Joining a Fraternity or Sorority

The process to join depends on the chapter(s) you are most interested in. All groups have different requirements for membership and our groups follow a few different processes. Check out the information below to explore where to start:

Interfraternity Council (IFC) Recruitment

If you are interested in a men’s fraternity and want to learn more about Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Sigma Phi, Phi Sigma Kappa, Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma, or Triangle Fraternity, check out the Fraternity/Sorority Involvement Fair. Each chapter will have its fall recruitment schedule available. From there, you decide which groups you would like to know better and how you want to narrow down your options.

Panhellenic Council Sorority Recruitment

For Alpha Omicron Pi, Gamma Phi Beta, and Kappa Tau, fall sorority recruitment is held over a structured weekend of events that culminates with Bid Day. You must be present for the entire weekend. Interested women are required to pre-register for sorority recruitment, and participation costs $10.

  • Recruitment 2020 will be September 18-20, 2020 in the UWM Union

Interested women are also encouraged to participate in Sorority Recruitment 101. These sessions will be offered during Fall Welcome 2020.

Registration for Fall Recruitment 2020 will open in June of 2020.

Informal recruitment also occurs in the spring. The number of chapters participating may be limited.
