Joining

Joining a fraternity or sorority at Babson will enhance your college experience and provide you with numerous leadership opportunities.

Even if you think that Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) is not for you, we encourage you to meet the members of each chapter. FSL 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

There are two ways to join an NPC Sorority here at Babson. We are on a deferred recruitment schedule which means that first year students cannot join until the Spring Semester of their First Year.  Upperclassmen & Transfer students may join either in the Fall or Spring Semester. The Panhellenic Council holds multiple events throughout the year for Potential New Members (PNMs) to learn more about sorority life. Recruitment Registration goes live on October 1.

Recruitment consists of three rounds in which potential new members (PNMs) attend gatherings hosted by each chapter. The chapter women get to know one another and share personal stories about what 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. PNMs are led through recruitment by a team of Recruitment Counselors 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 an IFC fraternity at Babson, you must participate in recruitment events held by the fraternities. Prior to recruitment officially beginning, IFC & each chapter will hold various events for PNMs to learn more about the values of the organization. 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.

Joining a National Pan-Hellenic Council Fraternity or Sorority

Babson is proud to be a part of the larger City- Wide Community of NPHC Organizations. To join an NPHC fraternity or sorority at Babson, you must participate in intake and informational sessions hosted by the respective fraternity or sorority.  In recent years, Babson students have become members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., & Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. If you interested in joining a City-Wide Chapter of any of the Divine Nine (9) Organizations, please contact Emily Kunkle, ekunkle@babson.edu.
