The benefits of being a member of the Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) community are endless. The FSL community offers leadership opportunities, character development, lifelong friendships, academic support and community and campus involvement to name a few. Belonging to an unrecognized group will not give you such opportunities, and many of the resources which would be available to you, aren’t.
The formal recruitment process takes place every fall semester but every house is open to new member intake 365 days a year. Please register for sorority recruitment here.

Hazing is officially defined as any activity expected of someone joining a group (or to maintain full status in a group) that humiliates, degrades or risks emotional and/or physical harm, regardless of the person's willingness to participate.
UNH and the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life enforce a strict No Hazing Policy. If you or someone you know has been hazed or you’ve witnessed an act of hazing, please call the Hazing Hotline at (603) 862-3686.
Every chapter has different membership dues and requirements. Regardless of the bargain that some may feel they get from being a member of Fraternity and Sorority Life, it does cost money. Every chapter is designed to accommodate their members so that they can afford the experience. In this case, payment plans and even scholarships are given in assistance.
Although Fraternity & Sorority Life may seem like a major time commitment, academics always come first. Every chapter has minimum GPA requirements as does the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life. Further, academic support is always being offered at UNH. Tutoring programs, study sessions and educational support workshops are always available to help you reach your goals.
