Chapters in the Interfraternity Council conduct an informal recruitment process throughout the year.

These events may sometimes include Smokers (formal information sessions), where brothers and alumni discuss the unique aspects of their fraternity and share personal experiences with prospective members. Please take time to read the Expectations of Fraternity Members (provided by the North American Interfraternity Council).
