03-12-2015: 2015 Call Log & FAQ
As we enter in to the time of the year when women and parents are researching information about our community and the recruitment process we begin to field MANY calls and emails. This resource will hopefully be able to guide you through some of our most popular questions, concerns and clarifications.
Calls & Emails:
Although Panhellenic does not require a specific grade point average to participate in Recruitment. Each of the women's chapters has a minimum grade point average used as a guideline for membership. These start at a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for both high school and college students.
All students entering with a GPA lower than 2.75 will receive a phone call confirming that you understand that anyone with a grade point average below the minimum or much lower than the average, has extremely low chances of receiving invitations.
If you you choose to still participate in recruitment and have a specific concern you would like to address with the organizations concerning your academic standing, we encourage you to discuss it during Period I events with the chapter member(s) you meet.
Any and all questions pertaining to Academic Standing can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, please note that we will not release the chapter specific grade requirements at anytime.

02-01-2014: Do's & Don'ts of Recruitment
ATTEND ALL RHO GAMMA MEETINGS as they contain important information.
ATTEND ALL EVENTS you are invited to each day. Any unexcused absence will cause you to be removed from the Recruitment process.
WEAR YOUR NAMETAG at all times when attending Recruitment events. Replacement nametags are available.
INFORM YOUR RHO GAMMA AND/OR PANHELLENIC if an emergency arises. Contact your Community Advisor if you are in a Residence Hall.
REPORT ANY SCHEDULE CONFLICTS to Panhellenic in advance of an anticipated absence.
USE THE PROVIDED PORT-A-POTTIES during breaks. Restrooms located in break lodges are not to be used by anyone affiliated with sorority recruitment.
ASK QUESTIONS. Make sure to ask questions when you do not understand. Rho Gammas and Panhellenic are happy to help you through the process.
BE POLITE AND RESPECTFUL when attending events.
INFORM PANHELLENIC if you choose not to join a group. We ask that you withdraw from the process in writing.
BE HONEST. Tell the sororities about your interests, hobbies, or accomplishments. The sorority members are excited about meeting you and getting to know you.
DON’T STAY GLUED TO YOUR CELL PHONE. You will be busy enough making new friends and moving from event to event.
DON’T BE LATE! We will do our best to keep to a strict schedule, please do the same.
DON’T GO IN WITH YOUR HEART SET on one sorority. Keep an open mind! You may not be familiar with all the sororities, so take time to consider membership in each group. Every sorority offers something unique. Also consider that being a legacy of a group does not ensure membership in that group.
DON’T PARTICIPATE IN EVENTS AFTER RECRUITMENT that include men and/or alcohol.
DON’T COMMUNICATE with current or alumnae sorority members. Strict silence is in effect and they should not pressure or influence you during this time (this includes emails, text messages and all social media outlets).
DON’T TALK ABOUT OTHER HOUSES. You never know who has friends where.
DON’T ACCEPT gifts, letters, flowers or meals from current or alumnae sorority members.
DON’T ALLOW current or alumnae sorority members imply or promise a bid to membership. This practice is invalid, illegal, and forbidden during Formal Recruitment.
DON’T SHARE a home or apartment with a current sorority member during Formal Recruitment Week.
