Letter from the IFC President &
Vice President of Recruitment
Dear Potential New Member,
Congratulations on your decision to participate in the Interfraternity Council Recruitment
process. You are currently starting a journey that thousands of Syracuse University men have
gone through in the past and I hope that you too will make the decision to join fraternity life as
they have.
When deciding what advice to give you all as a group; we both thought about how we felt when
we were standing where you are currently—it was a mix of fear, nervousness, and excitement.
We both implore you to, during this process, come in with an open mind and judge fraternities
on their specific tangible merits. We have no doubt in our minds that at least one of you will find
a new home in a chapter that you had not previously considered.
Making the choice to “Go Greek” was one of the best decisions of our lives. This is truly an
exciting time and we wish you the best during this process. If you have any questions please do
not hesitate to reach out to either of us.
Marcelo P. Camacho
President, Interfraternity Council

a testing ground for young men who later become
leaders in business, education, government, religion
and science. A goal of our fraternity is to help each
student develop character, to learn responsibility,
and to develop a proper set of values through living
together in brotherhood. Alpha Epsilon Pi prepares

over should stand together and contend for supremacy
of good over evil; to teach, not politics, but morals;
to foster, not partisanship, but the recognition of true
merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within
which to work together for the elevation of man than
the outlines of the world: these were the thoughts and
hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the

Tips for Potential
New Members
1. Be interested regardless of whether or not
you think you like the fraternity. You will be
remembered, and you may decide you like the
group should you go to another event there.
5. Recruitment is mutual – you are selecting the
fraternity and they are selecting you.
2. Look at each fraternity as a whole; don’t judge it by
the few men you meet, or by the chapter facilities.
7. Chapters are not required to offer bids to legacies.
3. Ask questions – it helps the conversation and is a
sign of your interest.
4. Be mature in your decision making, and be realistic
about which members you feel most comfortable
with. Do not be influenced by others’ opinions.
6. Do not interpret any remark made at any event as
an assurance of a bid.
8. If you experience any challenges during the
recruitment process talk to your Rho Chi.
9. Get plenty of sleep.
10.Be yourself, and enjoy recruitment!
11.Keep your options open.
