Campus Life

Greek Life

Students may choose to enhance their Newberry College experience with the unique opportunities of Greek Life. Fraternities and sororities promote scholarship, provide leadership opportunities, build lasting friendships, encourage community service and philanthropy, and allow for social and athletic opportunities.

The Office of Greek Life currently advises nine fraternities and sororities; they strive to enhance the student experience while providing programs to foster leadership development, community service involvement, and academic excellence. Greek organizations are governed by their respective councils: IFC, NPC, and NPHC .

Each fall, the Office of Student Activities hosts a "Meet the Greek" night on campus, which offers an opportunity for students to learn more about each of the collegiate chapters. Fraternities and sororities will also host social and community service programs open to the campus before recruitment week to allow students to learn more about Greek Life at Newberry.

Students who are interested in joining a fraternity or sorority will participate in a process called Recruitment. Recruitment involves six of the collegiate chapters, lasts one week, and occurs during the fall semester. If you are interested in joining one of the NPHC fraternities, you will participate in Membership Intake in lieu of Recruitment. Membership Intake begins with informational meetings that occur in the fall and spring semesters.
