Frequently Asked Questions
I am unable to attend Greek Forum! What should I do?
Excused absences for missing Greek Forum include a death in the family, severe illness, or studying abroad. All of which must be documented. Please re-schedule any other commitments such as work and other similar commitments. Other conflicts will be handled on a case by case basis by the Office of Student Life and Engagement staff.
Can I come talk to the Office of Student Life and Engagement staff about how to get into a particular sorority?
The Office of Student Life and Engagement can only give general information about ALL sororities, not personally counsel any student about any particular organization. All decisions about membership are left solely up to the organizations. The Office of Student Life and Engagement has no bearing on their decisions.
What should I wear to Greek Forum?
The attire is business causal unless otherwise specified.
