Fraternity and Sorority - Joining

If you are trying to find a fraternity or a sorority to join, you would either need to know someone in that group already, or find an advertisement in the local school paper, or go to the fraternity or sorority house and ask how to become a member.

Here are some things you can say initially:

"Hi, I was interested in joining a fraternity.  What is the process to get in?"
"Hi.  I was wondering what I needed to do to get into this sorority."
"Are you taking in members now?"
"Where can I find information on joining this sorority?"

After the initial sentence, they should respond with more information.  Here is an example.

"We take new members every semester.  All you need to do is fill out this application, and then we will contact you for an interview."
"Every Monday at 10 am, we have an informational session about our sorority.  I highly recommend you attend if you are interested."

If you ask a question about information, they might respond with a question such as,

"What would you like to know?"

You can ask the following questions if you have this opportunity.

"How much does it cost each month?"
"What meals are included with the monthly rent?"
"How many people are in this sorority?"
"What activities do you have in this fraternity?"
"Do you have tours of the building?"
"What is the policy during summer break?  Can we stay in the frat house during the summer months?"
"How long has this fraternity been around?"
