Sorority recruitment is a unique experience that brings excitement, nerves, and possibilities. The enigma of sorority life will be revealed to you soon enough as our chapters get ready to welcome you into their homes. Here are a few things you should know before bid day.
First, if you are on the fence about signing up for recruitment, I would highly encourage you to do it. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain. You will regret not giving it a chance.
Second, get to know your Recruitment Counselor! She has given up her letters to help you find yours, and she wants to get to know you and help you through the process. She is there to answer all of your questions, get you excited, and calm your nerves as recruitment nears. She has been through this before and can relate to all of your emotions and experiences.
Third, spend time with your recruitment group. Some of them might end up being your sisters! If they do not run home with you, they will still be your Pan pals. Fostering relationships with women in other sororities is a vital part of a well-rounded Greek life experience.
Lastly, trust the process. It sounds cliche, but you will end up exactly where you need to be. Make sure you keep an open mind and give every organization a fair chance because you never know what kind of experience and love is waiting for you on the other side. Do not give up on recruitment halfway through the weekend; see it through to see all the excitement of bid day.
I wish you all the best and cannot wait to meet you!
