Each of our four Greek councils have a different recruitment process. Some processes are more structured than others, may require registration, associated fees, and other requirements before seeking membership.
Check out The 2016 Guide to Greek Life! The 2017 Guide will be mailed to all incoming students home address in June and will be available on our webpage soon!
CPC hosts "Primary Recruitment" each Fall semester. Primary Recruitment is a highly structured recruitment process that allows you to visit each CPC sorority so that you have the opportunity to experience each one equally. Registration for primary recruitment is required along with a nominal registration fee of $80 (after August 1st the fee jumps to $90). During the week of recruitment, you will have the opportunity to meet several women from each sorority. Each day you will narrow down your top choices and so will the sorority, making it a "mutual selection process." Signing up and participating in primary recruitment does not obligate you to join a chapter at the end of the week.
Reccomendation Letters: Please mail Rec Letters and materials to the individual chapters! The address for each house should be listed on their website. You may also mail rec letters to our office with ATTN: (Sorority) and we will distribute to the chapters.
CPC also governs two associate member sororities that do not participate in the Formal Recruitment process. The associate member recruitment process is hosted a few weeks after Formal Recruitment in the Fall and during the second week of school in the Spring. Associate member recruitment is hosted by the individual sororities.

Spring Recruitment events only take place with chapters that are below 'total' chapter size; which is an average number decided by chapters and how many women are on their roster. Those individual chapters hosting recruitment events in the spring will be responsible for communicating the details out to campus.
IFC will host Fall Rush on August 17-22, 2017. You can register at fraternity.gatech.edu. Most commonly referred to as "Rush," IFC hosts an formal recruitment process in the fall and in spring. Each fraternity has food and events at their house during these times. During Rush, you can go to as many, or as few events as you would like. There are no requirements and no commitment. Fraternities may also host events outisde of formal recruitment, most commonly during the summer. All recruitment events throughout the year are dry - no alocohol is allowed per the IFC Bylaws. Any chapters that do not have a house will set up recruitment events at Peters Parking Deck.
At a fraternity event, you will meet many members and they will meet you - get to know each other! If the members think you are a good fit for their chapter, they will offer you a bid (an invitation to join). You may receive multiple bids, but can only accept one.
With 32 IFC Chapters, we recommend you do your research ahead of time to look at what each chapter offers. It is recommended that you visit about10 (or more) fraternities on day one and a different 10 (or more) on day two, spending 10-15 minutes at each. After that, narrow your choices down to 3-5 fraternities and spend more time at each. To accept a bid, you usually just say "I'd like to accept my bid". Its that easy!
While you can be recruited year-round, the official Rush period occurs during the first week of school in the Fall and the second week of school in the Spring. There is a co-ed fraternity as well that women and students are encourgaed to seek them out as an option.
