Panhellenic Council Recruitment

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of 14 sororities on campus and plans the formal recruitment process. Twelve of the 14 sororities participate in fall formal recruitment.

Sigma Alpha and Sigma Lambda Gamma conduct their own respective recruitment processes. The Panhellenic Executive Council and the Greek Recruitment Counselors (Gamma Chis) compose the recruitment team.

PHC Informal Recruitment Process

The Panhellenic Council works with the National Panhellenic Conference to set chapter total once the formal recruitment process is finished.  Once chapter total is set, only those sororities whose total membership number is less than the chapter total number may participate in informal recruitment, or Continuous Open Bidding (COB).  

Panhellenic will not know which sororities are eligible until August 25th upon the conclusion of the formal process.  Eligible chapters will then reach out to potential members on their own; Panhellenic does not facilitate this process.
