Recruitment. Intake. Going Greek. All of these words and phrases are used by fraternities and sororities, and can be a little mysterious. What they all have in common is this: all refer to the process of joining a values-based fraternity or sorority and becoming a member not just for your college years, but life-long.
When you go Greek, it's not like joining a regular club or activity. It isn't a case of just showing up for a meeting once a month or getting together for one event each semester. By choosing to join a fraternity or sorority, you are making a commitment for the rest of your life. With daily interaction and constant opportunities for leadership within the chapter, fraternities and sororities lay the groundwork for lifelong friendships.
