IFC Fall 2021 Recruitment (updated 5/21/2021)


IFC Recruitment

Interfraternity Council recruitment offers an opportunity to meet chapter members and peers, while learning what each fraternity has to offer. Throughout the process, Recruitment Counselors (Rho Chi's) will answer all questions that may arise while participating in recruitment. Participating in the recruitment process does not require a person to join a chapter, but enables them to explore and learn about the campus and Greek community. This is a great way to meet new people and find out about different ways to get involved on campus. This process is intended to be a positive, fun, and enriching experience for everyone who participates.
