Frequently Asked Questions

Joining a fraternity or sorority can make the adjustment to college life easier by offering students a support group and friends for life.

A Greek organization is a group of individuals with similar interests bonded together by common goals and aspirations. These bonds are created through membership rituals based on common principles such as honor, friendship, truth and knowledge. Each group works to instill and support these ideals in their members through everyday activities.

Students who live on campus are also more likely to have higher GPAs and graduate faster. Other advantages include:

  • Access to scholastic resources to help students achieve academic goals.
  • Learning leadership skills and hands-on opportunities to practice them.
  • Encouragement to get involved on campus and in the community.
  • Exposure to career and other opportunities through interaction with fellow students and alumni.

There are more than 1,900 students in the Greek community. More than 1,600 live in chapter facilities — 500 of which are first-year students. 

Our community offers 29 chapters whose members make up more than 20 percent of the student population.

Each chapter is self-supported through dues charged to members. In the first year of membership, a few one-time expenses are also collected.

Greek living costs include lodging, meals, Internet, cable, phone service, study and recreation areas, and direct access and involvement in a great community. Costs are incredibly competitive compared to other housing options on campus. The average cost is $3,400 per semester for fraternities and $3,900 for sororities.

The University of Idaho offers orientation programs for students interested in Greek Life during the fall and spring semesters.

Recruitment events are the easiest way to learn about individual chapter houses, meet other students in fraternities and sororities, and immerse yourself in student life on campus.

Fall Formal Recruitment is held in August before fall semester classes begin. The smaller Spring Informal Recruitment is held in February.

New Student Orientation is also held in the fall for first-year students. Those who register for fall recruitment are automatically signed up for New Student Orientation.
