Welcome to the New Jersey Institute of Technology! As you are making plans for your academic career, I hope you will take advantage of the wide range of opportunities available outside of the classroom. NJIT offers a multitude of student activities and organizations designed to enrich your academic pursuits and enhance your campus life experience.
One avenue to highly consider is Fraternity and Sorority Life. Fraternities and sororities have been part of campus life for 90+ years and make up close to 6% of our undergraduate population with 21 chapters and 500+ students. At NJIT, Fraternity & Sorority Life provides opportunities for personal and professional development, civic engagement, and academic enhancement, all while developing close lifelong bonds with their peers. This will occur through the diverse offering of educational programs, leadership development and civic engagement opportunities, and additional learning opportunities available at conferences offered both locally and nationally.
Although we encourage membership in a Fraternity or Sorority as part of your collegiate experience, the benefits of membership last long after graduating. Fraternity and sorority alumni nationwide indicate that their fraternal membership was a vital component of their collegiate experience; and through alumni networking, they continue to receive long-term benefits from their Fraternity and Sorority affiliations.
Whether you decide to join a Fraternity or Sorority, or not, we hope you will find other ways to stay involved at NJIT and look forward to hopefully seeing you at some of our events throughout the year!
