During the recruitment process, each potential new member is assigned to a recruitment advisor group. Each group has one (1) assigned recruitment advisor who will be a point of contact for the PNMs throughout the recruitment process. These are upperclassmen fraternity men who assist with the recruitment process. They are great resources for potential members to learn more about the fraternity experience, membership expectations, and recruitment events. The recruitment advisor role involves a competitive selection process as well as training prior to the start of recruitment.
