After the conclusion of the largest women’s recruitment in Belmont history, the men were prepared to step up to the challenge. Could they have a record breaking recruitment as well? Absolutely.
With an astonishing number of men interested, the fraternities–Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Delta Theta and Phi Kappa Tau–set out to show them what Greek life at Belmont is all about. From community service, academic support, leadership development to just good fun with a group of men, recruitment at Belmont is about creating connections. Now with over 200 men in the fraternity community at Belmont the fraternal system continues to grow and change in positive ways.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) who governs Belmont’s fraternal system focused this year on building community and having a values-centered recruitment process. Their goal is that every man and every fraternity have an opportunity to interact and learn about one another. From Dodgeball, to Shrimp Boils, from Cookouts to Casino Nights, every exciting activity is focused on relationship building and communicating the core values of the fraternity to interested individuals.
Fraternity Recruitment concluded on Sat., Sept. 18 at the Greek Life open house during Belmont’s Parents Weekend. Parents, friends and families were there to welcome the 88 new members to the fraternal community here at Belmont as they excitedly poured into the Curb Café.
With more than 500 students involved, the entire Belmont Greek community is continuing to build and live into the values-centered community that makes Greek life such a positive experience at Belmont.
