National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) Fraternity and Sorority Intake

Ball State is home to two traditionally African-American fraternities and four traditionally African-American sororities. These chapters recruit through a process known as intake. Although these organizations consist primarily of minority students, they are open to all students at Ball State.

The intake process for every chapter is defined by its national organization. Membership intake consists of attending a meeting, completing an application directly to the fraternity of interest, gaining approval by the organization and learning the the group’s history and traditions, and initiation. The National Pan-Hellenic (NPHC) intake process at the Ball State is designed to give both you and chapter members a fair and equal opportunity to become acquainted as friends.

The NPHC each fall hosts a week of events to welcome students back to Ball State. The week of events allows you to meet members from the chapters and learn more about their events. During NPHC's week of events, they have an NPHC Meet the Greeks that allow you to learn more about their member chapters.

Throughout the year, chapters hold social, informational and educational events, which provide you with the opportunity to meet the members of each organization. When conducting membership intake, chapters hold interest meetings to provide you information and membership forms. Membership intake is held at various times during the year. Please check out the Greek life calendar for dates of informational sessions.
