How to Join
Each governing council at Southern Polytechnic State University has a different process to join a fraternity or sorority.
Each fall and spring the Interfraternity Council coordinates a "Formal Rush Week" where men interested in joining a chapter have an opportunity to preview each organization. Chapters offer bids, or invitations to join, at any time before, during, and after "Rush Week." For more information about joining an IFC fraternity, visit the IFC website.
National Pan-Hellenic Council
The fraternities and sororities that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) conduct membership intake at a time of a chapter's choosing. The intake process differs from organization to organization. For more information about membership intake in the NPHC, visit the NPHC website.
The Panhellenic Council uses a formal recruitment process the week before classes begin each fall semester when interested women visit each chapter on a specific schedule. In addition, Panhellenic chapters are eligible to accept new members after formal recruitment and during the spring semester in a process called Continuous Open Bidding.
