Spring recruitment formats vary depending on the type of sorority within the Panhellenic Council a student would like to join.
NPC Formal Recruitment takes place over two-weekends. This mutual selection format is an opportunity for students to meet sorority members from each NPC sorority, ask questions, learn about financial obligations, time commitments, and membership requirements. Participation in this particular recruitment format is limited to the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) member organizations of our Council. Organizations participating in this formal recruitment process are:
Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Gamma Delta
Gamma Phi Beta
Phi Sigma Sigma
Sigma Delta Tau
Zeta Tau Alpha
Non-NPC member sororities within the Panhellenic Council recruit in the spring holding events similar to those they held in the fall. Recruitment will kick off in late January and end with invitations to join in early February. Meet the Sister events and other Information Sessions will be held in student centers and academic buildings on campus. Events allow interested students to ask questions, learn about financial obligations, time commitments, and membership requirements. This process does not require students to visit with all of the participating organizations. Participating sororities are:
Alpha Omega Epsilon (composed of engineering and technical science students)
Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority
Phi Sigma Rho National Engineering Sorority

2021 Information Guide
Our Guide will be sent to women after we confirm their registration for formal recruitment, but you can find Financial Transparency Information posted on each chapter’s page on our site. Be sure to review that important information with your parents/family so that you can ensure you can meet a sorority’s financial obligations (dues, fees, housing requirements, etc.) should you join.
If you are interested in learning more about our community, be sure to review the 2020 Guidebook. Remember, the info will be updated for our spring 2021 recruitment but this should give you preliminary information.
