Meet the Greeks is an opportunity for students to learn more about the Greek letter organizations.

As the start of the first semester in person, in a year and a half commences, the Greek Organizations are ready to show off their current chapters to interested students. Meet the Greeks is an event held for students who are interested in Greek life to see what each organization is about and which one would be the right fit. 

Meet the Greeks is being held on Thursday Sep. 23 in the Harwood Arena from 5-10 p.m. Kean students get in for free with a valid student-ID and $5 for non-Kean students and alumni. Tickets for non-Kean students will be sold in the Harwood lobby on the day of the event. No bags are permitted inside, everyone must have a valid ID to enter the arena and masks are required regardless of vaccination status. 

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. Finally, being back in person, students can enjoy all of the festivities live and decide what organization to choose hands on. 

Students will have an opportunity to walk around and ask questions about each Greek letter organization. From this, one will be able to determine if they want to rush for a sorority or fraternity and which one. 

Any students interested in pursuing Greek life will have to meet the following criteria: 

  • Having earned a 2.6 GPA 

  • Completed 12 or more credits 

  • Submitting a complete Prospective New Member Information Form 

    • Including: full name, ID number and the selected sorority or fraternity to the Center for Leadership and Service for approval 

  • Attend a new member orientation 

The Greek Life at Kean University empowers its members to promote and preserve the ideals of scholarship, service leadership, campus involvement and brotherhood/sisterhood. Greek chapters help students to connect on and off campus with their peers and gain connections in the outside world. Students can form some of the longest lasting friendships, that end up being like family, through their sororities or fraternities. 

Being a part of this family does not stop when students graduate. Many students will have the chance to have a postgraduate association where they can interact with their members, be a part of the programs and opportunities long after graduating. 

For more information about Meet the Greeks or the Greek letter organizations, students can visit the Center for Leadership and Service in the Miron Student Center, Room 219 or email with any questions or concerns. 

Enjoy Meet the Greeks Cougars!
