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 Buildings open 1/7/19 at 5 PM. You will not be able to enter the building before 5 PM so please plan accordingly! You will also meet up with your Recruitment Counselor that day at 8 PM to talk about the process and meet everyone in your group.

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 will be provided a shirt by the Panhellenic Association. You should wear casual bottoms like shorts or jeans that show your style with sandals or flats. You will be on your feet for most of the day and should not wear heels, booties or wedges. For the next day, Philanthropy Round, you should wear a nice sundress, skirt or jeans with a nice top. You can wear wedges, flats or sandals. 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 skirt or something creative that represents your style. Jeans are not appropriate on this day. You can wear wedges or heels on this day but if you are more comfortable with sandals or flats that is fine. Preference round is the final and dressiest round of recruitment. You should wear a cocktail dress with heels that is tasteful and comfortable. And finally, bid day! You should bring a sweatshirt, sweater or baggy t-shirt to wear over your bid day shirt for your chapter! You can wear shorts or jeans as bottoms on this day. We also recommend that you wear a solid color bra or sports bra because each chapters shirt is a different style and cut.
