At the start of every semester, each Greek organization at Kean gathers for one huge spectacle to give the students the opportunity of learning about all that is Greek Life at the university. Many students anticipate Meet the Greeks.

Meet the Greeks is known for attracting attendees from across the tri-state area because of its festivities and activities such as performances, games and the ability to network with others, whether they are current students or alumni. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Meet The Greeks will be taking place virtually for the second time via Cougar Link on Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. During this time, each letter organization will have their own rooms to greet guests through either Google Meet or Zoom.

A comprehensive list with all the partaking organizations will be shown through Cougar Link where attendees are free to click on whichever one captivates their interest.

With over fifteen sororities and fraternities with one co-ed organization that the Center for Leadership and Service and Greek Life recognizes, each organization has a unique identity where they are able to express themselves freely and make an impact on the community.

Students that are interested in initiating the new member education process for an organization must meet the following criteria:

  • having earned a minimum 2.6 GPA
  • completed twelve credits or more at the university
  • submitting a complete Prospective New Member Information Form with their full name, ID number and the selected sorority or fraternity to the Center for Leadership and Service for approval
  • attend a new member orientation

All Spring 2021 Greek organization new member education processes must conclude by Friday, Apr. 9, 2021.

Similarly to how it was in person, each organization will have a specific section where students are going to have the opportunity to meet members, learn more about the organization and have a fun time.

It is up to the student to decide which section where they want to have the most fun.

Greek Life strives to promote student development through leadership and community based opportunities along with campus involvement and fraternal friendship to provide scholars with a quality undergraduate experience.

Many students have the chance to have post-graduate association where they are able to interact with their members, be a part of programs and opportunities long after graduation.
