For Greek-letter organizations, they must continually recruit new members. It is the charge of GLOs to enhance the experience of new/prospective members by providing membership education and utilizing ritual. During their recruitment practices, organizations must ensure that all new member/membership intake activities reflect the core values of the College, including honor, academic excellence, and integrity.
The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life operates under a deferred recruitment model. A student must successfully complete at least one semester of college before being eligible for recruitment and/or the intake process. Any student wishing to join an organization must be a regularly enrolled, full-time student in good standing with Wofford College.
In order to become a member of an organization, students must have a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA and must not be on academic probation or academic exclusion. Organizations offering COB (continuous open bids) or snap bids must submit the names of students to OFSL to check eligibility before bids are offered.
Formal Recruitment for Panhellenic and IFC organizations typically takes place the second week of the spring semester and all students going through Formal Recruitment must register in advance.
The Wofford Panhellenic Council and Wofford IFC each have specific rules around recruitment. Links to those rules for this year will be posted during the first weeks of the fall semester.
