During the recruitment process, each potential new member is assigned to a recruitment advisor group. Each group has one (1) assigned recruitment advisor (Rho Alpha) who will be a point of contact for the PNMs throughout the recruitment process. These are upperclassmen fraternity men who assist with the recruitment process. They are great resources for potential members to learn more about the fraternity experience, membership expectations, and recruitment events. The Rho Alpha role involves a competitive selection process as well as training prior to the start of recruitment.
All active and potential new members participating in the recruitment process are
required to follow all public health directives. Campus policy related to physical
distancing, event caps, and face coverings must be followed. Anyone not following
policy may be removed from the recruitment process.
The council will maintain communication with university administration and chapters to determine the best and safest way to host the recruitment process.
