AGR officially became one of four approved fraternities for Sophomore housing on Wednesday March 9, 2016 by the university. Ohio State’s Second-year Transformational Experience Program (STEP) was developed as a continuation of the university’s effort to redefine the student experience.
Current first-year students will automatically be signed up for STEP when they participate in housing re-selection for the 2016/2017 academic year. Current first-year students who choose to live in an approved sorority or fraternity chapter facility will also be automatically signed up for STEP when they participate in housing re-selection for the 2016/2017 academic year.
The only requirements for expressing interest in STEP are committing to live in the residence halls, an approved Greek living facility, or with a parent or close relative for their entire second year (fall and spring semesters) and being in good standing with the university (requires a GPA of 2.0 or higher).
Second-year students who live in one of the Greek living facilities that meet the qualifications of the Greek Housing Standard and the Greek Housing Implementation Report and are approved by Ohio State are eligible to participate in STEP.
