What guidance is OSU giving to fraternities and sororities regarding COVID-19?
Planning for fall recruitment and membership activities is underway, and OSU Greeks will be welcoming new students in fall 2020 and providing membership opportunities. Student leaders from the governing councils are currently outlining plans based closely on OSU’s guidance for fall term 2020, and all processes will have plans in hybrid models (both in- person and remote options) as well as fully virtual. More details will be announced as the fall term nears and be posted on the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life website once they are finalized. Information will also be sent to anyone who is registered for a process.
Each housed fraternity and sorority is privately owned and operated and CFSL is encouraging their compliance with Benton County Health Department guidance, Corvallis Fire Department guidelines, the governor’s executive orders and other requirements that may apply to them.
The fraternity/sorority community collectively is prioritizing adherence to best public health practices in fall planning. Fraternities/sororities are recognized student organizations and will be required to comply with applicable expectations provided by OSU for student organizations. Accountability for following OSU policies will align with the process outlined in OSU’s Code of Student Conduct.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have symptoms, stay home; avoid close contact with others; and contact your health care provider, Student Health Services, or an emergency medical care provider.
