frequently asked questions
FAQ

WHAT IS RECRUITMENT?

Recruitment is a time for you to meet the brothers of Beta Nu through various social events in the beginning of each semester.  It is the period in which potential recruits learn more about the fraternity with absolutely no obligation. Even though you may be unsure about seeking membership in the fraternity, recruitment week is simply a time for you to enjoy the events we have planned and learn more about Phi Delta Chi. All events are completely free of charge!

WHAT IS A BID?

Bids are invitations to begin the new member education process for the fraternity. While an invitation to our final event, "Dregs of Wine" (our invite-only dinner), is a promising sign of interest, it is not the same as a bid to begin candidacy. 

AM I ELIGIBLE?

Those candidates who receive a bid will have the option of whether or not to continue with the new member process. At our Chapter, there are a few requirements that interested individuals must abide by to be considered for a bid. In order to begin the process of becoming a Brother, the individual must at least:

  • be a first-year, second semester pharmacy student (PP1, spring semester) 

  • have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and minimum semester GPA of 2.8

  • attend 3 of 5 recruitment events 

MEMBER EXPECTATIONS?

PDC is a diverse, committed, and engaged Brotherhood of students and alumni that is widely recognized for empowering Brothers to lead and serve. We sustain a strong pipeline of leaders actively engaged in the pharmacy profession. Members are expected to attend all formal meetings, attend fraternity events, and pay dues each semester. Those who do not meet these expectations may be charged fines per each offense. Dues may slightly vary, but members pay approximately $150 each semester, and an additional new member fee of $65 only upon the first semester of joining.

HOW DO I BECOME A BROTHER?

The new member education process lasts about 6-8 weeks. During these few weeks, new members will learn about the history of our Fraternity and develop leadership skills that Phi Delta Chi Brothers possess. The candidates will be educated about Phi Delta Chi on both a chapter and national level. Furthermore, the candidates will engage in team building activities and participate in projects that will foster the development of skills important for a future pharmacist. We also promote Brotherhood among our members and hope to see the prospective brothers establish an understanding of what we stand for and the Brotherhood values our Fraternity shares. 

HAZING/ALCOHOL POLICY?

Hazing activities: "Any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule." 


Our Chapter abides by strict no hazing and no alcohol policies. As a prospective brother, you will never be forced to consume alcohol or participate in any activity that can jeopardize your health and well-being. 


Our recruitment events are dry: no alcohol will be served or consumed during our campus events. There will also be no alcohol present during new member education activities.
