MGC organizations use variations of a process known as membership intake to gain new members.

Each organization will decide when it will host an intake process. This is typically once every calendar year. The organization will pst flyers and other forms of notifications advertising the interest meeting or rush. Flyers are posted in the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at least 2 weeks prior to the process or interest meeting.

These processes are discrete. Therefore, you will be informed of the timeline of the process, if you are selected for membership.
