What is Recruitment?

Formal recruitment, which takes place at the beginning of every school year in the fall, is the process by which active members of our 11 NPC member chapters meet potential new members (PNMs) interested in joining the Panhellenic community. PNMs have the opportunity throughout this weeklong process to discuss with current members their sororities' values, ideals, and activities. The formal recruitment period consists of four rounds: Open House, Chapter Living, Philanthropy, and Preference. Each round, PNMs will visit fewer houses as they and the chapters narrow their options. Following Preference Round, a PNM may be extended an invitation to join one of our chapters and attend its Bid Night celebration. There is a non-refundable fee required for participation in formal recruitment which covers all recruitment-related materials. The fee will be $80 if registered before July 1st, $90 if registered after July 1st and before August 1st, $95 if registered after August 1st and before September 1st, and $100 if registered September 1st or later. Registration will close at 2pm on Monday, September 23rd.
