Formal Recruitment

 

FORMAL RECRUITMENT: Formal recruitment is an invitation-only process, with men visiting only the chapters that interest them and have been invited to over the course of five rounds (days). Specifically, fraternities will organize various evening events/activities to allow PNMs a space to get to know the current members and will educate all interested PNMs on their specific membership requirements. Chapters, via the IFC’s registration software Campus Director (CD), offer electronic invitations to PNMs to return to subsequent rounds should a mutual interest/connection be made. After the 5th (and final) round, fraternities have the opportunity to extend bids (invitations to join the fraternity). Bids will be extended electronically via CD at 12:01am the Saturday following the last round.

To facilitate the formal recruitment process, chapters are separated into two recruitment groups (Group A & Group B). Each recruitment group is designated 5 specific calendar days of recruitment over a 2 week period. Chapters typically will choose to host recruitment events during three of the 5 days with the last 2 days typically being interview style nights. Chapters are separated into these two recruitment groups to allow for an even distribution of events during 
recruitment and to allow interested men the opportunity to attend as many semi-open events as possible. REGISTER HERE
 
The IFC understand this process might be a little confusing, so as part of the formal process, each PNM will be paired with a Recruitment Guide (Rho Gamma). Recruitment Guides provide support and 
personal guidance to potential new members going through the formal recruitment process, and they strive to promote the entire Interfraternity Council (IFC) community. Each potential new member will be assigned a Rho Gamma to assist them in the formal recruitment process.
