Interfraternity Council Recruitment
Dear Potential New Members,
My name is Cody Applegarth and I am the 2015 Vice President of Recruitment for the Interfraternity Council.
Being a member of Fraternity Life at Missouri State means much more than simply going to social events, wearing your letters, and attending chapter meetings each week. Fraternities provide friendship and connections that last well beyond the college years. As a member of Fraternity Life, being in a fraternity means being part of a brotherhood that will stick with you for the rest of your life. With 18 chapters on campus, Fraternity Life provides you with a numerous amount of opportunities to follow your passion and find your place.
Recruitment is one of the most exciting times of the year for any fraternity. Here at Missouri State, we have a little different recruitment process. There will be a two-day period (August 22nd and 23rd) where you can see each chapter, and meet guys of that chapter, all in one building. Then, we will have a 12 day (August 24th-September 4th) period where you can go visit the chapters you are interested in. Here, they will hold events where you can meet large portions of each chapter.
When deciding what advice to give you all; I thought about how I felt when I was standing where you are currently—it was a mix of fear, nervousness, and excitement. I encourage you to, during this process, come in with an open mind, be your true self, and seek fraternities on their specific, tangible merits. I have no doubt in my mind that you will find a new home in a fraternity on campus.
Congratulations on your decision to participate in the Interfraternity Council Recruitment process. You are currently starting a journey that thousands of Missouri State University men have gone through in the past and I hope that you too will make the decision to join Fraternity Life as they have.
