    Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) & National Pan-Hellenic Council (Divine Nine)
    • Recruitment takes place throughout the year, but the new member intake process normally starts the first weeks of each term.
      • This new membership timeline depends on the organization as well as how many students are interested in joining.

Once the new member process is over, students become members - known as "crossing" into the fraternity.
