Greek Recruitment

 

Interfraternity Council

IFC can recruit members at any point during the year, but focuses on hosting recruitment events and offering invitations to membership in the first few weeks of each semester. In the fall, recruitment starts Sunday before classes. Spring semester recruitment usually takes place during week two or three of the spring semester.

 

Panhellenic Association

Panhellenic has a formal recruitment process held in conjunction with MASTER Plan the week before classes begin in the fall semester. No need to worry if MASTER Plan and Recruitment will interrupt one another. We work closely with other offices on campus to make sure there are not conflicts! You can do MASTER Plan and participate in recruitment. Chapters that may have open space in the spring semester may engage in an informal recruitment process.

  • Email CASEY BIRGE, Panhellenic Recruitment Director at casey.birge719@topper.wku.edu to learn more!
  • Recommendation Letters: Recommendation letters, while encouraged are not required to participate in sorority recruitment. Please review the individual chapter addresses (available in the Greek Recruitment Booklet above). Affiliated women interested in submitting a Recommendation letter should contact the national headquarters of their individual organization to access the recommendation form used. Questions? Contact Andrew Rash at andrew.rash@wku.edu.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

NPHC does not have a formal recruitment process. You can reach out to each organization to identify what informational opportunities are available. We also suggest signing up for Greek 101, which is a requirement of students interested in joining an NPHC organization. This is a workshop where you will learn more about NPHC history, the history of the African American community in higher education, and have the opportunity to ask NPHC students questions during a special panel.
