Greek Life: Signing On & Signing Up For Recruitment

For those women who are thinking about/planning on going Greek this autumn, Formal Recruitment is three to four months away (or five, depending on where you’re going to college).   Between now & then, here are some things to keep in mind so you can make a favorable & lasting positive impression with the actives well before Recruitment Week even begins:

First of all, get signed up for Sorority Recruitment on your colleges’/universities’ Panhellenic websites!!  If you’ve done so already, I’m wishing you all the best & good luck during the recruiting process.  If not, make sure to get registered in advance – don’t stall for time.

Second, make sure to check out your colleges’/universities’ Formal Recruitment registration requirements & deadlines.  The sooner you can get these things done, the better off you’ll be once Formal Recruitment officially starts.

Third, if you’ve got your recommendation letters ready to go, make sure to include appropriate pictures of yourselves along with your addresses & envelopes.  That’ll make the actives’ job of identifying you much easier during your conversations with them; in addition, they’ll get to know you much better in the process.

Fourth, make sure to turn in your grade transcripts!!   Your grades are one crucial piece of information which will determine if you’re eligible for Sorority Recruitment or not.

Fifth, once you’ve registered for Sorority Recruitment, you’ll get the following items:  information about the recruiting process, what to expect for the duration of Formal Recruitment, as well as relevant information about each Sorority/women’s Fraternity at the colleges/universities you’re going to attend.  So take time to read through the wealth of material which your colleges’/universities’ Panhellenic Councils/Associations/Offices of Greek Life are going to send you!!

Sixth, there are plenty of potential new members who will be excited about Formal Recruitment.  At the same time, those same women will also be anxious as well.  So if you have any pressing questions/concerns about Formal Recruitment or if you’re anxious about certain aspects of the recruiting process, address any issues you may have by emailing your colleges’/universities’ Panhellenic Councils/Associations or Offices of Greek Life – they won’t hesitate to answer any questions which you may have about Recruitment in general.

Seventh, Formal Recruitment can be more-than-amazing.  But it can also be stressful & nerve-wracking for actives & potential new members alike.  So to ensure that your recruitment experiences are memorable, inspiring & awesome, go into Formal Recruitment with open minds, open hearts & open views about each of the chapters which you’ll be visiting.

Last but not least, follow your hearts!! If you want to join a Sorority/women’s Fraternity, the choice is all yours!!  So make your decisions mindfully, with care & for all the right reasons!!

Sign on.  Sign up.  Follow your hearts.  Get registered for Formal Recruitment.  Go Greek!!

Before You Think About Going Greek…

For plenty of you high school seniors out there, going Greek may be the furthest thing from your minds right now.  You’ve got a month or so before you graduate; three months or so later, you’ll be on your way to college.  Between now & then, you’ll have plenty to think about.  At the same time, if you’re really interested in joining a Greek organization on campus, you’ll also want to ask yourself,  “Is Greek life really for me?”  “Is Greek life something that will enrich my life in the future?”  “What will I gain if I join a sorority/fraternity?”

Before you consider taking that next step into all things Greek & before you finally decide to join a Greek organization on campus, here are some things worth keeping in mind:

First of all, there is no “right”/”wrong” sorority/fraternity to join!!  You’ll find a sorority/fraternity where you can truly feel comfortable, right at home & be accepted just the way you are.  (In other words, you’ll find a Greek organization where you can say out loud, “I truly belong here!!”)

Second, going Greek is about following your heart.  Finding an organization which is the perfect fit for you won’t be easy, but it’ll be worthwhile once you’ve reached a final decision & found a sorority/fraternity which you can call home.

Third, see for yourself if Greek life is truly right for you!!  Visit each chapter during Recruitment Week & see what you think.  If you want to go Greek, go ahead.  If not, that’s your prerogative – as well as take some positives from your recruiting experience.

Fourth, not every organization on campus is alike.  Honestly, each sorority/fraternity that you’re going to visit during Recruitment is going to be amazing in its own way & on its own terms.

Fifth, do your homework/research about each sorority/fraternity at the colleges/universities which you’ll be attending.  Assess each chapter’s pros & cons as well as their strengths & weaknesses.  In addition, assess where each chapter truly shines/the little things about certain chapters which just don’t click with you.  (e.g.  How seriously does each chapter take academics, philanthropy, community service, leadership opportunities & providing its members with a well-rounded, authentic experience of sisterhood/brotherhood/friendship?)

Sixth, the choice is yours if you want to go Greek or not.  So follow your heart & make a decision to join a sorority/fraternity with plenty of care/forethought!!

Last but not least, go Greek for all the right reasons!!  Do you like volunteering?  Go Greek.  Do you love philanthropy & community service?  Go Greek.  Do you love participating in various leadership opportunities?  Go Greek.  Do you want to get involved on campus & in the local community?  Go Greek.  Do you love participating in intramural sports? Go Greek.  Do you believe in making a positive difference in the lives of others around you?  Go Greek.  Do you believe in achieving your personal best academically?  Go Greek.  Do you enjoy all of the above?  Go Greek, because you’ll gain a plethora of valuable opportunities to do all of these things & much more!!
