Formal Sorority Recruitment
Typically taking place the week before the semester starts, primary recruitment is your chance to meet all 13 National Panhellenic Conference chapters registered with Kansas State University. This process consists of four rounds - open house, philanthropy & service, sisterhood & house tours, and preference. You meet sorority women in each chapter, have values-based conversations and ask any questions that you may have about activities, financial obligations, scholarship, new member programs and campus life. At the end of each round, you will priority rank the chapters you would like to learn most about. Likewise, chapters invite back the women they believe will be a good fit for their chapter. Following recruitment, you will attend a Bid Day celebration, where you receive your official invitation to join just one of the NPC sororities.
Registration for Fall Formal Recruitment opens on May 1st, 2023 and will be open until August 1st, 2023.

What is the Guide to Recruitment?
The Guide to Recruitment is a comprehensive resource used by Potential New Members and parents to learn more about the recruitment process at Kansas State. When recruitment registration opens on May 1st, the updated Guide is published. View the 2022 Guide to Recruitment below for insight into what to expect in 2023. Our structure does not fluctuate greatly year to year. Information found in the 2022 Guide to Recruitment should hold true through 2023 baring any changes to University requirements, KSU New Student Orientation, or Riley County Health Department guidelines.
Approximately 400 women join our sorority community through the formal recruitment process which takes place the week before school starts each Fall.
Potential New Members move into their dorms early and take part in this guided process, accompanied by Recruitment Guides.
Recruitment Guides are sorority upperclassmen who have been selected to disaffiliate from their chapter for the week in order to be unbiased and assist PNMs through the week.
