Welcome to the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) Intake site! We are really excited to showcase our organizations and what we represent here at the University of Iowa! MGC is proud to be the newest and fastest-growing council on campus. Our council governs multicultural fraternities and sororities that represent Latinx, Asian, and LGBTQ+ communities, yet are inclusive of people of all cultural identities. Learn more about our council here. 

Within the first two weeks of each semester, MGC hosts MGC Orientation. During MGC Orientation, each fraternity and sorority within our council is able to share information about their organization and/or individual chapter with prospective members or those who have questions about Fraternity and Sorority Life in general. This program also explains the benefits and expectations of membership in a Fraternity or Sorority. 

Each chapter will be represented and answer questions at Orientation, however, each chapter will also hold it's own recruitment period at the beginning of each semester. This process is different for each organization so if you have any questions about an organization you are interested in, please reach out to their social media or recruitment chair. Each organization's recruitment events entail informational meetings, philanthropic and education sessions and social events. Any interested students are strongly encouraged to attend these events. Some events may include a hybrid version due to COVID 19 so please reach out if that is something you would like to know more about closer to the dates. We also encourage research on the organizations and attendance at other programs held by the chapter to learn more about the organization and it's members.

FAQs

  • What is the time commitment of joining an organization in MGC?

    Each organization has it's own time commitments and we encourage taking on leadership roles to promote building connections on campus with student organizations and other fraternities and sororities. In general, we equate being in a fraternity or sorority with the equivalent of a 3 credit hour class. 

  • How much does it cost to be in an MGC org?

    Membership dues/fee may include local and national membership dues, room and board (if the organization has a structure), meals and other one-time fees such as initiation or new member fees. We encourage all students looking to join to talk with the organization about their finances. Average costs for each council can be found here

  • I think I want to join. What should I do now?

    Take some time to fill out the MGC interest form. That lets us know you are interested! From there, do you research on our council, our community and FSL as a whole. Make sure to attend the MGC orientation as it is mandatory for anyone looking to join. You can learn more about next steps here

Chapters

  • Delta Lambda Phi Social Fraternity

    About this chapter

    Delta Lambda Phi is a traditional Greek social organization founded by and for a decidedly nontraditional group: gay, bisexual, and progressive men. For over twenty-five years, Delta Lambda Phi has offered these men the opportunity to lead, to grow, and to form lifelong bonds of friendship with other likeminded men. Though it is difficult to adequately describe the Bonds of Brotherhood that are so central to our Fraternity, it is our hope that the material in this section will help give you some idea of what Delta Lambda Phi is about. Here you can learn more about the history of Delta Lambda Phi, hear from our Founder, learn about our guiding purposes, and most importantly, learn what Brotherhood means to us.
