Any male high school graduate that is attending Washington State University either currently or is going to attend Washington State University within one academic term of acceptance can join through formal or informal recruitment.

Summer Recruitment

Registration for Summer and Fall recruitment will begin June 1st 2019. Summer recruitment is an informal process that takes place in June and July. With the exception of the IFC-sponsored summer events listed online, individual chapters organize their own recruitment activities throughout the summer. To get involved in those activities, you will be added to an e-mail list after registering for summer recruitment using the link below. All individuals interested in summer recruitment MUST register to participate in recruitment events and must be offered and accept a bid through CampusDirector by August 1st at 5pm. If you are intending to live in a university approved chapter facility in Fall 2019, you must accept a bid and cancel your housing contract by July 12th 2019.

Fall Formal Recruitment

Formal recruitment week will be taking place Saturday, August 10th to Sunday, August 18th, prior to the start of school. You MUST register before August 1st at 5pm to participate in Fall Formal Recruitment (no exceptions). This week of formal recruitment will include tours of Greek row, tours of chapter houses, general and specific informational delegation of the entire Greek community as well as individual chapter houses, and meet and greets of entire chapter memberships. The process is structured to help give potential new members the best experience to formulate their own opinions and relationships throughout the Greek community and join the house they best deem fit.

This week will be concluded with Bid day and the Bid Day Run on the Sunday, prior to the first day of school, where potential new members will be able to select their top option of chapters they received bids from, and become associate members of those chapters. Formal Recruitment must be registered for by the deadline and potential new members must attend all events through formal recruitment week in order to receive and sign bids on bid day.

You only need to register one time to participate recruitment during the same academic year (Summer-Spring semesters).
