Greek Life Highlighted During Greek Discovery Day

High school students and current Oklahoma State University students who want to learn more about the award-winning OSU Greek system have an opportunity at the upcoming Greek Discovery Day.  Greek Discovery Day provides students nationwide the chance to learn more about what fraternity and sorority membership has to offer. Members from each of the four Greek life councils: Interfraternity, Multicultural Greek, National Pan-Hellenic and Panhellenic, will be on hand to showcase the benefits of Greek life.

“Last year was the largest Greek Discovery Day with more than 2,500 students and parents in attendance,” said Molly Schuneman, Fraternity & Sorority Affairs graduate teaching assistant.

Ideally, each of the councils would like to increase attendance from states outside of those that border Oklahoma. This goal would help enrich OSU’s fraternity and sorority community by incorporating a variety of backgrounds into the Greek community.

Greek Discovery Day 2017 will take place March 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the Stillwater campus. The event is open to high school juniors, seniors, parents and any non-Greek OSU student. Students will have the opportunities to tour IFC and Panhellenic chapter hours or attend lunch and a yard show hosted by NPHC and MGC. There will also be an informal browse session, mock sorority recruitment and optional evening activities.  

“I recommend attending the event with an open mind,” said Schuneman.  “I hope each student who attends will take the time to learn about each of the councils so they can find a home that best fits them.”

Students can learn more about the event and register online at gogreek.okstate.edu/greek-discovery-day. Registration is $50 per student if received by March 1 and includes a T-shirt. Registrations received after noon on March 1 will not include a Greek Discovery Day T-shirt.

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs oversees four councils, including the Panhellenic, Interfraternity, National Pan-Hellenic and Multicultural Greek Council. The OSU Greek community is composed of more than 3,000 students representing 52 diverse men’s and women’s fraternal organizations.
