Fraternity Formal Recruitment
Formal recruitment, also known as "rush," is a week of activities where potential
new members (PNMs) have a chance to learn about each organization’s history, philanthropy,
standards and identity on campus while also having the opportunity to talk with current
chapter members. Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process, where both the
PNM and fraternity hope to find the best fit for each man.
What do I need to do to register?
Formal recruitment dates will be Sept. 1-4, 2015.
Registration is now open.
What are the requirements for joining a fraternity?
In order to be eligible to join a fraternity, you must meet the following requirements:
- Have a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) in either high school or college.
- Be a full-time student (12 hours).
- Shall not be, or ever have been, an initiated member of an NIC fraternity.
- Complete online registration by set deadline.
It is encouraged that potential new members attend all recruitment events in order for both the Greek chapters and the potential new member to get the full experience out of Formal Recruitment and are able to make educated, informed decisions.
If you did not participate in formal recruitment or did not decide to join at that
time, you have the opportunity to participate in informal recruitment later in the
fall and/or in the spring semester. Each chapter plans these activities separately,
so please contact the Interfraternity Council for additional information.
