The Saint Louis University fraternity and sorority life community is distributed across three councils. The Panhellenic Council (sorority), InterFraternity Council (fraternity) and Multi-cultural Greek Council (cultural identity based) each have a unique path to membership.
IFC Fraternity Recruitment Registration opens on December 1, 2020 and will be open until February 10, 2021. Registration is free, but it helps make virtual recruitment easier.
|Dates for Spring Recruitment|
|February 1||Meet and Greet|
|February 3||Open Events Start:
Open Events are for any PNM who is interested in meeting the brothers of their organization. Events tend to overlap with one another based on the scheduling VP for Recruitment creates. Usually, you will see chapters hosting about two-three of these types of events.

|February 11||Closed Events Begin:
Closed Events are for any PNM who has been invited back to meet with the brothers of their organization. Usually, you will see chapters host about two of these events. The last closed event is called the "Smoker," which we will see a change in the next few weeks.
|February 17||Bid Extension:
Bid Extensions are a 1:1 interaction outside with masks-on, 6 feet apart. Members are not allowed to go inside residence halls to deliver the bid. The conversation should be held to a minimum, as it is just the extending of the bid.
|February 18||Bid Extension Turn-In:
The Membership Acceptance Form must be turned into DeMattias Hall Front Desk between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. if the PNM wants to accept the bid.
Multicultural Greek Organization Recruitment
Students interested in joining MGC organizations can join through a process known as membership intake. The intake process for each chapter is defined by their international/national organization, and dates are set by the individual organization. Prior to the membership process, organizations host a rush or an informational, where students have the opportunity to express interest in a specific organization. After receiving an invitation for membership, students may begin the membership process.

Changes to Recruitment Due to COVID-19
Human connection is necessary more than ever and joining a fraternal organization is an excellent way to achieve that goal. Fraternities and sororities are an enriching part of the collegiate experience–regardless of how that experience is delivered: in person, virtually or a combination of the two.
In 2020-21, the recruitment experience will most likely look different than in years past. While we hope for the traditional recruitment model, social distancing restrictions from state and local authorities and University may effect our ability to provide the traditional in-person recruitment experience. As decisions are made, each council, with guidance from University staff, will adapt to the new limitations while still providing the opportunity to join an organization that can make the transition to college and through this pandemic easier.
Any changes to recruitment will be communicated via email to those that register for recruitment and will be updated on this website regularly.
