Roundtable interviews were held the Sunday at 9:00am on February 3rd
in our chapter meeting room. This interview is the next step in the North Carolina Chapter's recruitment process for new brothers. Everyone who attended Rush events was invited to come to Roundtable on Sunday afternoon for a formal interview. The applicants proceeded to sign up for an interview time by contacting our Censor. 33 brothers greeted the visiting students with a variety of snacks. The event began with a slide show of chapter activities, and then interviews began. One-by-one the students were interviewed in front of the entire brotherhood. They were first asked to talk about the pillar of AZ they find the most important. We then asked them questions to learn about their interests as well as why they want to join our Fraternity. The applicants have an opportunity to ask the brotherhood any questions they have. After they leave, we discuss positive and negative aspects of each applicant and vote on their admission into the Fraternity. Eighty-five percent of the brotherhood must vote yes for them to be extended a bid. If we vote yes, the Censor will call them later in the day to extend a "bid". The Censor informs the new candidates about the time commitments required for New Member Education Week to make sure they still want to join. We had 15 applicants interview, and all but 1 was extended a bid. We ended up with 14 candidates for New Member Education Week.
