New Member Programs

Orientation to Fraternity and Sorority Life

For those interested in learning about fraternities and sororities at Miami University, we have developed a course that will introduce you to the community and our shared expectations. If you would like to be added to the course, please email

All those who anticipate joining a fraternity or sorority are required to complete the course and will be added to it in order to fulfill their eligibility requirements for receiving and accepting a bid. 

Completion of this course is required for all interested in joining the community. However, completion of this course does not guarantee an invitation to membership.

Greeks Step Up

Greeks Step Up is a bystander intervention program that looks at the topics of Hazing, Sexual Violence, and Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Each New Member who has joined since the last Greeks Step Up program is required to attend. Sessions will be held from Mid-February to Early March. Your chapter will be assigned a specific date to attend the program. These dates will be communicated to chapters at a later date.

If for some reason you are not able to attend the date selected for your chapter, please contact your chapter's new member educator for next steps in ensuring you attend a Greeks Step Up session.
