FAQ

The Answers You Need About Recruitment

WHAT IS A RECRUITMENT COUNSELOR?

A Recruitment Counselor is a guide for potential new members. They are disassociated from their chapters to represent the Panhellenic Association and help you sort through the process of Formal Recruitment. Beyond helping you find your new home, your Recruitment Counselor will be there to answer any questions you may have about Greek Life.

WHEN DO RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS OPEN?

Residential Colleges are not opening before recruitment due to COVID-19. Recruitment will be virtual and done from home over Zoom.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

There are four distinct rounds of formal recruitment followed by bid day. The week will start casual and become increasingly formal as the days go on. On the first round of recruitment, you should wear a casual blouse that shows your style. For the next day, Philanthropy Round, you should wear a nice sundress, or a nice top. For invitational round you should wear something a little nicer than a sundress but not quite a cocktail dress. This could be a pant suit, maxi dress or something creative that represents your style. Preference round is the final and dressiest round of recruitment. You should wear a cocktail dress that is tasteful and comfortable.

IS THERE A MINIMUM GPA TO JOIN PANHELLENIC?

To be eligible for Formal Recruitment at the University of Miami, you must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.500 and have completed at least 12 credits at an accredited college or university. GPA's will not be rounded up and thus a 2.499 will still not be considered eligible. If you are a transfer student who will be starting at the University of Miami in the Spring of 2021 you must send a copy of your unofficial transcript to daylewilson@miami.edu and cluna@miami.edu no later than January 6, 2021

DO I NEED A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION?

Letters of recommendation are simply letters of reference written by an alumna of a sorority. They are not required to go through recruitment and many girls do not have them. You will be at no disadvantage if you do not have any letters of recommendation. If you wish to submit a letter of recommendation for a specific sorority, please see the contact information below.

ARE YOU STILL WAITING ON YOUR ACCEPTANCE TO UM?

If you are applying to UM for the spirng semester, and would like to go through the formal recruitment process, still register for recruitment. However, do not pay the recruitment fee until accepted to the university.

WHO CAN I CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION?
