Fraternity & Sorority Life
National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)
Since its establishment in 1930, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC) has been at the forefront of securing the concept that "Where there is unity, there is Strength". The main purpose of the National Pan-Hellenic Council is to initiate cooperative actions, maintain and oversee programs, activities, matters of mutual concern and serve as a united voice of representation for all affiliate fraternities and sororities.
The NPHC on campus was formed to coordinate the activities of the 4 active NPHC organizations on campus. Members of the NPHC fraternities and sororities at Tennessee Tech are composed of many diverse and influential individuals who participate heavily in campus activities.
How to Join an NPHC fraternity or sorority
Each NPHC fraternity and sorority brings in new members at various times of the year through a process called Membership Intake. All organizations governed by the National Panhellenic Council have different requirements for membership. These organizations are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for expansion. Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained. These are usually publicized via flyers on campus. If you are interested in joining an NPHC organization or have questions please reach out to the Fraternity & Sorority Life Office.
Requirements to Join an NPHC organization
All students who want to join a fraternity or sorority must have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.5, community service experience, and involvement in clubs or community activities. Nevertheless, each NPHC organization has its own requirements set by their (inter)national organization and the Tennessee Tech chapter. Please contact the Tennessee Tech chapter that you are interested in for more information.
