Schedule for Fall Recruitment:
August 30: Sorority Preview Day and Panhellenic Recruitment Orientation
The Panhellenic Recruitment Team, along with the Panhellenic sorority community, will be hosting a Sorority Preview Day that will allow Potential New Members to visit each chapter house with their Recruitment Counselor to learn more about the chapter prior to chapters hosting Open House events. Chapters will be discussing a variety of topics, along with showing their hard work on their recruitment video.
Prior to the start of the Sorority Preview Day the Panhellenic Recruitment Team will be hosting a Recruitment Orientation to all potential new members who have registered for Fall 2020 Fall Recruitment. During this orientation you will hopefully get all your questions answered concerning the recruitment process! The Panhellenic Recruitment Orientation is not mandatory to attend, however, the Panhellenic Recruitment Team does encourage all potential new members to attend.
August 31 - September 12: Open House events
Starting on Monday, August 31, 2020, through Saturday, September 12, 2020 chapters will begin to host Open House events for potential new members to visit and learn more about the chapter they wish to join. Chapters will be discussing rules and regulations of their organizations, their Philanthropic causes, and their community services events, along with what their Sisterhood is about and the values the chapter holds.
Chapters will also be hosting a formal/preference style event that will more than likely be invitation only and will go more in-depth about their chapter through a small ceremony. We encourage chapters to make sure they communicate which date and event this will be so that potential new members will be in proper attire and aware of the ceremonial event.
Chapters will not be hosting Open House events during the Labor Day weekend. These dates are Friday, September 4 - Monday, September 7.
September 13: Bid Day
Bid Day is the final event of Recruitment and the day you will receive a bid to join an individual sorority. You will discover what chapter your recruitment counselor is a member of, join in an All-Panhellenic Celebration, and attend a Bid Day celebration with your new chapter!
