Delayed Recruitment Process

Currently at Samford, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., participate in intake, a process delaying recruitment until a collegiate GPA is established. The individual requirements for participation in intake/to join are different for each chapter, but you can expect these generalities:

  • Must have 12 hours prior to joining a fraternity or sorority.
  • Need several recommendation letters. The chapters will provide specific information.
  • Need to demonstrate community service/community engagement.
  • Need to illustrate campus involvement.
  • Each chapter usually advertises via flyer on campus, so watch for those if you are interested in joining.

Delta Xi Phi, Multicultural Sorority, Inc.

Qualifications to Join

  • Possessing a 2.4 or higher cumulative GPA
  • Maintaining full-time status as a Samford student
  • Having a genuine interest in multiculturalism
  • Attend 1 information night and 2 recruitment events

After a week of recruitment events, invitations to formally join the sorority will be extended. There is a 6-8 week associate member process with initiation to full-member status occurring at the end of the semester.
