Fraternity Recruitment

Page address:

For the second year, the fraternity community will be hosting formal recruitment. 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 is available here. 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 27 and will run through Sunday, August 30.  The Fraternity Meet-and-Greet is in the Maverick Bullpen from 8-10 p.m. on Thursday, August 27.  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 28-29.  On Sunday, August 30, men will only return to their top two choices, narrowing down their options in order to find the best fit.  August 28-30 should not be considered optional by participants.

"Bids," or invitations to join particular fraternities, will be distributed on Sunday, August 30.  While it is encouraged that men accept or decline their bids for membership on Sunday August 30, the bids for membership must be accepted or declined by Wednesday September 2.
