  • Act in conjunction with member fraternities and the University to promote and maintain high social and moral standards
  • Provide programs and services to member fraternities
  • Act as a liaison between member fraternities and other student organizations, the student body, the faculty, and the administration of Vanderbilt University
  • Foster the development of a positive relationship between the community and member fraternities
  • Institute policies and rules that will further the mission of Greek Life at Vanderbilt University
  • Work collaboratively with the Panhellenic and National Pan-Hellenic Councils on programs, activities, and events

Joining a Fraternity

The deadline for registering for recruitment for Spring 2014 was December 2 at 5 pm. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Greek Life at 322-2048 or greeklife@vanderbilt.edu

Freshmen men interested in pledging during their second semester should meet as many fraternity members during the fall semester and learn about the various activities sponsored by each chapter. The more people you meet in fraternities, the more options are likely to be available to you at the conclusion of the process. You should also keep in mind that friends made during your freshman year at Vanderbilt will be lifelong friends, regardless of fraternity affiliation.
