Greek Life: Social Fraternities & Sororities

Greek Life at Pierpont Community & Technical College

Here at Pierpont Community & Technical College, we are proud to offer (among other clubs and organizations) Greek Life - a community or system comprised of select fraternities and a sorority. The long-standing terms "fraternity" and "sorority" refer to groups of men and women (respectively) who join together to offer fellowship, academic support, an outlet for philanthropic service to the community and institution, as well as the opportunity to network for future careers. They are referred to as Greek chapters because they are named according to the ancient Greek alphabet. While some chapters at our institution are considered ‘national’ because of an affiliation with a national organization, other chapters have their own unique heritage and are deemed 'local' due to the fact that they are local in origin.

Greek Life has a strong and rich tradition at hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States and Canada, as well as here at Pierpont. The Greek system offers many opportunities to meet and connect with people, contribute to the community, and develop leadership skills.  The academic benefits are significant as well - research indicates that students who are affiliated with a club or organization are more likely to achieve academically and to persist. 

For more information on how you can get involved, as well as for a listing of Pierpont's Greek organizations, please see below.

How to Learn More & Get Involved 

Each semester, during a certain period of time, the sororities and fraternities hold what is referred to as ‘Recruitment’.  During the Recruitment process, every fraternity and sorority that is in good standing hosts events at which you can get to know them better and vice-versa.  Bids are later extended by each fraternity and sorority to qualifying potential new members whom the organizations feel are a best fit.
