Be Greek at EKU!

Thank you for your interest in joining our community! The fraternity and sorority community at Eastern Kentucky University is a vibrant group of motivated, high-achieving students that make up approximately 10% of the full-time undergraduate student population on the Richmond campus.

EKU students who choose to join a fraternity or sorority perform well academically, the combined fraternity/sorority grade point average is consistently higher than the all-EKU undergraduate grade point average.. Click here to view past chapter grade reports.

To experience what fraternity and sorority are 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 listed below.
