Recruitment season is here.
With this time comes joy, nerves, excitement and lots of glitter. The world of sororities will not be a mystery to you for much longer, because bid day will be here before you know it. Before bid day, it’s important that you know a few things.
First, if you’re on the fence about recruitment, just sign up. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you never try it, you will never know what you’re missing either.
Second, get to know your Recruitment Counselor! She has given up her own letters so that she can help you through this process. She wants to hear all about how excited you are for recruitment, answer all your questions and help calm your nerves! She’s been through this exact thing too and can relate to every emotion you experience along this journey.
Third, spend time with your recruitment group. Some of them will be your sisters! And if they don’t run home with you, they will still be your Pan pals. Having Panhellenic friends is a vital part of Greek life.
Lastly, trust this process. You’ll end up exactly where you need to be. Don’t give up on recruitment halfway in to the weekend; see it through and give every organization a fair chance. It’s never been more important that you have an open mind. You never know what kind of hidden blessing is waiting for you.
I wish you all the best and can’t wait to meet you.
