The new collaborative app GoGreekNow, exclusively for members of fraternities and sororities across the country, gives members of “Greek life” a chance to bust misconceptions about how they live.

While many fraternities and sororities are arbitrarily linked to behaviors similar to those depicted in iconic movies such as Animal House or The House Bunny, it is imperative for members of Fraternities to utilize this tool to show to the world, and other members of the Greek community, the true intentions of being Greek: the interpersonal relationships established among individual Greek members and the community they represent.

The app provides members of Greek life with the ability to receive daily news updates, share photos and videos of their Greek experience, read editorials from Greek campus writers and find chapters and active members around the country.

In an effort to increase awareness of the way various chapters operate and the events they entail, the app distributes this information parsimoniously through the App Store all for free, even if you are not an active member in Greek life.

Rather than trying to explain details through verbal communication, active members can simply show any individual the app so they can get an endless amount of information that could make them want to download the app or become a Greek themselves.
