IFC Recruitment functions in two ways: informal and formal recruitment. You must create an account on CampusDirector if you want to accept a bid through the informal recruitment process. After creating your account, you can register for the formal recruitment process by paying the $35 formal recruitment fee found on CampusDirector.
Men’s IFC recruitment is a dynamic system. With two forms of recruitment (formal and informal), IFC strives to provide an organized and effective way for a prospective member to become a member of an IFC fraternity at Mizzou. Specifically, IFC has strict policies pertaining to an alcohol-free formal and informal recruitment process. Finally, the intended outcomes of formal and informal recruitment are the same: to showcase the values and principles that each fraternal organization upholds. Each fraternity has its own core values and both recruitment processes provide an avenue for a prospective member to determine if an IFC fraternity is right for him.
Each potential new member (PNM) should register for recruitment. Registration is $35 for formal and informal recruitment. Once you register, your information will then be shared with IFC fraternities to contact you. In addition, please review the IFC Recruitment Guide and reach out to chapters who you are interested in.

The formal recruitment process begins with an orientation the evening of August 16. Here you will meet your Rho Gamma group and receive an overview of the process. The following two days are rotating visits between chapters. The third day is another visit day involving 8 chapters you have chosen in a mutual selection process. The final day is bid day where you will view your bid(s) to join an organization.
Yes. We work closely with the Honors College to ensure that you are able to attend events throughout the week. If you are in the Honors College or have additional scheduling conflicts during recruitment please email IFCRecruitment@missouri.edu.
IFC recruitment encompasses both formal and informal recruitment. Formal recruitment is a 5-day process that occurs the week before classes begin. Potential New Members (PNMs) will visit with all IFC organizations and have the opportunity for follow-up visits with chapters of their choosing. The informal recruitment process occurs all year long with the exception of the formal recruitment days. The informal recruitment process involves more direct communication with chapters. Regardless of how you choose to join the IFC community, you must create a CampusDirector account to be offered a bid for membership into an organization. Start the registration process.
A Rho Gamma is a recruitment guide. A Rho Gamma’s role is to serve the IFC community via formal recruitment and membership education and development. The individuals selected for these positions will be trained in many aspects of what it means to be a fraternity man, as well as the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and the university at large. The responsibilities of these positions will start in the spring semester and end towards the close of the fall semester, including the summer for formal recruitment.
We know that IFC Formal Recruitment occurs at the same time as Welcome Week. We want to make sure that Potential New Members have the opportunity to take part in Academic Day activities. If you’re interested in attending an Academic Day Event, please contact the IFC Recruitment team at IFCRecruitment@missouri.edu to work on scheduling. Visit the Welcome Week site to view the full schedule.
