Collegiate Panhellenic Sorority Primary Recruitment:

This is the most common way to join a Panhellenic organization. 
Held each fall before classes begin, potiential members will have the opportunity to get a sneak peek into all Panhellenic organizations. Women have the opportunity to move into their assigned residence halls early, meet women in their residence halls living around them and visit with each chapter.

If you are interested in joining a Panhellenic organization, we recommend that you participate in Primary Recruitment, as many chapters will reach their capacity during this process.

Registration is now open!  Primary Recruitment 2018. 

Recruitment:  This is a very informal process that sororities use to take in new members after the conclusion of Panhellenic Sorority Primary Recruitment.  When a sorority holds an Recruitment event, they simply contact a potential new member on their own or you may contact the chapter currently recruiting and the chapter will hold a series of informal events to get to know you better.  Each chapter does it differently. Some might go to dinner with a potential member.  Some chapters might hold a 'craft night' at the chapter house and invite potential members to attend.
