FRATERNITY RECRUITMENTExplore Fraternity

Structured recruitment is the process through which fraternity members introduce themselves to potential members. Throughout the first few weeks of classes during the fall semester, you are invited to visit all five chapters and learn what each has to offer. Joining a fraternity is a big decision and attending as many recruitment events as your schedule allows is strongly encouraged to help you make the decision that is best for you. 


How to Register for Structured Recruitment

Registration is a quick and easy process.  Just click HERE and fill in the answers to the questions. Once you have registered, your information will be sent to the recruitment officers from the five fraternities to let them know you are interested in receiving more information. Fraternity recruitment is free and you even get a chance to win a $200 Book Scholarship (for spring 2014) just for registering.  NOTE: Registration is not required to participate or receive a bid.

Registration Deadline: Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 11:59 pm


How Structured Recruitment Works

Structured recruitment is just that; a structured process to assist chapters in finding new members and interested students to find a chapter. Other than a few events coordinated by the IFC, the process is still relatively open.  By that we mean that there are no required events to attend and potential members are able to attend those events that fit best with their schedule and interests.  IFC will host a Fraternity Tours Night, chapters will host various recruitment events, and the structured process will end with chapter hosted Preference Events and a Bid Day. Beyond the Structured Bid Day, potential members are still able to join chapters as their interests develop. ALL EVENTS ARE ALCOHOL-FREE. For more information, contact the Interfraternity Council.


How to Learn About Recruitment

All Information Sessions have been completed at this time.  If you would like more information, please contact IFC at ifc@iwu.edu.  


Fraternity Tour Night

IFC held our Fraternity Tour Night on Tuesday, September 3, 2013.  If you were unable to attend, please contact IFC at ifc@iwu.edu if you would like information on how to tour a chapter house.

Bid Day

Structured recruitment will culminate on Tuesday, September 17 with Bid Day. Beginning at noon, individuals who have participated in recruitment can stop by the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life (Suite 101) in the Hansen Student Center to pick up and accept their bid. Bids will be available for pick up until 10:00 pm and will resume at 8:00 am the next day. Those receiving bids will have three options. They may accept one of their bids (therefore declining the other bids and ending their recruitment process). They may indicate they would like to place a bid on hold (giving them time to speak with parents, examine options, etc.). This means a potential member is still interested but is not ready to make a decision at that time. Or they may decline (indicating they are 100% certain they are not interested in accepting in the future).
