Panhellenic Council (PHA) Sorority Recruitment

Panhellenic Council (PHA) Sorority Recruitment

The formal recruitment process allows potential members to visit each sorority and to find a group of women that feels like their home away from home. At the end of each round, chapters will select potential members to invite back to their next event and potential members will prioritize their selections as well. This mutual selection process allows for the best fit for both the chapter and the new member.
