HOW TO JOIN

Joining a fraternity or sorority can be one of the most rewarding experience, as it serves as an excellent way to make friends, feel acclimated to UNF, develop your leadership skills, and so much more! Depending on the organization you are interested in, their membership process may defer from other fraternities and sororities; however, there are general requirements that are required in order to join any Greek organization at UNF.
