We are excited that you have chosen to begin your college career at Georgia Southwestern State University. During this fun and exciting time in your life there will be plenty of activities for you to get involved in. One of these areas is Greek Life. The Greek System as a whole has been found on college campuses for over a hundred years.
When determining whether or not to go Greek, there are 6 basic principles that the Greek system participates in. These principles are: Philanthropy, Leadership, Athletics, Scholarship, Social, and Brotherhood/Sisterhood. Each of these principles is important to the Greek System and each organization stands behind these ideals.
The Greek System has been at Georgia Southwestern State University for almost 45 years. GSW’s Greek System is very strong and is always looking to add new members. The Greek System at GSW consists of three governing councils. These councils are listed below with their recruitment methods:
