Lincoln University Fraternity and Sorority Life
Why should I join a fraternity or sorority?
Joining a fraternity or sorority can be a tough decision to make, but there are many advantages of joining a Greek organization. They are a great way to help students with the transition to college from high school or from time off of school. Each semester members of the fraternity and sorority community maintain a high GPA, complete multiple service hours, and develop critical leaders on campus.
Each semester the organizations at Lincoln University hold information meetings for potential members, which we highly encourage students to attend.
Requirements of members also vary among chapters. The basic requirements for all organizations include:
- Minimum 2.5 GPA
- Full-time enrollment at Lincoln University with at least 12 credit hours completed at Lincoln University
Joining a fraternity or sorority also comes with a significant time commitment as well. During the first semester, there will generally be weekly educational meetings on top of the standard time commitments. The standard commitments for a member are weekly meetings, service events, brotherhood/sisterhood events, and social events. All events may not be required, but it is essential to consider all possible time commitments when making your decision to join an organization.
For more specific information on joining each organization, please see each organization's specific page.
What is the NPHC?
For many, involvement in a fraternity or sorority is an enriching part of college life. At Lincoln University, students have the opportunity to choose from nine fraternal organizations that are members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
The NPHC fosters cooperation among its members as they deal with matters of mutual concern. The NPHC promotes the well-being of its affiliate fraternities and sororities, facilitates the establishment and development of local councils of the NPHC and provides leadership training for its constituents.
