Greek FIRE: First-year Initiates Reaching Excellence
Greek FIRE is an optional programming series for fraternity and sorority new members to compliment chapter new member education and prepare new initiates for success as Drexel students and continued leadership in the fraternity and sorority community. Any fraternity or sorority new member may participate once they have signed a bid with their chapter. It is preferred that the program be started before the new member is initiated but it can be completed anytime during their first year of membership.
Greek FIRE challenges each new member to create a Plan of Study in which he/she will attend certain programs or activities in a number of areas. Each member has the option to choose the specific programs and activities fit their needs and schedule. Participation will be documented through the submission of a Greek FIRE Reflection forms for each program/activity.
New members completing the program will receive recognition and certificate of completion. In order to complete the program, the student must complete the pre-survey, the submission workbook, and a post-survey, as listed below.

What people are saying about Greek FIRE:
"At the time when I decided to pursue completing Greek FIRE, I did not know it was going to be so impactful to my college career. However, looking back, I can say that I developed as a person because I completed the Greek FIRE curriculum. Greek FIRE opened my eyes to so many resources and opportunities that Drexel University offers, which I would not have been able to take advantage of without Greek FIRE."
"I feel that I have grown as a person by completing this program. There is so much to learn relating to values, safety, and community. Some things that I learned were a positive reinforcement, and others were completely new, and something I would not have learned without this program."
"I feel like I gained a better perspective of Drexel University and the programs it has to offer. Normally I would not have attended some of these programs, and at first I was curious if I would like them. In the end it was a lot of fun and I was able to meet many interesting people."
