Potential Member Bill of Rights
During First Round Events you will visit all nine sororities. You will get 25 minutes at each sorority while in Greek Court. You will meet a variety of women from each chapter including the sorority chapter President and the Recruitment Chairperson. You will meet so many people and will have so much to talk about that before you know it you will be saying good-bye.
At this time you may return to seven sorority chapters for Second Round events that will last for 30 minutes each.
At this time you may return to five sorority chapters for 45 minutes each. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The sororities are glad to see that you are interested in their chapter and will be happy to answer your questions. During this round, you may get the opportunity to learn more about the organization's philanthropy.
The last day of recruitment is called Preference. At Preference you may return to up to two chapters for 60 minutes each. This will be a very special day for you. The sorority will discuss what sorority membership means to them and what it could be like for you.
Bid Day is the final day of Recruitment and the day you will receive a bid to join an individual sorority. You will meet with your recruitment counselor, join in an All-Panhellenic Celebration, and walk to Greek Court with your new member class!
All potential members are required to have a 2.50 cumulative GPA in order to participate in formal recruitment. As an initiated member, to remain in good standing with Panhellenic Council you must maintain a 2.50 cumulative GPA.
Each chapter's semester dues vary. Dues range from $300-$500 per semester. The cost to live in the chapter house is established by the University. It is the same price as the residence halls. While you visit the chapters during Open House, it may be a good idea to ask about cost while you are there.
