How Does Recruitment Work?

Primary recruitment is a four round process (each round may range from one to two days) in which PNMs learn about each chapter on campus. Round One is house tours. Round Two is Philanthropy. Round Three is Sisterhood. Round Four is Preference.

Through the process of mutual selection, you will find the sisterhood best fit for you.

What Should I Talk About During Recruitment?

Be yourself and let the sisters you meet know your true colors!

Talk about your interests, accomplishments, and goals/future plans so the women you talk with can get a better understanding of who you are and what you may bring to the sisterhood.
