General Information

Appalachian State University is composed of men's and women's social fraternities. Each of these organizations is governed by a student-run governing council that has specific guidelines and requirements related to the recruitment of new members. Additionally, each member organization has additional requirements of students seeking membership in their specific organizations. Please see the Governing Council pages along the left side of this page for more specific details.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

Each NPHC chapter has its own process for prospective members to follow. Our NPHC organizations appreciate discretion prior to and during the intake process, as deciding to join an organization is a very personal one. The organizations host events throughout the year to be able to get to know students. If a student has interest in possibly joining an organization, it is best to first do research on the specific organization. After you find an organization that fits well with your values, reach out directly to a member of that organization and set up a time to meet one on one to talk about the possibility of joining. All NPHC organizations have minimum standards for GPA. If the members feel that it would be a good fit, there is an application process through the inter/national office.  

Interfraternity Council

The IFC coordinates recruitment at the beginning of both fall and spring semester for 13 men's fraternities. Visit IFC's page to get more information about each chapter and see recruitment events schedules. If you are interested in participating in recruitment and would like your information distributed to organizations, complete the recruitment registration form.

Panhellenic Council

The PHC holds a formal recruitment process at the beginning of the fall semester for 10 sororities. Formal recruitment is a structured process where potential new members and current sorority members get to know each other throughout rounds of recruitment events. Formal recruitment ends with Bid Day, where potential new members may receive an invitation to join one sorority (a bid). Online registration for formal recruitment is available beginning in the summer and ends early in the fall semester. 

Continous recruitment events take place in the fall and spring semesters. Continuous recruitment is a way for potential new members and sorority members to get to know each other in an informal environment. Not all sororities participate in continuous recruitment. The PHC does not require registration for continuous recruitment.
