Recruitment events occur each day on the times listed above. Try to virtually visit as many fraternities as possible!

DO NOT VISIT ONLY ONE HOUSE! Check out fraternities of all membership sizes! You may find that your original opinions on fraternities could change.

Be yourself! Do not try to fit the mold of what you think a stereotypical ‘fraternity’ guy is.

Potential New Members (PNMs) are those who are interested in joining a fraternity. During the week of Recruitment, PNMs are not allowed in any IFC Fraternity houses. Failure to follow this rule will result in your removal from the Recruitment process.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Matthew Mancini, V.P. of Recruitment for the Interfraternity Council.

FAQ

Commonly asked questions about the recruitment process

WHAT IS ROLLING RUSH?

Also known as Continuous Ongoing Bidding (COBing), Open Recruitment, and Year-round Recruitment. The process is much less formal than the formal recruitment process. Essentially, you will give us your information by filling out the Interest Form and we will link you with a fraternity chapter still looking to add members. There are no IFC sponsored events, so the participating chapters will reach out to you individually. From there, you will have conversations with their members and, if they think you are a good fit, you may receive a bid at any point in the future. 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN ROLLING RUSH?

Anybody who is not currently a brother of an IFC fraternity. Even if you already participated in formal recruitment or missed it, then you are still eligible.

WHAT IS SUICIDE RUSHING?

It is when a PNM only visits one fraternity which is something that we HIGHLY advise against. You not only limit your options to a place you may not fit in at, but you could also risk not being able to join a fraternity at all.

WHAT IS A BID?

A bid is an invitation to join a fraternity. IFC member chapters are not allowed to extend bids to PNMs before or during formal recruitment week.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T GET A BID?

Considering you only might've seen a fraction of all the fraternities at Michigan State, we suggest that you go through recruitment again in the Fall. You are bound to find the right place if you spread out your options and continue looking the next time around.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR DURING RUSH WEEK?

During the Open House nights, you should wear “pretty” attire (i.e. sweater, polo, button-down, khakis, jeans, etc.). Basically, you would want to wear something nice enough or as if you were going out with friends. For Invite Only, you typically wear something more formal (i.e. dress shirt, slacks, blazer, tie, etc.), but it’s up to the individual fraternity as to what you should wear.

   

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL AND SOCIAL FRATERNITIES?

A professional fraternity normally pertains to a certain major (i.e. business, political science, pre-med, etc.) and engages in mainly career building and networking events. A social fraternity allows people of all majors, but still frequently engages in these career building and networking events. Social fraternities also value brotherhood and camaraderie to a higher degree.

DO I NEED TO ATTEND ALL RUSH EVENTS OR GO FOR THE WHOLE TIME?

Although it is not mandatory that you stay for the whole time during Open House Nights, it is highly suggested. You want to have as much time to meet brothers and visit multiple houses. In the end, it is entirely up to you though. That being said, you are strongly encouraged to visit your top house on Invite Only Night.

DO WE HAVE TO VISIT ALL OF THE HOUSES?

No, but we do suggest that you visit between 3-5 houses to spread out your options.
