Texas Asian Pan-Hellenic Council (TAPC) Recruitment
Texas Asian Pan-Hellenic Council recruitment takes place in both the fall and spring semesters. During the second week of each long semester, TAPC organizations distribute fliers on the West mall and in Jester residence hall. The rush period, which lasts the entire week, is intended to simulate the experience of being a member of a TAPC organization, and may include a service project, mixer and sisterhood or brotherhood event. To receive a bid, potential new members must submit applications and be interviewed.
The new member process lasts 8-12 weeks and includes a formal presentation to family, friends, etc., as well as a special ceremony for new recruits to become initiated members of the chapter. This ceremony typically marks the end of the new member process.
