We proudly recognize our 25 fraternities and sororities. They work closely with the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Programs and are held to a high set of standards.
Other organizations that may exist as “underground fraternities”:
do not report to or affiliate with OFSP
operate with uncertainty as to their status in terms of membership, behavior and conduct, and organization
are prohibited from affiliating with Tulane University but still recruit our students as members.
Delta Kappa Epsilon (Deke)
Omega Psi Phi (Omega or Ques)
Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike)
Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT)
We strongly discourage students from joining a fraternity that the University does not recognize.
Often people assume that membership in a fraternity or sorority interferes with academic and scholarly pursuits, however, scholarship is an important facet of Greek life.
It’s no wonder that for the past 24 consecutive semesters, the all Greek GPA has been higher than the all-student GPA at Tulane!!
Recruitment Convocation/Final Day to Sign-Up
Chapters host Recruitment Events
Bids issued by staff and IFC officers*
* Often fraternities will tell students they are recruiting that they have a bid from the fraternity. Please note that no student has an official bid from any fraternity until this date.
In the beginning of the spring semester, NPHC will hold “Meet the Greeks,” and individual chapters may also choose to do informational meetings. Informationals are usually scheduled 1-2 weeks in advance.
Intake is supervised by local graduate chapters.
The costs of joining a Greek organization vary between groups and councils. Below are rough estimates:
All dues cover programs, insurance fees, and national benefits. Some also include a meal plan, social events, transportation to events, t-shirts, a chapter house, and more!
Hazing includes, but is not limited to, acts of servitude and/or behavior that humiliates, degrades, embarrasses, harasses or ridicules an individual or otherwise is harmful or potentially harmful to an individual’s physical, emotional or psychological well-being, as an actual or apparent condition for initial or continued affiliation with an group.
