Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations dedicated to the development of character and leadership. Each organization subscribes to a specific set of core values and beliefs that incorporate concepts of brotherhood or sisterhood, service to the College and community, scholarship, leadership, and building relationships congruent with the specific organization’s ideals and traditions.
Full-time Moravian College students who have completed at least one semester are strongly encouraged and welcome to participate in fraternity or sorority recruitment. Transfer students must have completed at least one semester of college prior to participation. Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.25 to participate in recruitment. However, individual organizations may have a higher academic expectation for membership.
Each spring semester, normally in late January or early February, Formal Recruitment takes place. This is the first opportunity for first year students to join fraternities and sororities on Moravian’s campus. Information regarding Formal Recruitment is available late in the fall semester.
Many of Moravian’s Greek organizations recruit during both the fall and spring semesters, outside the formal recruitment period. In mid-September, Greek Life sponsors Informal Recruitment Week for upperclass students where each chapter hosts a recruitment event and bids are distributed on the Friday afternoon. Information regarding Informal Recruitment is available at the beginning of the fall semester.
