Fall 2017 Recruitment

What is recruitment?

Recruitment is the process by which students learn more about and join fraternities and sororities. Recruitment events in the fall semester are a bit smaller and less formal than events held in the spring, as only upperclassmen are eligible to participate.

Can I participate?

Upperclassmen & transfer students interested in joining a fraternity or sorority may participate in fall recruitment. You must have completed at least 12 hours on campus or have at least 12 transfer credits from another college or university that are accepted by WVU in order to participate in recruitment. Advanced placement or other credit earned in high school does not count. You also must have at least a 2.5 overall GPA.

    Can I wait until next semester? 

    Yes. During spring recruitment, any WVU students with at least 12 credit hours earned on campus or at another college or university and at least a 2.5 GPA can participate, which means next semester's recruitment isn't just for freshmen, but upperclassmen also. 

    What about freshmen? 

    Fall semester is a great time for you to get acquainted with campus, make friends, get involved in other organizations on campus, and get a great GPA to start your college career. Those are all things that fraternities and sororities look for when you participate in recruitment and we are excited for you to meet our organizations in the spring semester! 

    We'll have some opportunities for you to learn a little more this semester about Greek life at informational sessions and an info fair called Meet the Greeks. Be sure to follow us on social media for the latest details (Twitter & Instagram). 

    Meet the Greeks @ the Student Organization Fair 


    Tuesday, September 5 (11:00 AM - 2:00 PM) in the Vandalia Lounge of the Mountainlair
