Meet the chapters of the Multicultural Greek Council at many of our events! A full list of our events can be found on the FSL calendar.
MGC uses Facebook and Snapchat, and we would love to connect with you on both! Follow on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MulticulturalGreekCouncilCSU/ and add us as a friend on Snapchat @mgc_csu.
Fraternities and sororities in MGC host recruitment events that vary from chapter to chapter. All organizations hold at least one public meeting or event (informationals) intended to engage interested students, some hosting several throughout the academic year. At these events students have the opportunity to learn more about the organization and specific requirements for membership. Check out the organization pages for more information.

Do I need to be of a certain race/ethnicity to join MGC fraternities/sororities?
No, MGC chapters are open and welcoming across the board of all cultural backgrounds. What is important to recognize is that an organization’s foundations may be rooted in a particular cultural experience that shapes the chapter and its members. Organizations that are multicultural in interest or experience also have differences in the way they articulate and promote multiculturalism. That is why it is important to know about both the organization’s story and the culture of the chapter at CSU.
Why does MGC call new member education “intake” and what does it mean?
‘Intake’ honors the uniqueness of each MGC organization’s education process. MGC chapters bring in either a new class or line through a process that is either ‘open’ (meaning public) or ‘closed’ (meaning private). Intake includes a variety of activities including but not limited to interviews, bonding activities, and educational meetings. For some organizations the end of “intake” is celebrated with a new member presentation (sometimes called step outs or showcases). It is important to ask about membership expectations as you meet and seek membership in an MGC organization including about the type of intake process the chapter conducts and if the chapter has class/line presentations.
What happens if I choose not to continue in an intake process once I’ve started?
You have no obligation to complete an intake process of any organization. If there are any difficulties in the process or additional concerns arise, please contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
What if the organization I want to join is not currently recognized at CSU?
It is possible to invite (or bring back) organizations to CSU depending on the organization’s willingness and ability to expand/recharter as well as the Multicultural Greek Council’s ability to recognize a new organization. The process of beginning a new chapter requires requirements be met through the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and the SLiCE office. Contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life who can support your search for membership in a culturally-based fraternity or sorority not currently at CSU.
What if I have a question that has not been answered yet?
