2021 Recruitment Schedule
Below you will find descriptions of each round of recruitment as well as examples of what to wear. We'd love to extend a special thank you to Sabi Boutique for dressing our CPC Executive Board!
2021 Primary Recruitment will be August 21st, 2021 through August 29th, 2021
Taking into account the number of COVID-19 cases in the state of Texas, the Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC) has decided to hold the recruitment process both in-person and virtually. For the Fall 2021 Formal Recruitment cycle, the Go Greek and Philanthropy rounds will be held virtually and Sisterhood, Preference, and Bid Day will be held in-person.
Further details can be seen on the 2021 Recruitment Guide and PNM Orientation.
PNM Convocation will be held virtually. Please note that attendance will be taken. PNMs will listen to a keynote speaker and break into their Rho Gammas afterwards.
Parent Convocation will be held virtually. Parents will listen to the Panhellenic Interim Advisor, the Panhellenic President, and a Panhellenic parent. The presentation will be followed with a Q&A.
Here is the recording of Convocation (8/21): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FWlO4RVEi9d8VIsgGuWZ5BfcYeqd4wmQ/view.
Round 1: Go Greek
For this round, PNMs will submit 1 minute videos prior to August 15th for chapters to watch. PNMs will have a 24-hour window to watch 14 five-minute chapter videos. PNMs must watch all videos offered via LaunchPoint Modules before submitting their preferences. Further instructions and guidelines will be provided to PNMs in the PNM Orientation modules.
PNMs are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, such as a basic shirt. This is can be worn with appropriate shorts and skirts, paired with sandals or flats. Feel free to accessorize in any way you see fit.
Round 2: Philanthropy
During this round, PNMs will attend 30 minute events with 15 minute breaks between each event. Financial obligations will be discussed in this round.
For Philanthropy Round, you are encouraged to wear a light sundress dress or romper with sandals, or flats. Philanthropy Round is casual, so stick with more casual dresses that you would wear to a brunch with friends!
Round 3: Sisterhood
For Sisterhood, each event will be 45 minutes, with 15 minute breaks between events.
On the Sisterhood Round, it is recommended that you wear nicer dresses than Philanthropy Round. It is a little bit dresser than the previous round with heels, wedges or sandals and some nicer accessories. This round is typically described as wedding or "Sunday Best" attire.
Round 4: Preference Night
Events will be 45 minutes, with 15 minute breaks in between all events.
This round is typically described as semi-formal attire. Preference Night attire is the most formal and dressed up day. You are encouraged to wear a nice, appropriate cocktail dress with heels.
Women will receive invitations to membership and spend the evening getting to know their new sisters.
If you have a university excused scheduling conflict with any Recruitment events, please contact the Panhellenic VP of Recruitment at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate excused absences. However, make up opportunities may not be offered.
Tips from Panhellenic
It is important to remember that each chapter wants you to feel comfortable and confident in what you are wearing!
Chapters do not score you based purely on what you are wearing, so take pride in showcasing your personal style through each outfit you decide to wear for each round.
Confidence is key for any Panhellenic Woman!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Panhellenic. You can reach Whitney Seiler, Vice President of Recruitment, at email@example.com.
