On April 13, we are holding our 2nd annual Greek Preview Day, a daylong orientation program, which provides an opportunity for UNT’s incoming freshmen and transfer students to create a connection to the university community prior to the start of classes. This orientation is also designed to expose current non-Greek UNT students to the benefits of membership in a Greek organization.
Last year, 44% of the students that attended Greek Preview Day joined a fraternity or sorority in Fall 2012!
Students will come to the University Union on April 13, 2012, check in, and then will get to explore an organization fair with representatives from the Greek Chapters. Following the organization fair, students will attend a welcome session and short panel discussion featuring a prominent Greek alumni and the Dean of Students. Specialized break-out sessions will begin after the welcome session and panel discussion. These are general education sessions that will cover information regarding fraternity and sorority recruitment, Greek life traditions, and the value of membership in a fraternal organization. After a tour of on-campus Greek housing, students and parents are invited to attend a tailgate lunch and the annual spring Green and White football game. Attending the tailgate and football game provides a unique opportunity for the community to support athletics and expose incoming students to Mean Green spirit. It is also our intention to expose them to many things that Denton has to offer our incoming students and their families. After the game, students are invited to attend a concert with their family members. It will be a day full of fun activity!
The University of North Texas Greek Life Office has been dedicated to creating opportunities for campus involvement for students since 1952. Membership in one of UNT’s 40 Greek organizations provides invaluable experiences for those members as they embark upon their educational journey as undergraduate students. Sorority and Fraternity members are provided opportunities for growth in areas such as: leadership development, academic achievement, community service, and friendship. Individuals involved in the Greek community discover a place that not only allows them to flourish personally, but where they can also be involved in promoting the good of the university through connections with other campus organizations and the Denton community.
Any incoming freshman with a 2.75 cumulative GPA and transfer students with a 2.5 cumulative GPA and their family members. Are you currently a UNT student who wants to learn more about Greek Life? This event is also for you!
The event is free to attend!
