Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifelong commitment to fraternal values and leadership. IFC, Panhellenic, CMC, and NPHC fraternities and sororities select their members through a recruitment process referred to as “recruitment” or “intake”.
Collaborative Multicultural Council (CMC) Recruitment Process
The recruitment process for CMC chapters happens throughout the year. The process for each chapter is different, however each group hosts information sessions that any interested students can attend. Other activities held over the course of the quarter are to help educate and inform prospective members on the unique programs and opportunities that exist within those groups.
Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment Process
The recruitment process for Panhellenic sororities is formal and structured. Registration is required prior to the week of formal recruitment. Participants visit each chapter on the first day of formal recruitment and fewer chapters each day following until Bid Day. Recruitment is a mutual selection process between the potential new member and the chapter.
