Recruitment

Fraternity and sorority recruitment varies depending on the organization and its council. The information below is general, but should you give you a good idea about the recruitment process for each group.

Fraternity Recruitment

Housed fraternities: Interfraternity Council (IFC)

Non-housed fraternities: Unified Greek Council (UGC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (Divine Nine)

  • Recruitment is year-long, but the new member intake process may happen starting in the first weeks of Fall term, first weeks of Winter term, or the first week of Spring term. This new membership timeline depends on the organization as well as how many students are interested in joining. Typically, UGC and Independent Greeks have several students interested in joining go through a pledging process for a varying amount of weeks. Once the pledging process is over, students become members - known as "crossing" into the fraternity.
  • If interested, please view a list of UGC chapters or a list of NPHC Chapters and proceed by emailing their recruitment/rush chairs from their local website link. If you're interested in any of the additional Greek organizations, please proceed by emailing the contact name listed on their website.
  • Contact the national headquarters for NPHC Greeks first, and then if you're not successful, please connect with Franklin Soares at Oregon State University.

Sorority Recruitment

Housed sororities: Panhellenic Council (PHC)

  • Fall Formal Recruitment works in a week long process in which you will get a chance to meet members of all National Panhellenic chapters that OSU offers, take tours of some of thehomes, and choose the chapter which you think best fits you and which girls you fit in best with! It is a really exciting and fun process and will give you a good look at sorority life.
