Business fraternities offer a unique opportunity for you to challenge and improve yourself. No other type of business organization provides an intensive development program, an extensive international alumni network, or a sense of brotherhood only gained through the pledging experience that a business fraternity provides.
Recruitment occurs over the span of two weeks at the beginning of each semester. Attending an information session as well as the various recruitment events and socials will give you an edge during the interview process. This is a great time to begin creating friendships with the brothers of our chapter.
Pledges are required to attend 8 weekly pledge meetings each Wednesday lasting about 1 hours in length. The pledge class as a whole will plan and attend a professional event, community service event, fundraising event, and social that may occur on weekends. We estimate the time commitment to be equivalent to a two-credit-hour class.
There is no fixed number of candidates we take each semester. The size of the pledge class depends on the quality of the applicant pool. Pledge classes have ranged from 17 to 39 pledges in past semesters.
All prospective candidates are required to fill out an application HERE and email it to our Senior Vice President, Hannah Stevens. We will have multiple information sessions and recruitment events leading up to this deadline to meet the brothers of our chapter. Throughout the process, recruits can sign up for an interview time on February 6th starting at 5:00 pm. Following interviews, we will email out bids to the candidates we accept on February 7th.
All candidates are required to wear business professional dress to the interview and bring 10 copies of his or her resume. You will rotate through two to three rooms and be asked both situational and behavioral questions. This interview is intended to not only gauge your professionalism but also your character to see if you will be a good fit in the Beta Upsilon chapter. Professionalism is key, but try to relax and smile!
Absolutely! We look at re-applications as a sign of dedication, persistence, and commitment. Be sure to illustrate to active members how you’ve developed since last applying and what you’ve done to get closer to accomplishing your goals.
