Optional Activities and Fraternity & Sorority Life
This optional activity runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on day two of Summer Welcome. The purpose of Tiger Climb is to meet your fellow incoming students in a fun environment. Students will climb the Alpine Tower, which is a 60-foot climbing tower. This isn’t a climbing wall or indoor rock gym. The Alpine Tower is designed to provide a fun time for people of all climbing backgrounds. Never climbed before? That’s OK, the Tower has a route for you. Are you an experienced climber? Great, it’s got a challenge for you too. For more information about the Tower visit: https://ventureout.missouri.edu/programs/alpine-climbing-tower/.
Space is limited and an additional $20 fee is required for your Alpine Tower experience. Participation in Tiger Climb is limited to students only. Parents and guests are welcome to watch under our pavilion but climbing is limited only to students.
Tiger Climb will be offered during Summer Welcome sessions 3, 8, 12, and 14. If you choose to participate in Tiger Climb, you will receive an information packet when you arrive for Summer Welcome. The double sided waiver is included in the packet and must be signed by each student. Participants under the age of 18 will need their waiver signed by a parent.
Attendees should bring a water bottle and come dressed for an afternoon of exciting mental and physical challenges. If you have any questions regarding Tiger Climb, contact Venture Out at 573-882-8585 or ventureout.missouri.edu.
Interfraternity Council – Fraternity Recruitment
Fraternities are one of the best ways to shrink a large campus like Mizzou, by providing brotherhood, networking, service, academic support and social events. Participation in formal recruitment will give you the opportunity to meet men from each of the 29 Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternities. Formal recruitment is a three-day mutual-selection process in which male students will have the opportunity to meet with chapter members, ask questions, and meet other prospective members interested in Greek Life.
To register for formal recruitment, go to fsl.missouri.edu and follow the appropriate links under Prospective Members. There you will find details on cost, housing and deadlines when available.
