Joining a Fraternity or a Sorority

Throughout the college experience at John Carroll University, the friendships that our members make within their chapters lasts a lifetime. Whether you come to college not knowing a single person or you come with friends, the opportunity to be a part of a national fraternity or sorority can transcend your JCU college experience. You will gain a “home away from home” and be involved in a wide range of brotherhood and sisterhood activities.

“Joining a Greek organization was something that I had considered, so when it came time to go through recruitment my Freshman year I decided to take the chance and go for it. That was the best decision I could have made for myself. Not only have the men and women I met through Greek Life at John Carroll become my closest and most dependable friends, they encourage me to get involved in my community and are always there to make some irreplaceable memories. If you’re considering joining a Greek organization – go for it!” – Maddie Tobolewski ’20
