Fall 2016 Fraternity Recruitment Is Officially Open

Those interested in joining one of Penn State’s fraternities are now able to register to go through formal rush.

Information sessions begin tomorrow and anyone interested in rushing a fraternity (AKA a Potential New Member) must register before attending an information session, which you can do here.

Make sure you set up to do your registration all in one sitting because once the form is completed it can’t be edited. Additionally, you’ll need to provide a photo of yourself.

Zone Days, which are essentially open houses for each fraternity, will be held from Sunday, August 28 through Thursday, September 1. Each house is zoned into a different color based on its location, and you can find which houses are in which zone here. The houses are open and you can walk down frat row and go into the houses that interest you the most.

Fraternities will ultimately give out bids on Tuesday, September 13 and Potential New Members will accept bids over the following two days.

If you’re interested in rushing or if you need some additional info, check out the Penn State Interfraternity Council (IFC) on Facebook, Twitter (@PennStateIFC and @PSUIFCRecruit), or at its website. Potential New Members can also contact the IFC’s VP of Recruitment Jon Axelsson with any questions at [email protected]
