MEET THE CHAPTERS
The Primary Recruitment Process takes place during the first two weekends of Spring Semester. Is consists of four rounds that highlight what the Panhellenic Association was founded on and allows every person going through the process to learn about each chapter. At the end of the two weeks, through the mutual selection process, participants will have opportunity to be given their bid on Bid Day and then celebrate with the chapter that they just joined.
To make this process less stressful, Potential New Members will be placed in a group and given at least two Recruitment Guides to assist you through the process. These guides meant to serve as a role model, friend, and resource to support a successful formal recruitment experience. Potential New Members will be assigned a Recruitment Group within 2 weeks after they register for Primary Recruitment
