G reek Life

at UNT

Since 1952, the University of North Texas Greek community has been a viable and integral part of campus life. With four councils consisting of 42 fraternities and sororities, our Greek community offers a unique and lifelong involvement experience. Membership in a Greek organization can be one of the most significant experiences for a college student. The value of Greek Life for students who choose to participate is the melding of almost every segment of the campus community into one cohesive program. Greek Life promotes the experience of self-governance, leadership development, academic achievement, community service, social opportunities and friendship. The four councils at The University of North Texas strive to promote the four pillars of the Greek community: •Scholarship •Leadership •Service •Brotherhood/Sisterhood These core values guide our everyday way of life. Greek Life provides an opportunity to grow as an individual, but within an environment of others who share your commitment to the founding principles of your organization. We firmly believe that a Greek experience at its best can have a significant and positive impact on a student during his or her collegiate years and after college as well.

Panhellenic Recruitment Team

Each year, some of the most authentic and influential leaders of UNT’s Panhellenic community are selected to serve as Rho Gammas and Logistics Team Members. They promise to act as confidants and mentors to the Potential New Members and uphold the standards of the recruitment process while remaining enthusiastic and living the core Panhellenic values of service, scholarship, leadership, and sisterhood. Disaffiliated from their chapters, the Recruitment Team serves as unbiased mentors, friends, and guides throughout the week and help with the planning and coordinating of the recruitment process. They are trained for their role as your listener, role model, cheerleader, fashion stylist, confidant, coach, and most of all friend.

and Sisterhood

Campus

Involvement

Joining a sorority is the beginning of new experiences. You’ll make new friends and find a home away from home. Sisterhood represents bonds of friendship and unity that last a lifetime. These bonds are not only shared by individual chapter members, but also between chapters around the nation, due to the history and ideals upon which each chapter was founded. Not only will you learn to live with others, but through sharing the same experiences, environment, and interests you will develop a very special closeness to those around you. As friends, you will share your success, happiness, and occasional evenings just relaxing at the chapter facility. Sisterhood is more than wearing Greek letters and attending chapter meetings and events. It is a feeling and sense of belonging. It is the feeling of being yourself and being respected for your individuality. Sisterhood is the making of friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Each year, Greeks participate in a variety of university organizations and events. You will be encouraged by your chapter to become involved in campus-wide activities. Greek life is a great springboard to campus involvement such as student government, special interest clubs and organizations, the Panhellenic Association, intramural sports and many others. Greeks are involved in Family Weekend, University Day, Make a Difference Day, The Big Event, and the annual Homecoming parade and festivities. Striking a balance between academics and social activities is an important part of college life. Involvement in both areas provides a well-rounded collegiate experience, which is an appealing asset to potential employers. Because the university greatly supports the Greek community, it is important that we, as Greek women, give back to our campus by being involved in all that it has to offer.


Service and

Philanthropy Greek women’s interests and concerns go beyond the confines of campus life. Sororities sponsor a multitude of activities each year to impact the local community and earn money for special philanthropies or identified projects. Each chapter also donates its time and efforts to a particular project, either locally or nationally. The National Panhellenic Council as a whole also contributes its efforts to The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation. The Circle of Sisterhood is an organization that urges sorority women across the nation to raise money and awareness for girls and women facing poverty and oppression. It allows sorority women to break the barriers of affiliation, age, and color and come together to give young girls and women facing poverty and oppression the chance to receive an education. The University of North Texas Panhellenic Council is a proud sponsor of The Circle of Sisterhood and continues to raise awareness on campus as well as in the Denton community.


Scholarship Academic achievement is a significant component of your future success. One primary purpose of the Greek community is to encourage and develop high scholastic performance among its members. To participate in recruitment, entering freshmen must have a 2.75 GPA from high school. Upperclassmen and students with college credit must have a 2.5 cumulative college GPA. Greek-letter organizations were founded on principles of successful scholarship. With academics as a priority, the Greek community recognizes the importance of directing students into special scholarship programs. Sororities offer many resources and educational opportunities to facilitate high-quality learning for their members. Greek life helps you meet the challenge of balancing academics, while gaining the most from your collegiate experience. Additionally, each of the chapters on campus facilitates a scholarship program to assist both new and active members in achieving academic excellence. Numerous Greeks appear on the Dean’s and President’s List and belong to honor societies including Order of Omega, Rho Lambda, Golden Key, and Mortar Board. Many sororities offer scholarships to members in attempts to encourage continued academic success. Because academics are so heavily stressed within Panhellenic, most sororities on campus maintain grade requirements for selecting new members. Grade requirements are also used to maintain academic success among its members by requiring each member to maintain a certain grade point average throughout her academic career. In relation to the greater UNT community, the all-sorority grade point average is consistently higher than the undergraduate all-women’s average.


Leadership One of the significant opportunities afforded by Greek membership is leadership development. Sororities are self-governing organizations, giving members numerous leadership possibilities. Each chapter also utilizes a committee structure that allows you to be involved in all operational aspects of the sorority. Additionally, chapters provide educational programming in such areas as time management, leadership, and communication. Leadership is not only easily attainable through Greek life, but on campus as well. Greek women currently hold leadership positions in the Student Government Association, North Texas 40, New Student Orientation, Eagle Ambassadors, and many other student organizations. Greek involvement also provides a resource network when seeking employment. Greek alumnae understand the Greek experience of being both a team player and an individual; the desire to excel, both in and out of the classroom; and the commitment to give something back to the community. Greeks often hire Greeks, and in this changing world, it is important to establish relationships with others beyond the boundaries of the university. Through interaction with alumnae, you can begin building bridges.


