Panhellenic Formal Recruitment Registration
HOW FORMAL RECRUITMENT WORKS
Each spring, the College Panhellenic Council hosts Formal Recruitment. This is a mutual selection proces where Potential New Members (PNMs) have the opportunity to be introduced to each of our six (6) National Panhellenic Conference member sororities:
- Delta Delta Delta
- Delta Phi Epsilon
- Delta Zeta
- Sigma Delta Tau
- Sigma Sigma Sigma
- Zeta Tau Alpha
During the first round, the Potential New Member will meet with all six (6) NPC women's organizations. Following the round, the Potential New Member narrows down their top choice organizations to four (4). Simultaneously, the chapters will rank each Potential New Member they met. Using this mutual selection process, the Potential New Member is invited to up to four (4) sororities the next round.
Following Round Two, the same process occurs and the Potential New Members selects their top 2 chapters.For Round Three, referred to as the Preference round, Potential New Members will be invited to up to 2 chapters.
Following the Preference round, Potential New Members may sign the Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement (MRABA). If a Potential New Member signs the MRABA, they are agreeing to accept a bid from either of the up to two chapters they include on the agreement. If a Potential New Member chooses not to sign the MRABA, they will not recieve a bid in the Formal Recruitment process. If a Potential New Member signs the MRABA, but then declines a bid or later drops out of the sorority, she is not permitted to join another sorority for one calendar year.
Bid Day is the final day. Potential new members may or may not recieve a bid, and can only recieve a bid to one (1) chapter.
