Admissions Greek Life

Greek life is community life.

The Greek community at WSU is one of the tightest groups on campus – but it’s big and inclusive, too. More than 20 percent of all students at WSU Pullman are members of the 53 fraternity and sorority chapters on campus.

Forget the stereotypes. Living on Greek Row is fun, for sure, but you’ll also be giving back to the community, gaining new leadership skills, and meeting new friends.You’ll strive for academic excellence as well. In fact, WSU research shows that fraternity and sorority members are three times more likely than other students to graduate on time.

Find out more about Greek life at the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life.

How to join

If you’re an incoming freshman or a transfer student, you’ll get information on the Greek community with the housing packet that’s sent out to all new students. When you fill out your housing application, mark your interest in fraternity/sorority living. Once you’d done that, you’re on the recruitment list.

  • Fraternity recruitment happens informally year-round. After you indicate your interest, they’ll contact you, and you’ll have opportunities throughout the summer and fall to get familiar with the various fraternities and decide which one seems right for you. You can also attend summer recruitment events or sign up for formal recruitment, which is the week before fall semester. Find out more from the WSU Interfraternity Council.
  • Sorority recruitment is a bit more formalized. After you sign up for WSU housing, you can sign up for formal recruitment, which happens on campus the week before fall semester. Find out more from the WSU Panhellenic Council.
  • Multicultural recruitment introduces students of any background to the campus Multicultural Greek community, which includes 16 United Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations. Recruitment coincides with the first week of fall semester classes, and some chapters have recruitment events at other times of the year.
