Due to COVID-19 leadership and chapters are taking every precaution in facilitating students learning about Greek life in person under the University and health departments restrictions and guidance. Still, we know that some individuals may not be comfortable with anytime "face to face/in person" interactions. In the following form please indicate your type of participation. Regardless of what best method you may choose, be assured that you will receive fair and full consideration.
Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifetime commitment here at UW-Whitewater it means you are joining our family. To join, our community standards have set the following requirements to join:
Inquiring or participating in learning about organizations DOES NOT REQUIRE you to join a Greek organization, nor does it obligate any Greek Organization to offer you membership. There is no charge either. Our community has two styles of joining. Those are formal or informal recruitment and intake processes.
Each is defined below:
Formal Recruitment is the primary selection period of the year for potential new members that include scheduled events for entertaining and selecting new members. In the fall prospective members have the opportunity to learn more about each sorority or fraternity that participates in formal recruitment. This process allows individuals to become acquainted with each organization to make an informed decision about membership.

An intake process is the educational process that one goes through in order to become a member of an organization. This process is different for each organization that does intake. In general, a potential new member decides which organization to join by showing interest towards a particular organization in ways such as attending the organization's events, contacting the president of the organization, etc.
