This semester, three men’s social clubs are conducting spring pledging: Delta Chi Rho, Frater Sodalis and Trojans.
An interest meeting will take place in the Living Room of the Campus Center on January 15 at 5:15 p.m., said Mike Spell, social club adviser.
The meeting is for any eligible male interested in joining any of the three clubs during the spring pledging season.
Delta Chi Rho president Chris Smith said the club’s policies differ from other social clubs on campus.
“All of Delta Chi Rho’s active members repledge every time pledging occurs, so spring pledging is not usually as intensive as fall pledging,” Smith said. “This avoids making unreasonable demands on the members’ time and energy, and new members will have a chance to catch up on any experiences they may have missed during the fall.”
Will Smith, president of Frater Sodalis, said although spring pledging is smaller in participation, members give this pledge class as much attention as the fall class.
“Spring pledging for Frater Sodalis is a big deal,” Smith said. “We take a great deal of pride in offering spring pledging; therefore, we put the same time and effort into the process, beginning with rushes all the way through.”
