Sorority Recruitment

Sorority Formal Recruitment is hosted by the Panhellenic Council and is a great way to meet women from all three National Panhellenic Conference chapters on campus. Formal recruitment is an excellent way to begin building your new network of college friends and to explore all the sorority life has to offer at UW-Eau Claire.

Formal Recruitment is conducted through means of a mutual selection process. At the end of the second round of events, recruitment guests will priority rank in order the chapters they would most like to see again. Likewise, the chapters issue invitations back to the recruitment guests they most wish to see again. Immediately following the last preference party, preference card signing will be explained to all recruitment guests.

Sorority Formal Recruitment

Formal recruitment includes pre-recruitment events and regular recruitment rounds.
Pre-recruitment events are opportunities to speak with current sorority women and get any questions answered about Greek Life. Recruitment rounds allow registered women to spend time with each chapter to help them determine which chapter is the best fit for them.

Every woman interested in attending Formal Recruitment is required to register,
online, prior to the first round.

Recruitment Counselors

Recruitment counselors are women that disaffiliate themselves from their own chapters for the recruitment process in order to help interested women.  They are unbiased supporters that are here for the potential new members throughout the entire process.  Women participating in formal sorority recruitment should feel free to ask these women anything, since their role is to help them find an answer. They are ready and willing to help and want any woman interested in joining a sorority to find the perfect fit for them.  Get to know the 2018 Recruitment Team below!
