Register now button blueWhat is IFC Men's Recruitment?

Recruitment is your chance to take a look at the recognized IFC fraternities at ASU. Recruitment allows you to learn about what these fraternities do and what they're all about. If you're even slightly interested or curious, take a moment and check it out to see for yourself. Just because you go to a Recruitment event doesn't mean that you have to join a fraternity.

Recruitment Guidelines

  • All potential new members must register with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to participate in fraternity recruitment
  • Beginning with the first day of classes through Bid Day, potential new members will not be allowed at any fraternity social events except sanctioned recruitment events.
  • Potential new members may attend any fundraisers as long as they pay admittance.
  • Potential new members cannot accept a bid until Balloting/Bid Day.
  • Fraternities may continue recruitment after Bid Day.
  • All fraternity recruitment events will be non-alcoholic.
  • Freshman (first year students) must have a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 to participate in fraternity recruitment.
  • Men must have completed 12 semester hours at Appalachian and must have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 2.7 to participate in Recruitment.

Things to Know for Recruitment

  • Be yourself. There is nothing more important than being yourself during recruitment. You will end up with the right fraternity for you, and you will be happy with your decision.
  • Check out each fraternity. It is important to make an effort to look at each fraternity individually. All potential new members should attend IFC Recruitment Kickoff so you can get an opportunity to meet members from every fraternity on campus.
  • Take your time. Joining a fraternity is a momentous decision. Be sure that the fraternity that has given you a bid is one you will be happy with.
  • Dry Recruitment. Alcohol is not allowed at any recruitment activity. Inter/National, university, and IFC policies stipulate that all activities associated with fraternity recruitment remain alcohol free. Violation of this rule is a serious infraction and the guilty chapter is subject to disciplinary action.
  • Ask questions. Make sure all your questions are sufficiently answered. By asking questions you will be able to find out more about each fraternity and its members.
  • Dress casual for the Kickoff. Dress for most recruitment events will be casual. Some chapters make it more formal towards the end of recruitment. Just be sure to ask if you've not been told
