The Panhellenic Association consists of chapters commonly committed to providing a rewarding membership experience. Because of the variety in types of organizations in our community, there are several ways potential members can join a Panhellenic sorority:
- Fall Semester: Potential members can opt to go through the formal recruitment process (sometimes known as “rush”) to join one of the eight, large sororities on campus with houses. These organizations include: Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, and Zeta Tau Alpha. Potential members can also go through a fall informal recruitment process hosted by associate chapters. These chapters are interest-specific and host recruitment events independent of any formalized recruitment process. The associate chapters participating in fall informal recruitment are: Alpha Delta Chi (Christian sorority), Alpha Sigma Kappa (women in technical studies/STEM sorority), Sigma Alpha (professional agriculture sorority), Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi (Jewish sorority), and Sigma Alpha Iota (music interest sorority). A special opportunity to start a new Panhellenic Sorority also exists in fall 2018 when Phi Mu will start a brand new sorority on CSU’s campus. Students joining this new sorority in fall 2018 will be considered “charter members.”
- Spring: All Panhellenic chapters eligible to recruit in the spring semester (meaning they have space available) participate in an informal recruitment process.
