Fraternity & Sorority Recruitment
Unlike many institutions, Trinity's sororities and fraternities do not accept new members until the spring semester. Additionally, formal recruitment does not start until September 15, 2013. We want our students to acclimate themselves to Trinity's academic environment before taking on the responsibilities of membership.
There are recruitment events throughout the fall semester and the beginning of the spring semester. Typically the sororities each host two formal parties in the fall and one formal party in the spring. The fraternities each host one formal party in the fall and one formal party in the spring. In addition to the large recruitment events, there are a number of informal events put on by each of the fraternities and sororities so that potential new members have an opportunity to meet the current members in the organizations. Although participation in fall rush is not a requirement to join a fraternity or sorority, we highly encourage potential new members to find out as much as possible about each organization so that the student can find his or her best fit.
Requirements for accepting a bid in the spring semester
- Must be a full-time undergraduate student, enrolled in at least 12 hours at Trinity University
- Must have completed one semester as a full-time student at Trinity University (having successfully completed at least 12 hours) or be a transfer student with at least a sophomore standing
- Must have at least a 2.3 cumulative grade point average
- First Year Student-athletes only: Must have at least a 2.6 cumulative grade point average
