Greek Student Engagement & Development

Paws

 

On behalf of Western Carolina University's Department of Greek Student Engagement and Development, Welcome to Catamount Country! 

Greek Life plays an important role on the Western Carolina campus as well as throughout North Carolina and beyond. Scholarship, Community Service, Philanthropic Work, Life-Long Friendships, Leadership Development, Alumni Networking, and Brotherhood/Sisterhood are the common fraternal principles of our chapters.

Being an active member of a collegiate fraternal organization will provide opportunities for students to participate in activities that enhance personal development, promote academic success, and advance leadership skills.  We welcome and encourage our students to take a look at the fraternities and sororities available at WCU.

Recruitment & Intake

  

During this Phase, due to the COVID19 Pandemic, our offices will be making adjustments to our normal traffic patterns during our scheduled business hours. Please be aware of the following changes:

-Please make an appointment with the staff member you are needing to meet with.
-Maintaining physical distancing is a priority inside of our offices. We have measured out six feet and have figured out spacing. We now have a limited amount of seating available.
-Meetings with multiple people will need to be in a meeting room or can happen virtually.
-In accordance with the governor and university, we expect all visitors to always wear a face covering or mask when you come into the office. We feel this is important for the health and safety of the staff and our students.  If this is a problem, we will be happy to meet virtually.  We will not meet face-to-face without a mask.
