Fraternity & Sorority Life
New Member/Aspirant Education
Students who are offered bids and accept them begin the process of becoming educated about the chapter. The length of this process, as well as much of its content, is regulated by the chapter's national headquarters. Educational programs are conducted in as little as four weeks to as many as ten. All activities should be easily connected back to the values and ideals of the organization. Chapter history, songs, service and philanthropic activities are all part of the educational process. New members can expect to participate in meetings, study sessions, campus programs, community service projects and other chapter activities.
Muhlenberg College does not tolerate hazing. Any chapter or individual found participating in such activities will be held accountable for their actions. Please review Muhlenberg's Anti-Hazing Policy for more details. You are strongly encouraged to contact the Greek Advisor with any concern or questions you may have about your student in particular or a chapter as a whole. New Member Education should be a positive experience that upon completion has prepared a student to be an active leader within their fraternity or sorority and on campus.
New Member Education Programs
The following links will provide you with a copy of the education program submitted by each chapter for its new members in the spring of 2012. This schedule comprises all expectationsof new members related to the educational program. The chapter may not add additional requirements without providing them in writing to new members and the Office of Greek Affairs in advance of their implementation. If you have questions about the program you are encouraged to contact the chapter leadership directly.
