Formal Recruitment

Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process that introduces potential new members to the sorority community. Held over the first weekends of the Fall Semester, potential new members meet women from the chapters and learn about each organization. Chapters share information about their philanthropies, community service events, leadership opportunities, and academic and personal development programs.   

Registration for Formal Recruitment 2017 is now closed. 

Mark your calendars, here is a list of required events for those that would like to participate in the formal recruitment process.
