Recruitment / Intake


We are very excited on your decision to join a fraternity or sorority at Lindenwood University! By going through the recruitment/intake process, you are starting a new chapter in your life and we are excited to help you shape your future and celebrate each achievement with you. By affiliating with a fraternity or sorority, you are committing yourself to the ideals set forth by our founders and continuing their work of scholarship, service, philanthropy, and brotherhood/sisterhood.  Below you will find a link to our Guidelines for Recruitment, which we hope you will find helpful and insightful.

What is the difference between Recruitment & Intake?

  • Recruitment is in reference to joining one of the organizations within our Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Association. The Interfraternity Council hosts a Rush Week involving orientation, community events, social events, an invite-only event, and ends with Bid Day (our new member reveal). The Panhellenic Association has a formal recruitment practice in the fall involving an orientation, philanthropy and sisterhood-themed events to get to know the potential new members, a Preference Night, and then a Bid Day.
  • Intake is in reference to joining Alpha Psi Lambda or one of our NPHC city-wide organizations. The intake process involves informational meetings, social events, and submission of an application. *Alpha Psi Lambda and NPHC organizations are not open to first-semester freshmen, but that does not mean that you can’t take the time to get to know them.*
