Interfraternity Council Recruitment: (Fall) August 21 - September 2 or (Spring) January 13 – January 31
The recruitment process varies by fraternity, but historically involves a combination of brotherhood outings, one-on-one interactions, information sessions, and "smokers". Interested men should contact the individual chapter for specific information on their recruitment. At the conclusion of the two weeks of recruitment, each fraternity extends "bids" or offers of membership, to men that it wishes to be a part of its organization. Watch out for more details to be announced through the Interfraternity Council on their Facebook page.
All organizations in both these councils have an equally unique collection of recruitment processes. While some organizations have formal recruitment, other organizations create interest through interest meetings, informational sessions or word-of-mouth. More specific information such as frequency, nature and length of Rush/Intake period may be different for each individual organization.
If you have any questions about joining any of our organizations, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (305) 284.5353.
