Important Greek Organization Information for New Students IU and its Greek-letter organizations want new students to focus their immediate attention on academics and the transition to college. For this reason, first-year students (male and female) are not allowed to attend Greek social functions during Welcome Week or the first two weeks of classes, whether or not they plan to participate in recruitment. Don’t jeopardize your future involvement with the Greek community by trying to move too quickly.
