Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment Formal 2021




Formal Panhellenic Recruitment Process:

DEADLINE EXTENDED!!!   Registration Closes at 9:00 A.M. on September 16, 2021

Formal sorority recruitment is organized, coordinated, and managed by the Panhellenic Council. It takes place in September and involves three rounds of recruitment events. During these events, current sorority members will meet and converse with potential new members (PNMs).

The following sororities participate in Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment: 

  • Alpha Sigma Alpha
  • Alpha Sigma Tau
  • Delta Zeta
  • Gamma Phi Beta
  • Sigma Sigma Sigma

Recruitment Eligibility

To be eligible for Panhellenic sorority recruitment you must:

  • Be enrolled as a full-time, degree seeking student at USI.
  • Most chapters have, at least, a minimum 2.6 GPA; please note, some sororities have a higher GPA requirement.
  • Register for recruitment via the online form HERE.
  • Pay the $30 non-refundable recruitment registration fee.
  • Plan to attend all recruitment events -- virtual or otherwise. Missing any part of recruitment makes it more difficult for the women in each sorority to get to know you and may limit the ability to place you in an organization. 

Formal Recruitment is on September 17 through September 19, 2021. Bid Day, the day where interested women find out what chapter they are invited to join, will occur on September 19 in the late afternoon.

Preference Round consists of each PNM visiting up to two events lasting 60 minutes each. The sorority members will explain to PMNs what it means to be a member of their sorority and what their sorority could offer the PNM. This round provides the deepest level of insight for the PNM to help pick their chapter. During this round, Panhellenic encourages PNMs to think back on the previous rounds and recall what they liked best about these sororities and why they would choose to join a particular group. When choosing a sorority, keep things in perspective.
