STEPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL RUSH WEEK

Spring 2021 Recruitment is Sunday, January 24th to Thursday, January 28th.


All events will occur virtually via Zoom.


Register for recruitment with this link

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

DO I NEED TO REGISTER FOR RUSH/RECRUITMENT?

Yes, all PNMs must register for rush, or else they cannot participate in the events. You can register for IFC rush at the link here: Registration Form

WHERE DO I GET THE ZOOM LINKS FOR CHAPTERS?

Once you register for recruitment, you will be sent the Zoom links for all of the chapters participating in recruitment. All links will be sent out on a document prior to rush via email. None of the links have passwords with them, so you simply click the link to chat with brothers during rush week.

WHAT DO THE DIFFERENT DAYS OF RUSH MEAN?

Open House - PNMs can visit any fraternity they want and however many they want within the given time frame. After the 4th Open House (Wednesday night), PNMs will receive an invitation from none or all of the fraternities they visited prior. 

Invite Only - PNMs can only accept 1 invitation. PNMs are only allowed to go to the fraternity where they receive an invitation from a member of the chapter. Regardless of how many invitations they receive, the PNM will go to the fraternity that is their top choice

HOW MANY FRATERNITIES SHOULD I VISIT?

We suggest that you visit 3-5 fraternities of varying sizes. The schedule is set up toward where you have time to visit enough on the first day of rush (Sunday 1/24). It's also a good idea to reduce your options after every day in order to ensure you end up at the right place. For instance, you can start by visiting 5 chapters on day 1 of rush, 4 chapters on day 2 of rush, 3 chapters on day 3 of rush, and so on and so forth.

WHAT IS CONTINUOUS ONGOING BIDDING?

Also known as COBing or open recruitment and is when a fraternity chapter continues to recruit after formal recruitment week. Every chapter at Michigan State can participate in COBing, but PNMs can only receive a bid if they did not participate in the formal recruitment process. Open recruitment begins after recruitment week ends (January 29th).

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.
