Sorority recruitment is formally structured process sponsored by the Panhellenic Association. Recruitment is a mutual selection process meaning that just as sororities have to choose new members, the participants have to decide which organization best reflects their values and wants for a collegiate Greek experience.
Sorority recruitment begins during the second week of the fall term. To avoid conflicts with classes, recruitment events are held in the evenings and on weekend days. During the first two days of recruitment, participants visit each chapter. As the process progresses, participants strive to find their fit within the Panhellenic community, while the chapters strive to determine who will best fit within their organizations as well. After the final round of recruitment, potential new members rank their choices and the sororities submit a preference list. To promote equity in the recruitment process, each sorority is permitted to pledge a maximum number of women, so a bid matching process determines which sorority each participant will join.
This year, Formal Recruitment will take place from September 10- 15, 2015. Sorority recruitment applications will open on June 1, 2015 at 8:00 am and closes September 6, 2015 at 5:00 pm. Registering is a short and simple process that takes approximately 15 minutes. The process goes quickly if you are prepared with the following information:
- Student ID # (JAC Card #)
- High School/College GPA on a 4.0 scale
- Top personal values
- List of activities, honors, and awards
- Downloaded picture

Fraternity Recruitment: Great Men Go Greek!
Fraternity recruitment occurs for two weeks at the beginning of every semester in a semi-structured format. The Interfraternity Council sponsors an Information Night to kick off recruitment, and then men interested in joining a fraternity attend a variety of functions at individual fraternity houses. Bids are extended at the end of those two weeks. Recruitment schedules for each individual organization will be posted on this website as they are received – you are also encouraged to contact a fraternity directly for more information about that organization’s recruitment schedule.
