Open House Round
Round One will give PNMs their first glimpse into each chapter. On this day, PNMs will visit all eleven chapters virtually over Zoom.
After this round, PNMs will preference their eight most preferred chapters and then their three least preferred in order. PNMs never "cut" a chapter.
PNMs will have up to eight chapters to visit over Zoom during Round Two. Each chapter will highlight the impacts their members, philanthropy work, and community service has on campus and larger communities, as well as the impact the chapter has had on its members in a short video. Then, PNMs will have the chance to get to know more chapter members during their conversations. Parties will be longer, so PNMs will have more time to talk about chapters' personalities and values.
After this round, PNMs will preference their five most preferred chapters and then their three least preferred in order. PNMs never "cut" a chapter.
PNMs will have up to five chapters to visit in-person (or virtually) during Round Three. Chapter members will give tours of their chapter facility to PNMs, showcasing the home-away-from-home and the sense of community that their chapter has given them. Then, PNMs will have conversations with chapter members where they learn what it means to be part of this chapter’s sisterhood. During this round, PNMs may want to ask chapter members about their sorority's finances and any live-in requirements (some chapters require members to live in their house at least one year.)
After this round, PNMs will preference their two most preferred chapters and then their three least preferred in order. PNMs never "cut" a chapter.
PNMs will have up to two chapters to visit in-person (or virtually) during Round Four. Preference Round focuses on the deepest aspects of sorority life: sisterhood and ritual. Each chapter will have their own way of sharing these special features with PNMs virtually. Preference parties are the longest parties of recruitment, and PNMs should gain a wholehearted understanding of their final chapters.
After this round, PNMs will preference the chapters they attend and sign the Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement, which will be explained to them during preferencing.
On Sunday, Bid Day will take place for PNMs to receive their bids and for chapters to welcome their new members! More details on Bid Day to come.
