All questions regarding Panhellenic formal recruitment can be directed to the Vice President of Membership, Michaela, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Formal Recruitment Overview
The formal recruitment process is the primary method by which Panhellenic sororities acquire new members. It will begin on a date to be determined. 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.
Formal recruitment will be held January 14-20, 2019. Registration for Formal Recruitment opens October 1 at 8am and is $115. On November 16, the price will go up to $125. The last day to register will be November 30 at 11:59pm. Further details along with instructions on how to sign up will be up soon. You can find us at Gobblerfest with more information once the school year begins. We understand that making the decision to go through recruitment could be a tough one, so we encourage that you come out & talk to us there or email Michaela if you have any questions about anything at all!
