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 alcohol 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.
