Fraternities and sororities are recognized by the College through the Campus Activities and Corey Union Office. Recognition allows chapters to have a relationship with the College along with active membership and involvement in the Greek system and its governing boards. In order to be recognized by the College, all fraternal organizations must be associated with a National fraternal organization.
To be eligible to become a member of a fraternity/sorority an individual must be enrolled at SUNY Cortland, be verified as having received an overall GPA of 2.0 or better, and have completed at least 12 credit hours at the College. Transfer students must have a minimum of 24 post high school credit hours and at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. The College does honor the higher GPA eligibility requirements of any of its recognized fraternal organizations. Academic eligibility is reviewed by the Associate Director of Campus Activities and Greek Affairs.
First-semester, first-year students are not eligible to join fraternities or sororities.
September 22 - 26, 2014 is National Hazing Prevention Week
Be a part of the solution!
Stop by our table in Corey Union (Snackbar Hallway) between 11 am and 1 pm OR between 5 and 7 pm every day to pick up information, buttons, magnets or just to sign our petition that says: "We, the undersigned do hereby agree that hazing is wrong and has no place in today's world. Hazing can take place anytime, anywhere, and in any organization. It accomplishes nothing positive and often proves demeaning, disrespectful, and harmful. Hazing is unacceptable and we all need to do our part to put an end to it. We say 'Stop the Hazing' and agree to do our best to be part of the solution."
The following organizations are currently recognized:
NOTE: Effective July 30, 2013, Pi Kappa Phi National pulled the charter of the SUNY Cortland Zeta Omicron chapter. The College also pulled its recognition. Undergraduate brothers were granted alumni status and can wear their letters but no other Pi Kappa Phi and/or Zeta Omicron presence is permissible. If an underground presence takes place it will negatively impact the future possibility of Pi Kappa Phi returning to campus.
Co-Educational Service Fraternity:
SUNY Cortland Greek Multicultural Council (GMC)
SUNY Cortland InterGreek Council (IGC)
SUNY Cortland Panhellenic Council (Panhel)
