What is Formal Recruitment?
The organized 4 day process that women interested in joining a sorority sign up for through Panhellenic. It is during the fall semester each year.
How does recruitment work?
Primary Recruitment lasts 4 days and includes 4 recruitment “rounds” with Bid Day on the last day. Each woman going through recruitment will visit all 9 sororities between these days. During each round you will meet sisters from the chapters you visit and through a process of mutual selection, you will find the sisterhood that best suits you.
What can I expect and what do I wear?
For more details as well as suggested attire be sure to ask your Rho Gamma.
Can I still join a sorority without going through Primary Recruitment?
Yes! Many sororities also choose to recruit after Primary Recruitment is over or in the winter semesters.
What is a legacy?
A woman whose sister, mother, grandmother or aunt is or was a Sigma Kappa! Being a legacy does not guarantee membership to a sorority. Legacy status may be disclosed on the recruitment application.
What should I talk about during recruitment?
It’s important to be yourself and let the people you meet know your true colors! It’s great to talk about your interests, accomplishments and goals/future plans so the women you talk to get the best understanding of who you are and what you may bring to their sisterhood. Try thinking of a few topics about yourself you might want to bring up in conversation before recruitment starts.
Can upperclassmen go through recruitment?
Absolutely! Almost 50% of women going through recruitment in past years were upperclassmen (sophomore or higher).
