Each chapter has their own requirements for filling their space but newest members are often called upon first to fill the open spaces. Students are permitted to live in fraternity or sorority housing after their first year of residence at W&J. All ten fraternity and sorority houses are non-smoking residences. In addition, some organizations strive to maintain substance-free housing for the safety of their members.

欺侮

Hazing is illegal in Pennsylvania and does not have any place in the activities of our Greek organizations. Fraternity and Sorority students are educated about the dangers of hazing and how to seek assistance if they witness it. Washington & Jefferson College does not condone hazing or hazing-like activities and all of our national organizations have policies against hazing. Any suggestion of hazing is fully investigated and appropriate actions taken. If you feel that your student may be participating in or is the target of inappropriate activities associated with hazing, you should contact the 欺侮 hotline at 1-888-668-4293.
