Sorority Recruitment Support, Recommendations, Membership Information Forms
We’re delighted you are thinking about going through sorority recruitment. Recruitment is a mutual selection process during a defined period of time and is organized by the Collegiate Panhellenics. Here are some suggestions to make your process as easy as possible.
Go to your University's website and put "Greek Life" in the search bar. It will take you into the area you need and with a little research you will find sorority recruitment. It will have dates, registration, fees and other information you need listed there.
You will hear about recommendations. A recommendation does not guarantee a place in any group. Rather it is a pre-introduction of you to the Greek system. Recommendations are best when they come from a personal friend, family member, educator, clergy or someone who knows you that is Greek. Should you find you do not know someone from one of the NPC groups chartered at the school you will be attending, then please contact SCCAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide the following:
Your full name, physical address, email address, best phone number to contact you;
Your intended school, the NPC groups present at that school and which groups you need assistance with;
Your personal resume that includes:
Academic information - school information, honors, involvement, recognition, scholarships;
Academic statistics (i.e.: un-weighted GPA and college admission test scores);
Accomplishments - Community involvement, organizations, leadership positions;
Local references - used by each sorority to obtain personal information;
An individual photo of yourself - pdf or jpeg preferred, a pdf of grades and/or photo, and any other pertinent information.
Your inquiry will be sent to the area Alumnae Panhellenics. Please remember you are asking a favor. You may or may not receive an email or phone call from one of the alumna willing to consider writing a recommendation for you. Please respond quickly and do not wait until just prior to any deadline date.
We ask if you would please let us know after you have gone through recruitment what your experience has been, if you have gone Greek, and if not, anything you would care to share with us.
Sorority Life can be a wonderful experience. Please remember it is your experience, and not your friends, your mother's or anyone else's. Your choice should be yours and reflect the unique campus, organizations and people you experience. Always remember it is a mutual selection process and you are interviewing people and groups as much as they are you.
Southern California Alumnae Panhellenic websites
Since 1908, the name “National Panhellenic Conference” (Panhellenic=All Greek) was adopted by a number of national sororities to designate their cooperative organization. There are presently (26) national sororities who are members of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) in the United States and Canada. Where there are national sororities on a college/university campus, their collaborative organization is also called a Collegiate Panhellenic.
As a member of NPC, the Southern California Council of Alumnae Panhellenics strives to assist all potential Southern California sorority members in experiencing the best recruitment possible; and enable the maximum number of girls to become sorority members. This can be achieved by familiarizing potential new members with the recruitment process and the benefits of local area alumnae panhellenic involvement. These Panhellenics are volunteer organizations of sorority alumnae who focus on scholarships and assistance to their area colleges and universities.
Note: The Panhellenic contact process does not guarantee you will receive a reference or recommendation, or be extended an invitation to membership.
Below are a variety of websites for further assistance. Please consider viewing them.
Have a wonderful recruitment experience.
