Be Greek at EKU!

The fraternity and sorority community at Eastern Kentucky University is a vibrant group of motivated, high-achieving students that makes up approximately 10% of the full time undergraduate student population on the Richmond campus.

To experience what fraternity and sorority is all about, participate in recruitment or membership intake. Students can explore the various chapters to find the fraternity or sorority that matches their ambitions and aspirations. Additionally, the recruitment and intake process is a great way to make new friends while meeting lots of people from a variety of backgrounds. Visit with current fraternity and sorority leaders when you attend a Spotlight Day or Orientation.

There are three fraternity and sorority governing councils at EKU, each with a unique recruitment/intake process.
