Interfraternity Council Recruitment

Wake Forest University is currently monitoring the COVID-19 situation and making decisions according to public health guidelines. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our community. Fall and spring recruitment plans will be made in accordance with CDC safety recommendations and guidance from Forsyth County and the state of North Carolina.

Interfraternity Council recruitment is the process where men who are interested in joining one of our social fraternities can explore their options. Recruitment takes place both fall and spring semesters, however the majority of members join spring semester.

Fall 2020 Recruitment

Spring 2021 Recruitment

Spring recruitment is an opportunity for second semester freshmen and all upperclassmen to explore membership in a fraternity. The process involves a combination of formal meet and greets and informal event attendance. To participate, students must submit a registration form and pay a fee.