Chapter

Housing Sorority members have the opportunity to live in chapter houses within walking distance of campus. Seven of the eight sororities have live-in chapter houses, one sorority maintains a non-residential lodge. Chapter housing is for upperclassmen, as freshmen are required to live in university residence halls. Upper class members may have an obligation to live in the sorority house at some point during their collegiate career; however, each sorority establishes its own regulations regarding members living in or out of the chapter house. Rent is determined by each individual chapter but they are all within a close range. Potential new members should ask each sorority about the chapter housing policies.

Sorority

Finances Belonging to a sorority does carry a certain financial obligation. The new member semester is generally the most costly, as several one-time fees are incurred, such as recruitment, new membership, initiation, and your membership badge. Semester dues may include national and chapter dues, social activity fees, insurance, parlor fees, and Panhellenic dues. Most chapters require dues to be paid at the beginning of the semester. However, some chapters offer payment plans for women who are unable to pay the entire sum at once. Estimates may be different for women living in the chapter house. Rent is determined by each individual chapter.

F requently

Asked Questions What if I am a Legacy?

It is important to know that being a Legacy does not guarantee an invitation to membership in a sorority, nor does it obligate women to join. It is up to the discretion of each individual chapter to decide whether they are interested in extending membership to a legacy. Likewise, no Potential New Member has to choose the sorority in which she is a legacy to. Each Potential New Member going through Formal Recruitment should consider their compatibility with each sorority. It is important to note that sororities often change over time and vary between campuses. Please keep an open mind and consider all sororities!

What is a recommendation?

Is it required?

A recommendation is a personal letter of reference provided by an alumna of a sorority to her sorority’s chapter at UNT. In the “rec”, the alumna will write about your talents and skills that will contribute to the sorority. Recommendation letters are not required at UNT although they may prove helpful in the recruitment process.

How many woman actually get invited to join sororities at the end of Recruitment?

Most women participating in recruitment are invited to join a chapter; however, there is no guarantee that you will receive a bid. Every year we see less than 3% of women released from the recruitment process.

Can I be excused from recruitment events because of prior commitments or classes?

Only academic classes, official university events, illness, or an emergency are considered excused absence. “University events” would include university athletic team practices, marching band, cheerleading, or any of the university’s mandatory programming. All recruitment events that you are scheduled for are mandatory. Failure to attend an event without prior approval of excused absence can result in being released from the entire recruitment process.

Is there a grade requirement for participating in recruitment and to join a sorority?

The UNT Office of Greek Life requires a minimum 2.75 high school GPA for entering freshmen and a 2.5 college GPA for current UNT students or transfer students. Please note that meeting this minimum does not guarantee membership in a sorority.


Recruitment Rules for Potential

New Members Sororities should not be in contact with Potential New Members as of 5/12/2018. This includes social media, text messaging, phone calls, or any other form of contact unless previously acquainted. Sororities cannot meet or have gatherings that include Potential New Members as of 5/12/2018 A potential new member shall consult her Rho Gamma (recruitment counselor) before withdrawing from recruitment. All potential new members must attend ALL parties. If you are unable to do so, please contact your Rho Gamma immediately to make alternative arrangements. Sororities may not promise a bid or membership to a Potential New Member during or before the recruitment process. This includes verbally or in writing. If you find yourself in this situation please report it to Panhellenic, as this is a very serious recruitment violation. A Potential New Member shall not give a promise, verbal or written, to join a certain chapter before Formal Bids have been issued through Panhellenic. A potential new member shall fill out the Preferential Bid Card. By receiving a bid at the end of recruitment, she shall be bound to that chapter for one calendar year, and cannot pledge any other sorority until the next formal recruitment period. Sorority members, alumnae, or patroness may not spend any money on PNMs. No individual chapter, members, or alumnae may mail information to a Potential New Member or make contact in any way. Potential New Members’ family members are not to send money or gifts to a sorority member, chapter, or alumna for the purpose of securing a membership position. From the beginning of Recruitment Orientation through the end of Formal Recruitment, no Potential New Member may visit a sorority chapter facility or individual member(s) outside of scheduled recruitment events as outlined in the schedule provided. No sorority members, including new members and alumna, may visit a PNM during Formal Fall Recruitment. If through the primary recruitment process a potential member accepts a bid and then has her pledge broken by an NPC fraternity or breaks her pledge, then she is ineligible to be pledged to another NPC fraternity on the same campus until the beginning of the next year’s primary membership recruitment period. If any active chapter member, Recruitment Team member, or fellow PNM is acting in a way that does not align with the rules of the formal recruitment process or the standards of our Panhellenic community, please report the incident to a Rho Gamma, staff member, or a member of the Recruitment Team. We are here to help you!

Hypnotic Donuts & Biscuits, one of America’s top donut shops is located right here in Denton, TX, just off the square. Hypnotic Donuts has received numerous recognitions both nationally and locally for their outstanding donuts. We are proud to be the best donuts in Denton 3 years in a row. In addition, we also serve fried chicken biscuits. The chicken is always marinated 24 hours and cooked to order. So swing by our 70’s style vintage location with 2 huge patios (one for people and one for dogs) and grab delicious.
