Membership selection in NPHC is an individualized process that is different for each organization. Chapters choose the time when they will take new members. This process, known as intake, generally begins with an interest meeting followed by a period of membership education. The membership process culminates with initiation and a New Member Presentation, or "coming-out" show in which the organization's new members are revealed to the community.
NPHC chapters embrace a lifetime commitment philosophy and aim to assure the continuance of academic achievement, political awareness, and community service. We strongly encourage those interested in the Membership Intake process to contact the respective NPHC organizations for more information. If you are not sure where to start or would like more information, please contact our Assistant Dean of Students - Fraternity & Sorority life at 256-782-8492.
In order to participate in the intake process with any NPHC organization at JSU you must first attend NPHC Expo. Expo will give you the opportunity to learn more about the seven NPHC organizations, which are currently active at JSU.
All of our IFC organizations participate in open recruitment. Open recruitment means that any prospective member can join one of our IFC recognized organizations at any time. If you are interested in joining, start talking to fellow fraternity men in your classrooms and following us on our social media pages @ JSUFSL. If you are not sure where to start or would like more information, please contact our Assistant Dean of Students - Fraternity & Sorority life at 256-782-8492.
All five of our National Panhellenic Conference sororities participate in formal recruitment at the beginning of each school year. Throughout this week those participating will get a chance to meet all the sorority women, see each organizations philanthropy, learn what sisterhood really means, how each organization follows their values, and hopefully find their new home!
