Greek Life: Fraternities & Sororities

At AUM, we offer opportunities for students to join a number of Greek life organizations. Joining a sorority or fraternity can be a life-changing experience, as many brothers and sisters from college remain lifelong friends.

These sororities and fraternities are more than social groups. No matter how diverse your background or interests may be, membership in the AUM Greek system facilitates growth in the areas of:

  • Personal development
  • Scholarship
  • Campus and community involvement
  • Leadership

The sororities and fraternities at AUM–through meetings, events, formals, and community and campus-wide service projects–will provide a lifetime of memories and involvement.

National Panhellenic Conference Sororities/Panhellenic Association

Three AUM sororities are members of National Panhellenic Conference and also make up AUM’s Panhellenic Association, a community built upon the leadership, involvement, benevolence, and high academic standards held by its members. Stay current with the Panhellenic Association on Facebook and Instagram. Apply for recruitment today.

How to Join an NPC Sorority

Together, all three chapters host recruitment during Fall semester. Interested women are required to register to participate. Participants visit each chapter and learn their values, academics, and philanthropies. At the end, we practice mutual selection, balancing the preference of each potential new member with the chapters to extend membership bids. 

During Spring Semester, chapters who are not at total will be eligible for additional members. This could be one chapter or all three depending on how many members on each chapter. Chapters will host events as needed to extend membership bids. Women are not required to pre-register to participate and can visit chapters of their choice.

Additional questions can be emailed to panhellenic@aum.edu.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

AUM is home to six of the nine historically African American fraternities and sororities, governed by the AUM chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. This council is an umbrella organization that promotes unity among its affiliate members and monitors their activities. The mission of the National Pan-Hellenic Council is to promote the ideals and standards upon which member organizations were founded. This is done through joint action and programming of events such as service-oriented, philanthropic events and hands-on community projects throughout the River Region.  Stay current with AUM’s NPHC on Instagram.

How to Join a NPHC Fraternity or Sorority

Each NPHC fraternity and sorority brings in new members at various times of the year through a process called Membership Intake. All organizations governed by the National Pan-Hellenic Council have different requirements for membership. These organizations are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for expansion. Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained. NPHC will host a general information session about all of its organizations for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process. This event is called “NPHC Convocation” and is held the third day of fall and spring semester. Additional questions can be emailed to nphc@aum.edu.

Requirements to Join

AUM has a minimum requirement of a 2.5 cumulative GPA for membership. Chapters that take first semester freshman will be eligible based on their graduating high school GPA. A student must be a full time student at AUM to join one of our organization. Some chapters have additional requirements including higher GPAs, completed credit hours, and extra curricular activities.
