Welcome

A Lifelong Adventure

Baker’s seven residential fraternities and sororities host formal recruitment in August.

Recruitment is a perfect time to meet other students, learn whether a sorority or fraternity is for you, and possibly find your place in Baker’s Greek system. If nothing else, give yourself the opportunity to meet new people.
