Currently there are only FOUR registered and recognized social organizations on our campus. They are listed below. Any other mention of social organizations at Pitt-Johnstown are unrecognized and are therefore not monitored, supported, or endorsed by The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.
Fraternities and sororities regularly sponsor service activities, intramural teams, social events, and educational programs. The groups sponsor academic activities and recognition; the scholastic achievement of members is monitored by the organization.
Delta Chi was formed by the brothers of local fraternity Phi Delta Psi. Phi Delta Psi Fraternity was founded in the Winter of 1962, the second local fraternity after Lambd Sigma Rho. On April 2, 1971, the Brothers of Phi Delta Psi were sworn into the pledge program of Delta Chi. On May 15, 1971, they were fully initiated into the Bond of Delta Chi, twenty-four strong , the Penn State Delta Chi Chapter House.
The Delta Pi Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in Johnstown, Pennsylvania was originally established in 1988 with 28 Founding Fathers. It was re-established in 2009 with 16 Refounding Fathers. Over 300 men have been initiated since its inception.
Joining a Pitt-Johnstown Fraternity or Sorority
While each organization has a set of specific recruitment standards, the university requires that a student have at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average. Further, students must also have a commitment to the values of the Greek community: leadership, scholarship, service, and brotherhood/sisterhood.
The advancement of the Fraternity/Sorority community at Pitt-Johnstown is also a key value in a potential new member. Students who would like to be considered for the Fraternity/Sorority community must participate in a potential new member education workshop with the Campus Activities and Engagement Office before they are eligible to accept bids through our system.
For more information about recruitment, please contact Heather Bloom Hall, Fraternity/Sorority Advisor and the Director of Campus Activities and Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
