Parents FAQ

What is sorority recruitment?
Recruitment (formerly known as rush) is a time set aside once or twice a year for non-Greek women to meet sorority members, learn about our sisterhood, and decide which sorority would be the best fit for them. Membership in a sorority is voluntary and is the result of a mutual selection process.

What is a legacy?
A legacy is a sister, daughter, granddaughter, or great-granddaughter of a member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, including the "step" version of each of these relations.


What are Gamma Phi Beta Sorority's policies on the use of alcohol and illegal substances?
Gamma Phi Beta expects its members to obey all federal, state, and local laws, while abiding to the Sorority's policies and standards. Gamma Phi Beta promotes the development of friendship and sisterhood in an alcohol and drug-free environment and actively educates our members about risk management, personal responsibility, and good decision-making practices.

Gamma Phi Beta also has strict guidelines for hosting social events, with the expectation that chapters always provide a safe environment for members. If policies are violated, Gamma Phi Beta Sorority will take appropriate action and ensure that additional education and appropriate disciplinary measures are enforced.

What are the grade requirements for membership in Gamma Phi Beta?
A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.4 from college or 2.8 from high school is required for initiation by Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. Exceptions may be made with approval of the chapter advisor and the chapter's regional coordinator after consultation with the sorority coordinator-scholarship. Our chapters are strongly encouraged to set a minimum high school cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 for entering freshmen and a minimum of the all women's or all sorority average, whichever is higher, for other students.
