Parents & Prospective Greeks
Being a member of a Greek organization will provide a unique college experience to your student while at the University of Montana. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Involvement provides opportunities for leadership development, emphasizes responsible social interactions, and strictly enforces the University of Montana's zero tolerance policy for hazing.
All of the chapters on our campus are national or international organizations. This being said, the moment your child accepts their bid, they have immediately joined something greater than themselves. Within the Greek community, locally and nationally, your student will find support in countless ways. A few examples of this include, a "big brother/sister" they are paired with during their first semester to serve as a mentor and friend, leadership conferences that some of the members may have the opportunity to attend, and financial support from our local Greek Alumni or the organization itself.
All members are required to participate in UM Allies training, as well as, Sexual Assault and Bystander Intervention Training from our campus' Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC). In addition to these programs, the individual organizations implement alcohol awareness training and have thorough risk management policies.

College is a chance to further your education, both inside and outside of the classroom. Scholars suggest that students who are involved on campus will have a more meaningful college experience and receive higher grades. Greeks agree! Being a member of a fraternity or sorority provides opportunities that enhance your college experience. There is ample opportunity to understand and improve your social skills, organization, time management, event planning, and leadership capabilities. Not only will you graduate with experiences to fill your resume, you will have learned communication and management skills that you can use throughout your life.
Fraternity & Sorority Recruitment
Membership in a fraternity or sorority is through a mutual selection process, known as recruitment. Participating in recruitment provides an excellent opportunity to meet people and learn more about the Greek community, but in no way requires you to join a chapter.
Join us at an Orientation on August 27 at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Formal Recruitment is August 30 - September 3 at the chapter houses, but meeting in the UC daily. To register, please fill out the Sorority Recruitment Form.
Formal Recruitment will take place August 30 - September 4 at each of the respective chapter facilities. To register, please fill out the Fraternity Interest Form.
