How to Join a Fraternity or Sorority

Interested in joining a fraternity or sorority? There will be many events in the beginning of each semester to meet our Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Sorority & Fraternity Council, and Panhellenic Council. While all three councils have their own recruitment process, the office of Fraternity & Sorority Life requires students to have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 to join any fraternity or sorority chapter. We encourage everyone to visit our council and chapter social media pages for events, updates and announcements!

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) hosts recruitment the fourth week of each fall and spring semester. Leading up to recruitment, all IFC chapters will be tabling in the plaza and promoting events around campus. The first day of recruitment will be an information night where everyone is invited to learn about our IFC chapters and encouraged to visit them all throughout the week. From there, students can choose the events they would like to attend. Recruitment concludes with Bid Day where invitations or bids are distributed from each chapter.

Multicultural Sorority & Fraternity Council

The Multicultural Sorority & Fraternity Council (MSFC) hosts recruitment or intake throughout the fall and spring semester. MSFC fraternities and sororities represented on campus will present information about their individual chapters for prospective members by tabling at the beginning of the semester and the MSFC council will host the “MSFC Grand Tour” where all the chapters in the MSFC council come together for one big informational night. Not all MSFC chapters take in new members at the same time and each chapter has a unique process tailored to their individual organizations, however, each chapter is highlighted at the beginning of the school year.

Panhellenic Council

The Panhellenic Council hosts a formal recruitment process during the third week of the fall semester. Formal Recruitment is a three-day process in which students explore all chapters, with the exception of our associate chapters, Kappa Delta Zeta and Lambda Kappa Pi. Registration for formal recruitment will open in August and close the day before recruitment. Panhellenic kicks off formal recruitment with “All About Recruitment” the Thursday of formal recruitment weekend. Formal recruitment begins on Friday and goes through Sunday, ending with Bid Day Sunday evening. Our 2 local Panhellenic affiliated sororities do participate in recruitment; however, they do not participate in the formal Panhellenic recruitment weekend. They too will hold tabling and recruitment events after formal Panhellenic recruitment has concluded.
