FALL 2020 RUSH
Us as an Interfraternity Council are still planning to host fall rush as usual but this will be entirely dependent on Michigan State University's plan to open in the fall. And whether it will be safe enough for us to continue safely.
"As this situation is very fluid, these plans are not concrete, and may change depending on the status of classes in the Fall. I will keep you in the loop as plans may change and share any further information I get." VP of Recruitment Sam McTaggart
2020 FALL RUSH UPDATES
No in person classes, everything is online in the Fall
Cancel Fall Recruitment and purchase ChapterBuilder which we will advertise for PNMs to 'Register' for IFC Recruitment and put names into a central location. Each fraternity will be provided access to this as well where they can view PNMs and prepare for a longer Spring Recruitment.
With no Fall 2020 Recruitment, we would extend the Spring 2021 Recruitment Period (around 8-12 days instead of the usual 4 day period) to make up for the lost time in the Fall.
The semester starts online then goes back to in person classes
We would push Fall Recruitment back in the semester in a way that aligns with the return of in-person classes.
Ex: If Fall classes are set to start October 5th, we would hold IFC Fall Recruitment October 19th - October 23rd.
Hold IFC Fall Recruitment as planned from Monday, September 14th - Friday, September 18th
Classes are in person from the start

STEPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL RUSH WEEK
Spring 2020 Men’s Rush Week is Tuesday, January 21st through Friday, January 24th.
Rush events will be held at individual fraternity houses from Tuesday, January 21st through Friday, January 24th. These events follow an open door format.
Try to map out 3-5 fraternities per day that you can check out. Keep all your options open.
DO NOT RUSH ONLY ONE HOUSE! Check out houses 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.
At each fraternity house, make sure you give all your information to the individuals at the registration table. This ensures that you can be contacted by members of the organization(s) about your future membership.
While you are at a fraternity house, try to talk to as many people as you can. This will help you know if that fraternity is the right place for you. Under No Circumstances are you allowed to drink alcohol or do drugs during recruitment. Do not show up to recruitment events under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This will result in your removal from recruitment events. If you are offered any alcohol or drugs or hear about these substances being present at a fraternity house, please contact the Interfraternity Council Vice President for Recruitment, Sam McTaggart at email@example.com.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Sam McTaggart, V.P. of Recruitment for Interfraternity Council.
