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: NPC, NIC, and NPHC.
Each fall, the Office of Student Activities hosts a "Meet the Greek" night on campus for students to learn more about our chapters. Fraternities and sororities will also host social and community-service programs open to the campus to allow students to learn more about Greek Life at Newberry.
Students interested in joining an NPC or NIC chapter participate in “Recruitment” which lasts for one week during fall semester. The NPHC fraternities offer “Membership Intake” which begins with informational meetings in both fall and spring semesters.
