Recruitment Tips

  • be open minded and don't let any pre-conceived ideas influence your perceptions of each sorority or affect the decisions you make

 

  • be authentic. the chapters want to see the real you, not someone you think you need to be

 

  • look at the sorority as a whole, don't judge the entire chapter on one woman

 

  • even if you don't think you want to be in a specific sorority, still stay engaged in the conversations because you may end up making a genuine connection

 

  • ask questions! it shows that you're engaged and keeps the conversation running smoothly

 

  • take notes after each party so you can remember what you liked and didn't like

  • make friends with the women in your recruitment group! whether they become your sister or not, they could become a lifelong friend

  • remember to make decisions based on your experiences, not those of anyone else

  • don't interpret any remark as a guarantee of receiving a bid

  • recruitment is a long process, so get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and don't forget to eat

  • trust the process! everything happens for a reason and you're going to end up where you're meant to be!
