Fraternity Recruitment

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/activities/greek/prospective/fraternities.html

Fall 2015 Formal Recruitment for fraternities has been completed.  Fraternities are now informally recruiting new members.  If you are interested in being put in contact with fraternity recruitment chairmen, please fill out the form at the "Contact Us" link to the left.

For the third year, the fraternity community will be hosting formal recruitment in Fall 2016. Formal recruitment allows potential new members to meet each of the fraternities. The process is designed to ensure the best possible fit into a lifetime of brotherhood.

Pre-registration is required and will be available in May 2016. There is a $20 registration fee to participate in the fraternity formal recruitment process if registration and payment are received by August 1.  After that, the fee increases to $25.  

Formal Recruitment will begin Thursday, August 25 and will run through Sunday, August 28.  The Fraternity Meet-and-Greet will likely be in the Maverick Bullpen from 8-10 p.m. on Thursday, August 26.  It is optional, but highly encouraged.  All fraternities will be present, and the event will be a great time!  Men will have the opportunity to meet all chapters via open-house-style visits on Friday and Saturday, August 26-27.  On Sunday, August 28, men will only return to their top two choices, narrowing down their options in order to find the best fit.  August 26-28 should not be considered optional by participants.

"Bids," or invitations to join particular fraternities, will be distributed on Sunday, August 28.  While it is encouraged that men accept or decline their bids for membership on Sunday August 28, the bids for membership must be accepted or declined by Wednesday August 31.
