Pi Sigma Epsilon is open to all Applachian State University students that have an overall GPA of 2.25 or higher. Freshmen without a standing GPA yet are the exception. While PSE is marketing-oriented, all majors are welcome to join. This is because fine-tuned marketing skills are beneficial for any major and career. Students with at least two remaining semesters can join, although it is recommended to join early. Most members admit that they wish they joined sooner to have more opportunities within Pi Sigma Epsilon and to participate in everything the organization has to offer.
The Recruitment Process
In order to join PSE, prospective members must go through a recruiting process designed to retain and develop talented people that can contribute to the organization. Recruiting as a group develops team-building qualities that are going to be used as a member. This process lasts for a large portion of the semester. Prospective members are given certain tasks throughout the semester, a couple of them are mentioned below.
Prospective Member Project
The recruitment class is required to complete a marketing or sales project. Examples of past projects have been selling Appalachian State Football koozies, hosting a Trivia Night on campus and raising funds for a charity golf tournament. In addition to this project, prospective members are asked to contribute time to our usual sales or community service projects.
Prospective members, as well as current members are expected to participate in our philanthropic efforts to help our community. We have adopted Hardin St. on campus and we also work with organizations such as the Watagua County Humane Society, Horse Helpers and the Hospitality House of Boone.
Among the tasks listed above, Pi Sigma Epsilon holds many social events throughout the semester. These are great opportunities for Prospective Members to get to know the general membership better. We even have a semi formal in the fall, usually at a cabin in the mountains, and a formal in the spring, usually at the beach for the weekend. These events will make your time in Pi Sigma Epsilon! Afterall, one of the most important things to us is brotherhood.
