 How to Join an IFC Fraternity:

At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, the Interfraternity Council holds its Formal Recruitment process. IFC Recruitment gives potential members the opportunity to meet members of each fraternity. The IFC Recruitment process is one of mutual selection: the fraternities decide which recruits they wish to invite into membership, and the recruits choose which fraternity they wish to join. Each organization will host individual recruitment events in various locations on campus and throughout the Columbus area. Eating lunch together, playing sports, completing service projects, meeting alumni, viewing slide shows or video presentations, and just asking questions of fraternity members in a casual atmosphere are a few examples of things potential members might do during IFC Recruitment. The formal process lasts one week and allows students the opportunity to explore Fraternity & Sorority Life without joining any particular fraternity. At the conclusion of recruitment, each fraternity extends "bids," or offers of membership, to men that it wishes to be part of its organization.
