Fall 2023 Primary Recruitment Schedule
We are in the process of planning a wonderful Fall recruitment for you all and are so excited to welcome you to both the Panhellenic and the Fraternity and Sorority Life communities. The best way to prepare for this process is to make sure you are registered, email with any questions and check out information on each of our chapter’s below.
Also keep in mind that we have three councils that are home to sororities so make sure you check them all out to find which would be the best fit for you. More information about each of our councils can be found here.
Fall primary recruitment for the Panhellenic council is the best chance to meet all of our organizations and see which might be a good fit for you. Primary recruitment is also the only time all fourteen of our organizations are open to accept new members during the 2023-2024 school year.
