HOW DO I JOIN A SORORITY?
Sororities participate in sorority recruitment annually (Fall or Spring depending on the university), during which time invitations for membership are extended to potential members. You must register with the Panhellenic organization AT YOUR UNIVERSITY to participate in sorority recruitment.
WHAT IS SORORITY RECRUITMENT?
Sorority recruitment is a formal process for prospective sorority members to meet women of the sorority chapters at the campus, and for the sorority women to meet the potential new members. This is the time to learn about the values, traditions, and programming of the individual sororities. Recruitment is a mutual selection process that takes place over a period of several days. Recruitment is different at every campus.
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE RECRUITMENT PERIOD?
The registration process varies from campus to campus. Ask questions during your campus visit. We suggest you contact your University’s student affairs, Greek affairs or Panhellenic office. Many universities post recruitment information on their website.
HOW CAN PRAP HELP ME WITH SORORITY RECRUITMENT?
Sorority alumnae assist in the sorority recruitment process by providing recruitment introductions also called references or recommendations to their collegiate chapters at various colleges and universities. When you register with Plano-Richardson Panhellenic, we make your information available to the alumni representatives of each NPC sorority at your campus.
WHAT ARE RECRUITMENT INTRODUCTIONS, REFERENCES, OR RECOMMENDATIONS?
Recruitment references can be compared to job references. They are personal endorsements, from sorority women, of women going through the recruitment process. It also gives sororities advance notice that you plan to participate in recruitment. These information sheets can be used by alumnae to write introductions, references, or recommendations on your behalf. The Plano-Richardson Alumnae Panhellenic distributes your information sheet to each of our members.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A SORORITY?
Joining a sorority can be the highlight of your college experience. Sororities and their women have so much to offer and enhance your time at college. Sororities offer a strong bond between women, sisterhood, events like Formals and mixers with fraternities and other groups on campus, and opportunity to be more involved with on-campus all-school events. The long-term advantages of sorority life far outlast the college years. Joining a sorority is a lifelong commitment that will provide you with lifelong friendships and experiences. Becoming a member of a national sorority means that there are thousands of other women across the country that you share a common bond with.
