If interested in joining a fraternity, you can participate in a process called Membership Recruitment. Membership Recruitment is the term used to describe how fraternities and sororities attract and pledge new members. Recruitment is an unending process. At Wittenberg, however, we have two periods (one each semester) of condensed recruitment events.
A week of informal events takes place in fall for upperclass students only. Contact individual organizations for information on upcoming recruitment events. More information on individual chapter events will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
Formal Recruitment takes place in January for first year students as well as others who are interested. The Fraternity Life FAQ sheet and Fraternity Recruitment Information packet will give you more information about the process used during the spring. Additional information will be posted on this site as it becomes available.
Recruitment means meeting and making friends, in classes, sports, clubs, CDR or wherever Greek and non-Greek students interact. You are welcome and encouraged to ask fraternity members general questions about Greek life anytime you wish. Get to know them and let them get to know you.
To be eligible for membership in a Wittenberg fraternity, you must have completed 12-15 credits at Wittenberg with a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA, or have completed 16 credits with a minimum 2.50 cumulative GPA (some chapters have higher scholarship standards that they are looking for).
For more information on fraternity recruitment in general, contact the IFC Vice President of Recruitment, Max Jump (jumpb@witt...).
