Not every sorority and fraternity brings in new members in the same way. Listed below are our three councils at UL. This is how each of them conducts their new member process.

Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment
Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi, Kappa Delta, Delta Delta Delta, Phi Mu, and Sigma Sigma Sigma sororities participate in Panhellenic Formal Sorority Recruitment. Sorority Recruitment is held once a year in August. This is a hectic but fun week of events that will end with Bid Day!
Interfraternity Council Recruitment
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Theta Xi, Kappa Alpha, Pi Kappa Alpha, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Kappa Theta, Sigma Nu, Phi Kappa Psi, Sigma Chi, and Delta Tau Delta fraternities participate in Interfraternity Council Recruitment.
IFC conducts a less formal version of the Panhellenic women's recruitment. This will be a relaxed opportunity to pop by each of the Fraternity houses, and learn a little more about the type of men in the organization and the experiences they provide. IFC Formal Recruitment will be in September. Delta Tau Delta's recolonization recruitment will be in October.
National Panhellenic Council (NPHC) Intake
Membership intake for Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Sigma Gamma Rho, Phi Beta Sigma, and Zeta Phi Beta officially begins with an invitation to join from the organization. This is usually in the form of a letter from the chapter advisor. Membership intake activities WILL NOT begin until each potential member has received the invitation for membership from the organization AND attended the University Anti-Hazing meeting presented by the Greek Deans. Once both have occurred then the membership intake process can begin.
NPHC Meet the Greeks is a recruitment informational event that is sponsored by NPHC and held every September. This is a great opportunity to meet all of the NPHC Greeks and begin to determine which organization will be best for you, if you have not already!
