Men interested in joining a fraternity at Minnesota State Mankato, who have not already joined a chapter through summer or early Fall recruitment, will want to take advantage of the opportunity provided through Structured Recruitment. Through this process, they will be able to meet members from all of the fraternities on campus and will be able to make a decision about where they best fit. Some chapters will continue to recruit after this process, but some may begin their member education programs and choose not to accept Fall new members after this process. Events begin on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, with an optional, but highly-encouraged Fraternity Meet-and-Greet from 6:45-8:30 p.m. The actual Structured Recruitment process takes place Thursday-Saturday, August 26-29th. Those participating should be available for the whole process. "Bid Day," or the day on which men may actually receive bids, or invitations to join, will be Sunday, August 29th. In order to register, you will need both your MSU StarID and your TechID numbers. For further information, contact Tim Tuchek, VP of Recruitment for the Interfraternity Council, at timothy.tuchek@mnsu.edu.
