Step 1: Let us know you're interested!
Each fraternity and sorority manages their own recruitment processes, including unqiue events and programs designed to invite students to learn more about the organization's values, philanthropic works and campus experience. To connect with a chapter, or learn more about upcoming recruitment events, fill out our interest form.
Step 2: Meet Our Chapters
Our organizations want to ensure students who join are active in their community, academically-driven and living their values. We encourage students to attend the events, fundraisers and programs hosted by fraternities and sororities to begin building connections outside of recruitment events. Joining a fraternity or sorority can be as simple as making friends!

What is recruitment?
Recruitment, rush, informational, expresso... Our organizations refer to the joining process by many names, but ultimately these events are the pre-planned, structured processes as the entry-point to membership consideration. Interested students should attend these events to receive more detailed information about the membership experience and to display a direct interest in joining a particular organization. Recruitment events are required by some chapters for membership eligibility!
Step 3: Do Your Research
You are committing to a lifetime of membership, a decision not to take lightly! We recommend familiarizing yourself with the following organziational information as you consider membership in a particular organization:
1. What are the organization's values?
2. What is the cost of membership annually?
3. What philanthropic causes does the organization support?
4. How does the organization build brotherhood/sisterhood?
