Mu Sigma Epsilon has recruitment within the first month of every new semester. Don't worry if you are just finding out about us now, there are plenty of opportunities to rush in the future! Subscribe to our email list for updates on when our next formal recruitment event will be.
Mu Sig recruitment is a week long process consisting of information sessions, get-to-know-you bonding nights, an audition, a formal interview, and finally, blue chip dinner and bid night (by invite only). If you are a music industry major or minor and do not perform, only doing the interview is perfectly acceptable. Once you have made it through the rush process, you will continue the semester as a PNM (potential new member) and are not an active member until formal initiation.
To be in Mu Sig, you must be a Thornton major, minor, or minor equivalent.
What is a minor equivalent?
If you are passionate about music, but due to extraneous circumstances cannot declare a major or minor, you must plan to have 16+ units in Thornton to be considered for Mu Sig.
Can I apply if I do not yet meet the requirements but seriously intend on adding a Thornton major or minor?
Yes, absolutely! Please let us know during the rush process. If you are in the process of applying, that's even better. If you rush but unfortunately are not accepted into Thornton, your membership will be reevaluated at the time.
