STEP ONE: Convocation
The purpose of convocation is to give students information about the various groups, membership requirements, and benefits of joining Greek Life.
Convocation is also an opportunity for the Office of Student Engagement to discuss important information about Hazing guidelines, the challenges of joining a Greek-letter organization, and the various guidelines specific to joining an organization at UNA.
STEP TWO: Research and Interest Meetings/Groups or Rush
Attend interest meetings of the organization that you have serious interest in. In order to determine which organization your are interested in, we encourage students to research each organization in order to discern which chapter is a best fit for you. Please note that some organizations do not conduct interest meetings.
STEP THREE: Membership Intake or Member Recruitment
Each organization takes individuals through a Membership Intake process. The process is comprised of an Interest Meeting/Group, Rush, and a formal application process. Each chapter's process has been approved by the national organization.
