The Hastings College Greek community is dedicated to the development of future leaders by providing a wealth of leadership opportunities in which members may participate. Greek Life at Hastings College ranges from social and spiritual activities to service and academics. The leaders of tomorrow are gaining their edge from the fraternal experiences offered by Greek Life at Hastings College. Greek membership is one of the best ways to get involved in campus life and discover new friendships.
The Hastings College Greek system benefits from a mix of both local and national organizations; Phi Mu Alpha (Sinfonia) and Sigma Alpha Iota are national groups that are linked with music.
The Inter-Greek Council is the governing board with a mission to build an inclusive Greek community and enhance the collegiate experience by developing opportunities for leadership growth, academic success, and civic engagement through various Greek-oriented activities and competitions. The IGC oversees the yearlong ‘Greek Cup’ competition as well as plans the end of the year all-Greek formal known traditionally as the Greek Dinner Dance.

Beta Chi’s focus is on building a strong Christian brotherhood. The members achieve this by holding a yearly ski trip to Colorado and through participating in numerous community service activities.

Kappa Tau Phi
Kappa Tau Phi’s mission is to build a sense of brotherhood amongst the members that will last a lifetime.

Pi Rho Sigma

Phi Mu Alpha (Sinfonia)
Like Sigma Alpha Iota, Phi Mu Alpha is the only national fraternity on the campus. These men are the counterpart to SAI in the fact that they are grounded in music, however, members of Sinfonia do not have to be involved in music (although encouraged) to benefit from membership.

Psi Theta Epsilon
Psi Theta Epsilon is a men's social fraternity that promotes strong brotherly ties. They are a fun loving group of men that strive to create an inclusive environment where all feel welcomed.
Mu Chi Phi
Mu Chi Phi is geared towards the spiritual formation and development of Hastings College men. We desire to impact the Campus’s view of Christianity through service projects, fellowship-fostering meetings, and events that we participate in together. Our continual hope is to provide the light of Christianity to the Greek Life of Hastings College and Hastings Community in leading by the example of Jesus Christ. If you seek to grow in your Christian faith while forging lifelong friendships with fellow brothers in Christ, then this is the Fraternity for you.
How to Join a Fraternity or Sorority
Fraternities and sororities select their members through a recruitment process. This process begins with the opening weekend of New Student Days. During this time groups are allowed to hold various mixers and informational sessions so that new students can learn about which group would be the best fit.
On the week prior to Rush Week, all students interested in rushing a fraternity or sorority will go through Bid Night. On this night each group is allowed to have one final social to entice membership before bid cards must be turned in and membership solidified. Rush Week follows Bid Night with formal invitations distributed to each member who was successfully chosen by each fraternity and sorority. Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota hold a different rush based on stipulations from their national chapters.
Contact the Colt Kraus, Director of Student Life, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hastings College and the Inter-Greek Council policies mandate that the recruitment process be alcohol-free and students attend an anti-hazing presentation held in conjunction with Bid Night.
