraternities and sororities typically conduct recruitment in the fall semester during October and in the spring semester during February. Recruitment is done informally, so the activities and time commitment varies per group. You are encouraged to contact the president of an organization you are interested in to get more information on their group’s recruitment.
The Four Pillars of Greek Life
Greek groups are values-based organizations. While some unique values may vary between groups, all Greek groups at Pacific University share a set of values known as the Four Pillars of Greek Life.
