Informals:
An informal is usually a laid back event that allows prospective members to meet some of the members of an organization. These events can range from simple Q&A sessions to including activities such as movies or board games. The idea is to have some interaction and meet new people while getting to know a bit about the organization.

Formals:
These events are more structured than the informal events. Many times there is a dress code, applications and interviews. Sometimes alumni and/or representatives from the organziation’s inter/national headquarters will be present. Formals usually end with the extension of a bid, or formal invitation, to prospective members to join an organization.
