Joining a fraternity or sorority at Babson will enhance your college experience and provide you with numerous leadership opportunities.
Even if you think that fraternities/sororities are not for you, we encourage you to meet the members of each chapter. Fraternity/sorority life offers students amazing bonds of brotherhood/sisterhood and an irreplaceable home away from home. Additionally, all chapters provide service and philanthropic opportunities, lifelong networking, and career development opportunities often with an international connection.
Joining a Panhellenic Sorority
To join a sorority at Babson, you must participate in a formal recruitment process. This experience is designed to facilitate a mutual selection between the potential new member and the chapter. During this time, potential new members have the opportunity to meet with all of the chapters on campus in order to make an informed decision about which chapter they would like to join. You must register for recruitment through our online system when it becomes available.
Recruitment consists of a three rounds in which potential new members (PNMs) attend gatherings hosted by each chapter. The chapter women talk, perform skits, sing songs, and share personal stories about what the sisterhood means to them and showcase the values promoted by their organization. As recruitment progresses, PNMs and sororities list their choices in order of preference and are matched with a chapter based on mutual selection. There also will be recruitment counselors along with members of Panhel’s Executive Council who will be with you every step of the way to answer any questions you might have about recruitment or sorority life at Babson.
Joining an Interfraternity Council Fraternity
To join a fraternity at Babson, you must participate in recruitment events held by the fraternities. Prior to recruitment officially beginning, each chapter will host a Values Night so that interested men can visit each of the chapters before recruitment events officially begin. From there, it is up to each chapter to plan and implement recruitment events as they see fit within Babson and national guidelines.
The events are designed to facilitate opportunities for the members of the fraternities to get to know potential new members and so that potential new members can get to know them. This allows both parties to make an informed decision about membership. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Interfraternity Council leadership or the fraternity/sorority life advisor.
