How to Join
  • Learn How to Join Capital's Fraternity and Sorority Life Community

    Capital University holds its Interfraternity Council (IFC) and Panhellenic/Intersorority Council Formal Recruitment (NPC) in the fall semester and informal recruitment in the spring. The National Pan-Hellenic Council or city-wide chapters (NPHC) participate in intake processes. Below is a breakdown of each process:


    Informal Recruitment Process

    During the spring, our NPC and IFC fraternities and sororities hold informal recruitment. Chapters will host events to engage potential new members and introduce them to Fraternity and Sorority Life and specific chapters within the community. Different than formal recruitment, this process does not involve structured rounds or schedules, but offers a more laid back atmosphere in which members and interested students can interact and get to know one another. Chapters may extend bids to individuals at any time during this process. Individuals have up to one calendar year to accept or deny a bid.

    Panhellenic/Intersorority Council Informal Recruitment
      
    The NPC informal recruitment is a casual recruitment period where individual sororities may host events for potential new members to attend. Events should be promoted throughout campus including the Capital University Fraternity and Sorority Life Facebook and Twitter pages. Bid Day will be on January 31. If you have any questions, email CUSororityLife@gmail.com or call 614-236-6901. 

    Interfraternity Council Formal Recruitment  
    Fraternities on campus will hold events at specific locations. The fraternities on campus will use time during these events to get to know potential new members, share what they have done as a chapter, and showcase the meaning of brotherhood and how joining a Greek lettered organization can make you a better person. If you have questions, contact fraternitylife@capital.edu or call 614-236-6901.

    National Pan-Hellenic Council/City-Wide Chapters  
    Our National Pan-Hellenic Council or City-Wide chapters conduct membership intake. These chapters will have open forums and events for students interested in membership. Once you have decided which organization to join, notify the fraternity or sorority of your decision and they will let you know how to join. Each organization has its own processes. If you have questions, contact sce@capital.edu or call 614-236-6901.
