Membership selection is at the sole discretion of each fraternity and its members. It is not influenced or controlled by the Pittsburg State IFC or the Pittsburg State Greek Life Office.
2. Contact chapters that interest you
Contact the recruitment chairmen of the chapters that you might be interested in directly. Each of our fraternity chapters has one or two people elected to serve as recruitment chairperson(s). These men will review your information from the database and begin calling, writing, or e-mailing you. They will send you information about their fraternity, why you should join, what kinds of philanthropies they are involved in, what kinds of social activities they are planning for next year, etc. You can also contact them to begin the process. Contact information can be found on each individual fraternity’s page.
3. Attend ongoing recruitment events
Once you have decided which fraternities that you're interested in, you may begin to participate in their ongoing recruitment events. These events, scheduled throughout the year, are small social gatherings designed to introduce prospective new members to the current fraternity members. The chapters may have a barbecue, go bowling, play paintball, golf, watch movies, etc. The recruitment chairpersons will send invitations to you as to when the events are scheduled.
4. Join a fraternity.
Most chapters will offer you a bid (an invitation to join their fraternity), the recruitment process is complete when you have signed a bid card. The disclaimer on the back of the bid card allows Greek Life Office to release your grades to your fraternity for the purpose of monitoring your progress. For example, the chapters will need to know whether you are meeting the minimum grade requirements to remain in the chapter each semester. Some chapters also use grades to determine room assignments or scholarships.
