Formal Recruitment is January 14th - January 18th!
What is Formal Recruitment?
Formal recruitment is the main process the National Panhellenic Sororities at California State University, Chico use to recruit new members. Formal recruitment occurs during the Spring semester and is a week-long process.
What are the Requirements?
To participate in Formal Recruitment, a woman must be regularly matriculated and enrolled for credit in at least twelve (12) units at CSU Chico (this does not include Extended Studies or Open University). A student must be in good standing and have a Cumulative College GPA of a 2.5 or higher. A student also must be at least a second semester freshman to participate.
What Exactly is the Recruitment Process?
Panhellenic recruitment is a mutual selection process. During the first round, potential new members visit all 6 of the Panhellenic sororities. After each round, the potential new members rank the chapters in which they are most interested, and the chapters submit lists of women whom they'd like to invite back to the next round.
Who Will Be There When I Need Help?
At the beginning of the recruitment process, you will be assigned a Recruitment Counselor. The Recruitment Counselor is a member of one of the six sororities on campus, but for the duration of recruitment she has promised not to reveal her sorority affiliation in order to give you unbiased counsel as well as to reduce the pressure on you to join her chapter. We realize that it is tempting to know what your Recruitment Counselor's affiliation is, but please do not try to find this information out. If you know her affiliation, do not tell others. Her affiliation will be revealed at the end of recruitment. Your Recruitment Counselor has sworn to keep all information you tell her confidential and you should feel free to ask her any questions you have. She is available to you at all times and is not only a valuable resource, but a comforting listener.
Due to COVID-19, our recruitment will be mostly virtual. Sign up here using Wildcat Sync to receive updates regarding this Spring's recruitment!
