The Emerson College Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) system represents more than 100 years of student leadership, campus involvement, community service, academic achievement, and social development. Since the founding of our first chapter in 1902, our fraternities and sororities have provided students with a wealth of experiences that complement the College’s?educational mission.
Membership in one of these organizations is an enjoyable and educational experience. Opportunities are available to all students regardless of gender, race, religion, national origin, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
Emerson College currently recognizes ten Fraternity and Sorority organizations: four sororities, three fraternities, and three co-educational fraternities. Each organization is unique with its own traditions and values, but each shares a commitment to scholarship, friendship, philanthropy, community service, and involvement.
Wanting to become a member of Fraternity and Sorority Life can feel intimidating and overwhelming. You've probably heard stories from friends at other colleges about their rush week and pledging and how stressful the process can be. At Emerson, we strive to create a recruitment process that helps any student find an organization best suited for them, as well as a new member education process that prepares potential new members for joining one of our esteemed organizations.
Because joining a fraternity or sorority is a serious commitment, both in time and resources, Student Leadership and Engagement hosts New Member Info Sessions prior to the start of the recruitment process. All students going through recruitment are required to attend one of these hour long sessions. These mandatory informational sessions will give you the resources and tools to be more prepared during FSL Recruitment. Emerson IDs will be swiped at the New Member Info Session and you must be present the entire session. This session is mandatory and there will be no exceptions made.
Spring 2019 Sessions will be held at the following dates and times:
- Wednesday, January 23 - 12pm - Multipurpose Room (150 Boylston St.)
- Thursday, January 24?- 12pm - Multipurpose Room (150 Boylston St.)
- Monday, January 28?- 5pm - Multipurpose Room (150 Boylston St.)
- Tuesday, January 29?- 5pm - Multipurpose Room (150 Boylston St.)
- Wednesday, January 30?- 6pm - Bill Bordy Theater (216 Tremont)
After you attend a New Member Info Session, you are free to attend recruitment events that occur in the first two weeks of the semester. At those events, ask questions of current members to find out if the organization is a good fit for you. Take time to to learn more about the recruitment and selection process. Find out about membership requirements and any financial obligations to the organization. Be yourself and enjoy the chance to get to know our chapters better.
Each organization has different criteria for becoming a member.
- All FSL organizations require at minimum a 2.0 Grade Point Average, although some may require a higher GPA average.
- Most organizations require full-time student status, although some may allow part-time students to join. Please contact individual chapters for more specific information on becoming a member.
- All organizations require some level of financial commitment. Paying regular dues not only keeps our organizations running, paying dues is an important part of being a good brother or sister.
We know one of the biggest concerns in joining a fraternity or sorority is the potential for hazing. Emerson College takes the topic of hazing very seriously.
Hazing?is defined as any action or situation that recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with any student club/ organization operating under the sanction of the College.
Our fraternities and sororities are trained on the importance of creating a safe environment for all of our community and pledge to not engage in behaviors that are dangerous or harmful to others. If you are concerned about an Emerson College student or student group that has engaged in hazing, please report your concern by completing this?online?bet on share pricesform.
