Maintaining Recognition

The Department of Greek Student Engagement and Development has implemented a Relationship Statement that establishes each Greek-letter organization on campus.  Within the Statement is information related to the process of becoming a recognized Greek-letter organization at WCU.  The Registration and Recognition (R&R) process outlines the requirements for chapters.  This process involves a registration packet of updated information, attending programs across the University, setting goals, and working with other chapters to encourage unity.  At the end of the academic year, chapters will present their accomplishments and areas of improvement to the R&R Review Committee.

Become a Greek Ambassador

The Greek Ambassador students will serve as leaders of the fraternity and sorority community.  This group will assist the Greek Student Engagement and Development professional staff with promoting the Greek Engagement program through orientation, Greek 101, and alumni events.  Ambassadors will also have opportunities to engage with current members by assisting with New Member Education Day, potentially serving as Registration and Recognition reviewers, and much more!
