Letters of Recommendation
This page has been updated as of April 7, 2022.
Chapters would like Letters of Recommendation to be sent to chapters beginning on June 1. If you have already sent in letters of recommendation, don't worry! They will not be discarded.
Letters of Recommendation are simply letters of reference written by an alumna of a sorority to her sorority’s chapter at the University of Arkansas. It is appropriate and highly encouraged for you to obtain your own letters of recommendation. You can begin this process by informing friends, teachers, and relatives that you are participating in formal recruitment at the University of Arkansas. The alumna can either write a personal letter of reference or obtain a standard form from National Chapter Headquarters. Many local Alumnae Panhellenic Associations will also provide forms to women. The University of Arkansas Panhellenic Council does not provide these forms.
Letters of Recommendation must be sent directly to individual chapters as directed below. Any letters must be postmarked by August 1, 2022.

Recommendations for the 2022-2023 academic year should be made using our online Recommendation Form. Members can log in to their member profile to complete the official Recommendation Form and submit information directly to the appropriate collegiate chapter.
Kappa Delta chapters do not require any of the optional recruitment forms for a woman to be considered for membership. Recruitment forms can serve as a helpful introduction to the chapter and provide additional information about a potential new member (PNM). Having an optional recommendation does not guarantee an invitation of membership. If you wish to fill out one of the recommendation forms, follow the instructions at the link below and submit online, or mail it to the provided address.
