They maintain contact with the women from when they register for recruitment up until Bid Day.

The Recruitment Guide Timeline
Recruitment Guides are selected through an application and interview process which begins after the end of the previous recruitment period. After being selected, Recruitment Guides will take a course during the autumn semester which helps to train, prepare, and educate our Recruitment Guides on the social change model and being a leader in our community. Throughout this time we hold our Recruitment Guides to high expectations as they take on service projects, assist at Sorority & Fraternity Life events, and other major events across The Ohio State University’s community. By the time the Primary Recruitment period approaches Recruitment Guides will have created a sisterhood of their own and are ready to lead Potential New Members through the recruitment process.
