Recruitment can be a fun time for one and all. To ensure that it’s a truly amazing and memorable time, go into Recruitment Week with an open mind. If you have any questions stop by the recruitment table at the Kehr Union Building or at the Greek Life Office in KUB 349.

What will I get out of Greek Life?

Joining a fraternity or sorority can help make the transition to college easier. Developing lifelong friendships with the members in their chapter helps make the campus smaller and more manageable. For many members, these chapters become their home away from home. In addition to the brotherhood/sisterhood, every chapter promotes the values of enhancing leadership, service scholarship, philanthropy/service and financial responsibilities.

To sign-up for all recruitment events please fill out this form and bring it to the Office of Greek Affairs, 348 Kehr Union Building. Women have an additional step for spring recruitment, once you are approved you will receive an email to complete your application on CampusDirector.
