Fall 2012 IFC Fraternity Recruitment
What is Recruitment or "Rush"?
Recruitment, or "rush," is the term used for the period of requirment of new members for fraternities. Formal Fall recruitment consists of three structured days that include an orientation meeting and mandatory visitation of each chapter house to meet members and learn more about fraternity life. After visiting each chapter, potential new members are free to visit any of the chapters for the next two days. For information about fraternity life and how to join a fraternity, check out the 2012 Fraternity Way, IFC's annual recruitment publication. You also will be able to join us during orientation to learn more about IFC fraternities and how to join!
Why Join a Fraternity?
By joining the Greek community, a wealth of opportunities will be awaiting you. You will have the chance to develop new friendships, take part in meaningful campus activities and community service events, and develop your leadership skills. Fraternities were founded on the principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and development of lifelong friendships. All fraternities have something unique to offer, and membership in a fraternity will add a new dimension of leadership, academic involvement, and fun to your college career.
