How to Join a Fraternity or Sorority
Fraternities and sororities select their members through a recruitment process. This process begins with New Student Days. During this time, groups are allowed to hold various mixers and informational sessions so that new students can learn about which group would be the best fit.
On the week prior to Rush Week, all students interested in rushing a fraternity or sorority will go through Bid Night. On this night, each group is allowed to have one final social to entice membership before bid cards must be turned in and membership solidified. Rush Week follows Bid Night with formal invitations distributed to each member who was chosen by each fraternity and sorority. Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota hold a different rush based on stipulations from their national chapters.
Contact Kara Siedhoff, Coordinator of Student Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402.461.7487 for more information.
Hastings College and the Inter-Greek Council policies mandate that the recruitment process be alcohol-free. All students must attend an anti-hazing presentation held in conjunction with Bid Night.
