Interested in Joining a Panhellenic Chapter?
All questions regarding Panhellenic formal recruitment can be directed to the Director of Membership, Abby, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The formal recruitment process is the primary method by which Panhellenic sororities acquire new members. The process consists of an orientation night and four rounds of events that allow potential new members the opportunity to learn about each sorority at Virginia Tech.
It is important to recognize that recruitment is a mutual selection process. After each round, you will be asked to release a certain number of sororities, and each sorority will be expected to release a certain number of women. Participation in formal recruitment does not obligate you to join a sorority, nor does it guarantee membership in one.
Each potential new member who registers for formal recruitment will be assigned a recruitment guide (commonly referred to as your ‘Rho Gamma’). These women are returning sorority members who are temporarily disaffiliated form their organizations to help provide unbiased and honest support for you. They will help you understand the specifics of the process and act as your mentor while you make important decisions.
