Multi-Cultural Greek Council (MCGC) Recruitment Information

The Multi-Cultural Greek Council at the University of California, Berkeley was founded on February 2007 in order to better meet our individual needs, voice our concerns and promote the greater good of our community. As culturally based organizations, we strive to promote and uplift our common heritages and history. As a council we shall uphold our commitment to service, scholarship and the values of sisterhood and brotherhood.

Each individual sorority/fraternity has their own unique membership intake process. For recruitment information, please sign up here for more information and contact the chapter directly.

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 for the 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.
