Tip Sheet for Virtual Elections
I am a fraternity or sorority new member/associate member/interest. Are we allowed to finish our new member process/member intake process?
  • The following directives are in place for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester:Per the University's on March 10th, 2020, in-person events are canceled until further notice. That said, no in-person member intake/new member education meetings may take place. Online new member education may continue through Zoom or other telecommunication platforms unless otherwise directed by your National Office/IHQ. Any online new member education meetings should be registered on 1850 as virtual events. This includes any Big/Little events if your chapter has such a structure in place. 
  • Any in-person initiation rituals and new member presentations shall be put on hold until further notice. While typically, we would not allow chapters to carry over a new member class into another semester, FSL will make the exception to extend the current new member period until students can be safely initiated when we return to campus. Chapters should not add additional tasks or requirements for their new members past what their new member program calls for. If a chapter can hold a safe initiation ceremony prior to Fall 2020, they may do so if it meets the following criteria:
    • The initiation ritual does not violate any University, Federal, State, or Local mandates/directives regarding events, gathering, travel or "Stay At Home" orders.
    • The initiation ritual does not add additional costs for its new members for travel that would potentially deter new members from participating.
    • The initiation ritual must have support and presence from their organization's regional or national leadership.
    • FSL MUST approve this and be in touch with the organization's regional or national leadership. 
      • If your National Office/IHQ has told you to cease your process, you must do so and follow the guidelines they have set out for you. 
      • Chapters should continue to abide by all Standards of Behavior and Code of Conduct as well as the University's Hazing Policy.
How will COVID 19 affect fall recruitment/intake?
  • At this time, the Fraternity and Sorority Life staff is working hard to plan for all scenarios for our fall semester. We will make a determination on how fall recruitment/intake will occur once we know more about University, Federal, State, and Local mandates regarding events, gathering, travel or "Stay At Home" orders.
How is FSL maintaining communication with stakeholders during this uncertain time?
  • We are working with all of our stakeholders, especially council leaders, chapter leaders, and advisers to maintain our scheduled meetings via Zoom, email, and phone,  as well as finding new ways to connect as a community during this time.
