Board of Trustee Statement on Membership in a Non-Recognized Fraternity or Sorority

No student may rush, pledge, perpetuate, engage in initiation activities, or be a member of a fraternal or social organization not recognized by the College. Anyone engaging in those activities, either as a member, recruiter, or potential pledge, will be suspended for a minimum of one year and may be subject to additional penalties that could include expulsion.

A fraternal or social organization shall be covered by this rule only if its leadership and/or a significant number of its members are Union College students. Any student who is uncertain about the legitimacy of any group is encouraged to inquire in either the Student Activities or the Dean of Students Office.
