Two hundred sixty-five men received bids to 16 Interfraternity Council fraternities Friday night, approximately 67 percent of the men that registered, according to Director of Greek Life Kristin Torrey.

The retention rate was a small increase from last year, Torrey added.

Lambda Chi Alpha welcomed 26 new members, the most of any fraternity. It was increase of 10 men from a year ago.

“Our rush chair did a great job and a lot more of the house got behind rush,” said Kristian Stensland, president of Lambda Chi Alpha. “I’m very excited about the new guys we’re bringing in.”

Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi and Zeta Beta Tau brought in 23 new members, while Sigma Phi Epsilon welcomed 22.
