Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment Frequently Asked Questions

Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment is an involved process that does take up quite a bit of time during the 4 days. The only weeknight events will be Bid Day, which will begin around 5 pm and may go late into the evening depending on the chapter's events. Friday and Saturday can be long days and women are encouraged to bring homework with them as they may have short breaks in which they could study. A full schedule of events is available here.
- What is the deadline to register for Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment?
All women interested in participating in Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment must register online by Thursday, August 28, 2014 by 11 pm.
- Is there a minimum GPA requirement to participate in Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment?
Panhellenic Council does not have a minimum GPA to participate in Sorority Formal Recruitment. However each chapter has minimum GPA requirements determined by their national organization that they follow during the recruitment process. Women with lower GPAs are still welcome to participate, but should be aware that their options for membership may be more limited.
- Where do I send letters of recommendation?
Some participants may have relatives or family friends who are current sorority members or alumnae that would like to send a letter of recommendation to the chapter. Recruitment recommendations and introduction letters are not required to participate in Sorority Formal Recruitment, but will be accepted and passed on to the chapters if received prior to the start of recruitment on Friday, September 5, 2014. It will not count against you if you do not have a recommendation, and each chapter will utilize the letters at their own discretion. Recommendation forms can be sent directly to the chapter, or to:
SLU Sorority Formal Recruitment
c/o (insert chapter name)
Busch Student Center 319
20 N. Grand Blvd.

- Is Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment only for freshmen?
No. Any undergraduate woman is welcome to participate in Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment.
- I have changed my mind and no longer want to participate. How can I get a refund?
Should you decide not to participate in Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment prior to the registration deadline on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 11 pm, we can process a refund. In order to receive a refund, you must contact the SLU Recruitment Team at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the registration deadline. No refunds will be given after the registration deadline closes. There is a $2 processing fee, so students requesting refunds would receive a $38 credit back to their account.
- I anticipate having conflicts with one or more of the Panhellenic Sorority Formal Recruitment events. What should I do?
The most important part of Recruitment is being present so that you can meet the chapters and the members can meet you. The more time you have together, the better your chance of finding the right fit. We would encourage you to look at your calendars early, and try to limit conflicts with the recruitment process as much as possible.
Should you have an unavoidable conflict with recruitment due to class or other mandatory commitments, please list that on your registration form and inform your recruitment counselors at your Small Group Meeting on Tuesday night. We will do our best to assist you in working through any excused absences, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to visit all chapters if you will be missing part of Recruitment. Past students have found that missing an entire round can make full participation very difficult. If you are able, please work out your conflicts to be present for at least part of the round.
Examples of excused absences would be: attending a night class, a work commitment, etc. Unexcused absences might include: going to dinner with friends, attending a concert, attending another student organization meeting, etc. Please work with your recruitment counselors to submit your absences.
- What should I include in my profile for registration?
Your profile is your opportunity to introduce yourself to the chapters prior to the start of formal recruitment. Be brief but thorough in describing your past leadership, service and involvement experiences so that they can learn more about you. Make sure to keep your profile looking professional with appropriate capitalization, spelling, grammar, etc. Please do not use ALL CAPS for any of the fields.
- How can I get more information?
You will receive a Go Greek booklet during SLU 101 that will cover many of the basics of Greek Life at SLU. During SLU 101, you can also stop by the Go Greek table during the Resource Fair on Day Two and speak with current Greek students. They can share a lot about their own experiences of being Greek at SLU.
We also encourage you to attend the Panhellenic Recruitment Preview events during Fall Welcome. Many of your questions will be answered during the various information sessions and through mingling with current sorority members. Fraternity and sorority members will also host information tables during the weeks prior to recruitment.
Specific recruitment questions can also be answered via e-mail at email@example.com.
