Formal spring recruitment for WKU fraternities started tonight in DUC 340 with an orientation for all registered men, and others who wanted to attend.

A total of 43 men went through the formal process of registering for recruitment, but Alissa Mansfield, Student Activities Coordinator, said she expects that number to double after the orientation.

Bryan Hartzell, Interfraternity Council President, reminded the delegates at the IFC meeting tonight to “be smart” during recruitment week.

“No alcohol. No sorority women at the house,” Hartzell said.

Throughout the week, potential pledges will visit all the eligible fraternity houses and receive their bids on Feb. 3.

“Even if you don’t sign a bid, recruitment is a great time to step out of your comfort zone and make a lot of friends,” Hartzell said.
