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 primary recruitment process (sometimes known as “rush”) to join one of the nine, 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, Phi Mu, 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), and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi (Jewish sorority).
- Spring: All Panhellenic chapters eligible to recruit in the spring semester (meaning they have space available) participate in an informal recruitment process.
