MCGC Recruitment FAQs

Do MCGC chapters participate in community service?

Members of MCGC pride themselves on their community service events. Most chapters participate in projects hosted by the UC Berkeley community, and some create their own community service projects (some hosting at least one community service event per month).

Is it hard to maintain academics while in an MCGC chapter?

Academics are a priority for all our chapters. Members often balance working, research, other clubs and their membership. In fact, the All-Greek GPA is typically higher than the All-Campus average! Click here to CalGreeks Academic Reports >

Is being a member costly?

Each chapter has a different set of costs associated with membership. You should contact the organizations you are interested in to get a breakdown of costs for their organization.
