Our chapters, your story
You have a story to create at Boise State. And when you look at our community, see we can help you tell it. Each fraternity and sorority have different passions and interests, but together we are a community that wants our members to find a new home.
How do I join a fraternity/sorority?
Recruitment for our Fraternity and Sorority Life community will take place in fall 2023. Please check out each community’s unique page for more information on their recruitment process.
Register for the Fraternity and Sorority Life Fair on August 21, 2023 from 4-7 PM. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with members from across the community.
For more information, fill out our community’s interest form. Next steps will be shared about the recruitment process from a member of the community.
You can also join us at one of our upcoming interest sessions.
How much does it cost to be in a fraternity/sorority?
As with membership in most organizations, fraternities and sororities charge membership fees. It’s entirely fair to ask for a written breakdown of membership costs and the chapter’s budget before you join. It’s also important to ask about any added costs.
- Interfraternal Organizations: Average chapter dues are $455 per semester for new members and $400 per semester for active members.
- Multicultural Organizations: Average chapter dues are $330 per semester for new members and $225 per semester for active members.
- Panhellenic Organizations: Average chapter dues are $740 per semester for new members and $440 per semester for active members.
Does it cost to participate in recruitment?
It costs $35 to participate in Panhellenic formal recruitment and $10 to participate in Interfraternity recruitment. There is no cost to participate in the Multicultural Greek Council recruitment process.
When is recruitment?

Fall Interfraternal Recruitment

Multicultural Chapter Intake
The intake process for Multicultural Chapters varies by organization. To learn more about their recruitment processes visit our Multicultural Chapters page.
Boise State does not hold formal recruitment/intake process in the spring. However, there are always sororities and fraternities participating in informal recruitment processes. If you are interested in joining a chapter outside of the fall recruitment/intake period fill out the Fraternity/Sorority Interest Form and a member of the community will reach out to you.
Who can join a fraternity/sorority?
All Boise State students are eligible to participate in the recruitment process. Additional requirements such as course load and GPA may exist for some organizations. Transfer, non-traditional, and international students are all eligible to participate in the recruitment process.
Do chapters have houses?
Boise State does not have a Greek Row, but members still find themselves living together in rental homes close to campus. We recommend incoming students take advantage of our on-campus housing options in their first year. For more information, please visit https://www.boisestate.edu/housing/.
Boise State’s chapters have lower membership dues on average due to the absence of chapter house expenses. Instead of meeting in individual houses, chapters meet and hold events in community spaces on campus such as the Student Union Building. This contributes to a strong sense of community among our organizations.
