Fall 2016 Sorority Recruitment
Panhellenic recruitment offers an opportunity to meet chapter members and peers, while learning what each sorority has to offer. Throughout the process, Recruitment Counselors (Gamma Chi's) will answer all questions that may arise while participating in recruitment. Participating in the recruitment process does not require a person to join a chapter, but enables her to explore and learn more about the campus and Greek community. This is a great way to meet new people and find out about different ways to get involved on campus. This process is intended to be a positive, fun, and enriching experience for everyone who participates.
Fall 2016 Schedule of Events
- Thursday, August 11 (only specific campus locations will be available)
- Friday, August 12 (all campus locations available for Sorority Recruitment move-in)
- NOTE: Students who arrive on Thursday, August 11 will be charged a $60 early move-in fee (this fee is separate from the Recruitment Registration fee) and the fee will be billed to the student's UAConnect account. Students who arrive on Friday, August 12 will be charged a $30 early move-in fee (this fee is separate from the Recruitment Registration fee) and the fee will be billed to the student's UAConnect account.
- Beginning in June, once students have registered for Sorority Recruitment, you will receive an email from University Housing that will allow you to pick an Arrival Time for one of the two dates above (August 11 or 12).
