Informal Recruitment

Men may join a fraternity at any time after they have graduated from high school and committed to attending the university.  Many of our fraternities will be hosting events and recruiting new members throughout the course of the summer, leading up to the beginning of the Fall semester.  New first-year or transfer students should not be surprised if they receive a phone call or email with invitations to meet with fraternities or to attend events.

Chapters will also host informal recruitment events once the semester starts.  If a student, including a new, incoming student, finds a good fit, it is perfectly ok for him to join a fraternity.

A majority of men who join fraternities do so through Informal Recruitment.

Fraternity Meet & Greet

  • Join us on Thursday, September 5, from 8-10 p.m. in the Maverick Bullpen.  Meet members of all of our fraternities, and get your questions answered!

The fraternity community will host an informal, optional Fraternity Meet & Greet.  This event is free, and no commitment to structured recruitment is required.  It's designed to a come-and-go-as-you-please feel, so if you have class until 9 or have somewhere to be at 9, no problem!  Men who attend will have an opportunity to enjoy refreshments while mingling with members from our fraternities and getting their questions answered.  If they haven't decided to participate already, it's often times this event that helps guys decide to go through with the recruitment process, whether structured or informal.

Open Houses

On Tuesday, September 10, all fraternities will host social gatherings at their chosen locations from 6-8 p.m.  Potential members are invited to attend any or all of these events and to come and go as they please.  Locations will be posted by September 3.
