Recruitment (aka "rush") is an exciting time for Kenyon students. During recruitment, the members of Kenyon's fraternities, sororities, and one society will be looking to meet as many students as possible who are interested in potentially joining a Greek organization. Since 1852, recruitment (formerly known as Rush) has had a rich tradition at Kenyon.

At Kenyon, recruitment for first year students does not begin until the second semester. Prior to the beginning of recruitment, Greek organizations will distribute schedules detailing the times and locations of events.

While formal recruitment only lasts a week, Greek Council encourages students to try to attend a variety of events in an effort to meet the active members of as many organizations as possible. When recruitment ends, any students interested in possibly joining a Greek organization must fill out an online interest form on a designated day in the Office of Student Engagement.

Bids to join Greek organizations will then be distributed. Students receiving a bid and interested in joining the respective organization must then complete a membership acceptance form, also in the Office of Student Engagement.
