The chapters at Georgetown College excel both in and outside of the classroom. The community as a whole has a cumulative GPA that is higher than the over all campus GPA.
They dedicate over 200 hours each year to community service and raise money for a number of national philanthropies. Members also attend leadership conferences and workshops throughout the United States and locally where they not only are able to learn but take opportunities to present as well. These rich experiences help them to develop and sponsor innovative programming on the campus of Georgetown College.
Recruitment at Georgetown College takes place at the start of the spring semester. The women have one week of formal recruitment and the men have one week of informal recruitment followed by a week of formal activities. Recruitment at GC is a mutual selection process and is coordinated by the Panhellenic Council and Inter-Fraternity councils.
