Round 1: Values
There are 16 Panhellenic sororities participating in each round of formal recruitment at the beginning of the Spring semester. During round one, you will visit each of the 16 sororities for 25 minutes at a time. These 16 parties will be spread over two days, so you will visit eight chapters one day and the next eight chapters the other day.
Round 2: Philanthropy
This round allows you to visit up to 12 sororities for 30 minutes each to learn about the philanthropy and other community service projects we participate in throughout the school year.
Round 3: Sisterhood
During round three you may visit up to seven sororities for 40 minutes each. The fun atmosphere during this round of recruitment makes it a favorite for both potential new members and sorority women. This round will give you a closer look at the sisterhood of each chapter, as members will share stories about their personal experiences being involved in Greek Life.
Round 4: Preference
Preference gives you the opportunity to visit up to two sororities for an hour each. This round of recruitment is the most special. Generally, you will be hosted by a member of the sorority whom you have already met and might have gotten along with especially well. This is the most formal round.
Round 5: Bid Day
Bid Day is the last day of the recruitment period. This is the day that invitations to join sororities are extended. Your Rho Gamma will inform you of the time and place to meet and receive your invitation. After a small Bid Day celebration with your Rho Gamma and group, you will meet your new member class and sorority sisters. You will go to your sorority's house with your new member class, where everyone will welcome you. There are usually activities planned for you to get acquainted with your new sisters.
