How Does Fraternity Recruitment & Fraternity New Member Processes Work?

Each Fraternity hosts their own individual recruitment events during the beginning of each semester for about 3 weeks, which includes open and invite only events conducted by each fraternity. Some of the open events our chapters host include meet the brothers, basketball, wing night, poker, and many more just to give an example. Closed events will include 1:1 interviews and smaller numbers of potential new members as chapter begin to make invitation, or bidding, decisions. Chapters may most in-person and/or virtual events. Alcohol is not permitted to be possessed, consumed or distrubuted at any recruitment event regardless of age. 

Potential New Members will pursue chapters by attending their recruitment events and getting to know members & the organization at the events. We recommend potential new members keep an open mind, and check out as many fraternities as possible in the beginning and begin to narrow in on 1-3 chapters once you have attended more and more recruitment events to chapters you are most interested in. Keeping an open mind and meeting with as many fraternties strengthens your opportunity to find an organization that is a best fit for you & the chapter. 

Recruitment ends with Bid Day in which chapters will first begin extending bids to potential new members. Following Bid Day, chapters may continue recruiting and extending bids until the end of the semester, so there are always opportunities to join an IFC Fraternity outside of the traditional recruitment period. 

Fraternity new member processes will begin after Bid Day for 6-8 weeks, wrapping up by Thanksgiving Break in the fall and early to mid April in the spring. During this time, new members (chapters may also use the term pledges or associate members) will learn about the organization's national history, leadership positions in the organization & attend chapter events learning about and experiencing brotherhood, philanthropy, risk management, health & wellness and leadership, as well as attending URI's Greek 101 program in October. Hazing, Alcohol & Drug Abuse is not tolerated in ANY fraternity new member process or any program at the University of Rhode Island per the URI Student Handbook and each of our 16 inter/national fratenities.
