Recruitment

Your roadmap to joining a sorority

Learn about Recruitment Style- there are two different types of recruitment at RIT. Formal recruitment is a structured format that allows you to get know each chapter on campus. Informal recruitment is a less structured and a self-guided format that allows you to attend chapter events of your choice.

Formal RecruitmentFormal recruitment will be coming to RIT in Fall Semester from Semptember 11 - 15, 2014! If you are interested in registering for this process, please visit ICS Recruiter Enrollment. Using this Website, you will register for formal recruitment and provide some information.   If you have any questions about this process, feel free to email vprecruitment.cpc.rit@gmail.com or asst.vprecruitment.cpc.rit@gmail.com

Informal Recruitment- Keep an eye out for chapter sponsored recruitment events on campus and online. Event information will also be posted on the Panhellenic Website. Feel free to attend as many events as you wish. If you are interested in a particular chapter continue to attend their events and make your interest clear.

Bid Night- CONGRATULATIONS! You have received a bid, which means you have been invited to join a sorority on campus! Hopefully, if you feel that this chapter is the best fit for you, you should accept the bid. (This is your final decision and all signed bids are effective for one year, which means if you decided on a different chapter you will have to wait one whole year to sign another bid.) If you don’t feel this chapter is your best fit you can respectfully decline.

Bid Signing- During informal recruitment, within 24 hours of receiving your bid you will be instructed to sign your bid at a designated location on campus. During formal recruitment, your recruitment guides will have helped you complete this process.

Tips For Recruitment Success For Potential New Members (PNM’s):

  • Be yourself
  • Have genuine and honest conversations
  • Spend time really getting to know the members as individuals. See who you connect with
  • Expose yourself to the chapter experience
  • Look for the group where you feel most comfortable
  • Keep an open mind
  • Trust the process
  • Have fun!
  • Show up to each event energized and ready to face any challenge that comes your way
  • Carry on positive conversations that highlight the qualities that make you a great fit for the specific sorority
  • Wear clothes that you are comfortable in. Don't try to be someone you are not just for recruitment. If you are not comfortable in an outfit, don't wear it. You may tend to be shyer or not as talkative if you are in something you do not feel good about wearing.
  • If you came with a friend, try not to become too attached. You may end up fitting better within different sororities, but that doesn’t mean you can’t remain close. Do what’s best for you!
