($10 registration fee before July 31, $25 registration fee after July 31.)

Thursday, August 15 – Sunday, August 18, 2019

Panhellenic Recruitment is a mutual selection process where a potential member has the opportunity to meet with chapter members, ask a variety of questions, and tour the chapter houses.

Recruitment is a fun-filled week of socials, during which sororities share their sisterhood with potential new members. This week allows you to get a glimpse into the personalities and values of each of the chapters. Just as sororities are looking for the right women to join their chapters, you should be looking for a chapter that fits you. Each sorority has something unique to offer.

On the first day of Recruitment (as well as the house tours on Thursday), you will visit all four chapters so you can get a glimpse of sorority life in general. After you have seen all four chapters, the mutual selection process begins! Just as you are making important decisions about where you fit, the chapter women are making important decisions too about the future members of their sorority. Potential new members are encouraged to ask questions during all events.

Recruitment Counselors, referred to as Pi Chis, are sorority women, who have chosen to disaffiliate from their sorority during the recruitment period, in order be a trustworthy resource and source of aid while leading women through recruitment. Since their sorority membership is unknown, potential new members should feel comfortable discussing their options and asking candid questions of their Pi Chis.

What to expect of Recruitment?

  1. Expect to be nervous and stressed. It's natural to have butterflies in your stomach when you meet the chapters, but it will get easier as the days progress. And remember, the sisters are just as nervous as you! They also feel a lot of pressure to find new sisters for their chapter. Just relax and smile, and recruitment will breeze by.
  2. Expect to meet a lot of new people! One of the best parts of recruitment is all the new people you meet, both peers and upperclass women. You may find your new best friend right in your recruitment group. At any rate, you're guaranteed to end recruitment with a whole bunch of new friends.
  3. Expect to be asked questions. Recruitment relies a lot on conversation and interaction to help you meet the sisters and for them to meet you. They want to know more about you, so don't be surprised if they ask you questions. At the same time, we encourage you to ask your own questions of them. You're trying to find out more about them, too!
  4. Expect to have fun!! Recruitment is not always serious. Your new sisters will be a lot of fun to meet!!
