How to Join
The primary way women join a Panhellenic sorority is through Fall Primary Recruitment. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person recruitment this Fall. Instead, a fully structured reruitment will be hosted virtually. This process will remain similar to an in-person recruitment, but allows chapters to recruit while remaining physically distant. At the start of recruitment, you are paired with a Recruitment Counselor - a collegiate woman who disassociates from her organization to help potential new members throughout the recruitment process. During Primary Recruitment, you will have the opportunity to narrow down your preferences of sororities each day and so will the chapters, making it a "mutual selection process." Signing up and participating in Primary Recruitment does not obligate you to join a chapter at the end of the week.
Registration for Primary Recruitment 2020 is required along with a $40 registration fee: gtcpc.mycampusdirector2.com.
- Monday, August 10, 2020: Potential New Member Orientation (virtual meeting)
- Thursday, August 13 - Sunday, August 16, 2020: Primary Recruitment Rounds 1-4 (hosted virtually)
Anyone wishing to withdraw after starting the Primary Recruitment process or has been released may elect to sign up for Continuous Open Bidding (COB), which will allow you to potentially pursue options of joining a chapter later in the year through a less structured process.
The opportunity to join 1 of our 8 NPC sororities in the Spring only takes place when an individual chapter falls below 'total' chapter size; which can happen for a variety of reasons. Total is the allowable chapter size as determined by the Collegiate Panhellenic Council, and includes both new and initiated members. The purpose of total is to provide for growth of the CPC community and parity among the chapters, and to allow for the maximun number of women to participate in the sorority experience. The individual chapters hosting recruitment events in the Spring will be responsible for communicating the details out to the campus and potential members. Our 2 associate chapters of CPC, Alpha Delta Chi and Alpha Omega Epsilon recruit in both the Fall and Spring semester through a seperate process.
CPC also oversees two associate member sororities that do not participate in the primary recruitment process: Alpha Delta Chi and Alpha Omega Epsilon. The associate member recruitment process is held after Primary Recruitment in the Fall and during the second week of school in the Spring. Associate Member Recruitment events are hosted by the individual sororities. Women who accept a bid to a chapter in the primary recruitment process are not eligible to participate in Associate Member Recruitment.
