Sunday, January 25: 1:15 - 3:00 pm – Meet and
Greet/Chili Cook-Off 3:00-5:00 pm- Hendrix Theater
Each new recruit will meet at Hendrix Theater inside of the
Mendenhall Student Center around 1:15 PM. There you will check in for
recruitment registration and pick-up your complementary t-shirt. After
signing in, you will then enter the theater itself where each fraternity on
campus will present a short speech outlining the core-values and activities of
their brotherhood. After all of the fraternities have finished giving their
speeches, the entire room will then relocate to the Brickyard (located outside
of Medenhall) for the Chili Cook-Off. The Chili Cook-Off is an annual contest
that exists between all fraternities to determine which chapter can create the
best chili. For each potential new member it will provide an opportunity to
approach each fraternity on a one-on-one basis to try and learn more about each
brotherhood on a more personal level. A free ticket will be provided to
everyone signed up for Spring Recruitment that will allow for unlimited chili.
$5 will be charged to all of those not signed up.
