Spring Into Greek Season


As spring has slowly crept up on us so has Greek Season. The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) Divine 9 Greeks will be randomly having probates where they introduce the new members of their organization.

The NPHC was founded in 1930. They include 9 organizations: Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and Iota Phi Theta.

Each organization announces the time and the place for their probate on their social media outlet about a day before the actual probate.

The probate is a time where new inductees reveal themselves to their family and friends. Their faces are covered until the actual revealing of themselves.

Before they reveal themselves they recite the founders of their organization and also pay dues to the other organizations and also the members of their organization that came before them.

So make sure to follow your local NPHC organizations to find out the next Probate and check it out!
