You're ready to take the next step, ready to plant your roots. Whether it's learning more about the sorority community or registering for recruitment, we've got you covered.
Sorority Video Library
Want to know more about the outstanding sorority community? What are the benefits you gain from joining sorority life?
What does membership entail? What do finances and facilities look like?
What does recruitment look like? What do I need to know about each round?
We have big news for you! Panhellenic Council is happy to announce our new recruitment dates - August 21-23 & 26-28.
Prior to August: Convocation & Education
You will have access to a few different resources that walk you through what to expect, introduce you to Panhellenic and the recruitment guides, explain the process, and more! These modules should take no more than 1 hour.
August 1-19: Virtual Round 1 - Open House
You will view chapter videos, where you will be introduced to all 13 sororities. These videos will be no longer than 5 minutes long, and the entire unit should take no more than 90 minutes.
You also have the option to upload an introduction video to your profile. More on that in next week's email!
August 19: Recruitment Group Meeting
This post-dinner meeting will allow you to meet in small groups outside, to discuss the first weekend of recruitment, get to know other potential new members, and ask questions.
August 22: Virtual Conversation Round 2 - Philanthropy & Service
You will receive your personalized schedule Saturday morning before events begin. Saturday evening you will enter your priorities for Sunday. You may visit up to 10 sororities.
August 23: In-Person Round 3 - Sisterhood & House Tours
Sunday morning you will receive your personalized schedule. You will be able to see up to 6 sororities, but again, there are 10 event times to ensure small event sizes that will allow for social distancing. You will enter your priorities Sunday night.
August 26 & 27: In-Person Preference Round
Multiple events will be held on Wednesday and Thursday nights, and you will have one or two chapters to visit. We will of course work with any woman who has a Wednesday or Thursday night class (this will be an added question within your profile - more on that next week!).
August 28: Bid Day
Friday evening, you will receive your bid telling you which sorority you are now a new member of. We hope to finalize details for this day in July, as we work with local health officials and K-State to ensure safety for our new members and chapter members.
HEALTH & SAFETY
We are in communication with local health officials and will follow all federal, state, and local guidance as it relates to health and safety. At this point, please plan on wearing a mask throughout recruitment activities, congregating in groups of less than 50, and social distancing before & during recruitment activities. Note: There may be necessary changes made to the format as we get closer to August, but our overall schedule will stay the same.
I’m immunocompromised – is there a recruitment opportunity for me?
Absolutely. We are still working on creating potential virtual opportunities for those who are unable to be around larger groups of people this fall. More information will be available this summer.
What if I’m not sure about recruitment or coming to K-State yet?
No worries! Our registration will be open until the day before recruitment begins. You can wait until dates and details are finalized before registering on our website.
