Here are some additional tips to help you decide on the right chapter for you during rush week:

  • Research each fraternity’s national website.
  • Be yourself: our students are excited to get to know you and learn about your unique characteristics.
  • Ask questions: this is an opportunity for you to learn about the organizations and what it means to be a brother in their chapter.
  • Have fun: this is a great opportunity to meet other students and explore the benefits of lifelong fraternity membership.

Membership Selection

Northern Arizona University Greek organizations appreciate the benefits of diversity and have designed their membership selection processes to offer a mutual exploration for chapters and prospective members alike.  Every student is welcome and encouraged to participate in Greek membership selection.

The Northern Arizona University Greek system encourages participation of students from diverse backgrounds.  The Greek philosophy promotes self-worth, human dignity and positive image.  Discrimination on the basis of race, ethnic background or economics will not be tolerated in any area of membership selection. 

Each chapter will affirm its compliance with membership selection processes that are in accordance with the NAU student organization non-discrimination statement as set forth below:
Northern Arizona University prohibits discrimination in organizational membership on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religion, age, or veteran status. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 106.14, makes an exception for social fraternities and sororities with regard to gender requirements for membership.
