1) Start making contact with guys who could potentially be rushing in the fall. Chances are you are at home and hanging out with your old friends. Find out who will be attending your school in the fall and start laying the groundwork now. A little work now will go a long way in the fall.
About 10 years ago, our charter was revoked and we were officially removed from campus. However, we continued to function as an off-campus sort of Fraternity. This was without the blessing of nationals and was certainly condemned by administration.
Hi there! I am trying to find a new way to revamp my recruitment at Southeast Missouri State. I really want to get every potential new member to meet each chapter without stepping out of the 365 day recruitment process. Any thoughts?
I am my fraternity’s VP of Membership and I basically manage and run our fraternity recruitment and new member education. My problem deals with recruitment.
I am our fraternity president, and I was previously a VP Recruitment. I did a good job but I know now how much more our house can do to recruit better guys more guys and more efficiently. I didn’t see this as rush chair because I was thrown into the position, and we have an unfortunate tradition of apathy we are trying to rid.
I’m wondering how your fraternity decided to give out bids. My chapter does not come together to decide who gets one – the Recruitment Chair and one or two other guys, usually the former Recruitment Chair and an assistant to the current simply decide together. I feel that this results in a lot of “The Recruitment Chair liked you so you’re in” rather than “The chapter liked you so you’re in” which is how I feel it ought to be.
What do I do about the rush ninja? You know who I mean…its that guy in the fraternity who snuck his way in through rush and pledgeship, and came out a total asshole who causes girls to leave parties and in some cases brothers to go inactive.
What do you think about men who don’t drink? I’m looking at one fraternity right now who don’t appear to be wild about it. I’m fine around drinking, I just choose not to. Is there a place in greek life for the dry guy?
He has a fraternity brother who had his younger brother rush. For whatever reason, the brotherhood decided the younger brother did not deserve a bid, and this caused some discontent in the fraternity. He asked me my opinion on legacies.
I am the newly elected VP of my fraternity. I came in a year and a half ago as a sophomore in a complete rebuilding scenario. We are at a small school and currently only have 16 actives. The average “good” fraternity here has around 50-70 guys. Before I came in the type of guys that were here made us one of the few pretty much GDI fraternities here. All of those guys smoked pot and were pretty worthless so you can imagine our reputation around campus.
4 Spring Rush Rules
1 – For a lot of fraternities, it is difficult to get brothers motivated during the spring recruitment period. Brothers just aren’t as interested for whatever reason.
