“Oh, they’re just Greeks!”
You may have some preconceptions of fraternities or sororities from popular movies that depict reckless party animals majoring in debauchery. These stereotypes make for good (and funny) movies, but the reality is that the Greek fraternities and sororities of today are reputable organizations that offer fellowship, academic support, leadership training, and participation in campus activities and philanthropy in the community.
It’s a Decision that you Shouldn’t Make in a Hurry
At Sigma Beta Rho, we don’t feel anyone should be rushed into a decision that’s this important. After all, joining a fraternity is a lifelong commitment.
Our recruitment process usually begins by receiving referrals from Sigma Beta Rho brothers, campus leaders and alumni who personally can recommend young men with panache and integrity. Unlike traditional “rush process” which takes place two weeks out of the year, we are constantly on the lookout for brilliant individuals all year long. We seek out scholars, future business leaders, communitarians, athletes, many different kinds of campus leaders, and all around gentlemen. Once we find guys who are the real deal, we tell them our story and give them much needed fraternity information. We ask them about their ambitions and goals. At the end of it all, if we feel that it is right for both the parties, we start a friendship that may very well end up being brothers for life.
The Road Less Travelled
Even if you find out Sigma Beta Rho is not the perfect choice for you, we encourage you to get involved with Greek Life. The right fraternity (or sorority) can enrich your college years with rewarding service to the community, leadership training, social activities, academic achievement, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
This applies not just to accepting and celebrating the cultural, racial, sexual, and other differences that characterize our membership, but to an understanding of brotherhood beyond the ranks of our own organization – not just Greek unity, but humanity as a whole. This is imagined as an ideal for which we strive – to make a positive impact in and on the lives of others irrespective of difference.
To cultivate a global leadership network, founded in brotherhood, and impassioned by service to each other and our world.
