Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life


IFC fraternities do hot have a specific, defined recruitment period, though most recruiting to join occurs June to August.

Panhellenic sororities hold a Formal Recruitment each year in September followed by Continuous Open Bidding (COB), except school breaks, through the end of the school year.

New members move right into the chapter house, including Freshman.  For Panhellenic sororities this occurs on Bid Day.  For IFC fraternities this occurs in September, but the timing varies by organization.  For students who join during the school year, moving in may be based on a space available basis.

Please refer to the IFC and Panhellenic websites for information pertaining to possible releases from residence hall contracts.
