How to join

Joining a fraternity or sorority is an exciting and energy-filled process. It all starts through what is referred to as ‘fraternity and sorority recruitment’. Recruitment is an exciting time of year when students may affiliate with one of the University’s fraternities or sororities. Some of these organizations participate in a structured recruitment process during the first few weeks of the semester, while others offer recruitment throughout the year.

Recruitment dates

Recruitment dates will range from January 28, 2024, to February 16, 2024, and will vary depending on which organization you choose to join.  Explore the icons below to learn more about each council’s recruitment process.
