IFC Recruitment

2017 Interfraternity Formal Recruitment

Men’s IFC recruitment is a dynamic system. With two forms of recruitment (formal and informal), the Interfraternity Council (IFC) strives to provide an organized and effective way for a prospective member to become a member of an IFC fraternity at Mizzou. Specifically, the Interfraternity Council has strict policies pertaining to 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 each fraternal organization upholds. Each fraternity has their own core values and both recruitment processes provide an avenue for a prospective member to determine if an IFC fraternity is right for him.

IFC Recruitment FAQ

How much does Formal Recruitment cost and what does my fee cover?

More information will be posted soon.

How does the Formal Recruitment process work?

The Formal Recruitment process starts out with an expo that allows Potential New Members to meet representatives from all of our IFC fraternities. The rest of the process is through mutual selection where potential new members (PNMs) will select chapters that they are interested in and chapters will select PNM’s that they determine are the best fit.

What is the difference between Formal and Informal Recruitment?

Formal Recruitment is run through IFC and allows Potential New Members to meet members from all 30 fraternities in the Fall. Informal Recruitment can happen at any time, and requires the PNM to contact the fraternities directly about their individual recruitment processes. Fraternities often have informal recruitment events throughout the year.
