Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment

panhellenic recruitment

Welcome to the Panhellenic Association at NC State! We are so excited to continue growing our community and for you to learn more about our Recruitment process. At NC State, our community is composed of 10 National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) Sororities and 1 Associate Member Chapter. Rooted in their commitment to academic excellence, philanthropic pursuits, and lifelong friendship, each chapter provides an incredible opportunity for individual growth, social and civic engagement, and meaningful relationships.

During the Fall of 2021, the Panhellenic Association will be participating in a hybrid Formal Recruitment over the course of Labor Day Weekend (September 3rd-6th). Friday, September 3rd, and Saturday, September 4th, will be held virtually on Zoom. Sunday, September 5th, and Monday, September 6th, will be held in person. Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process between potential new members and our chapters, and is divided into four days–Get Involved, Make a Difference, Live N’ Learn, Preference and Bid Day. With some of the Formal Recruitment events falling on school days, please note that arrangements will be made to accommodate any academic schedule conflicts!

All students interested in participating in the 2021 Panhellenic Formal Recruitment must fill out an application on our registration site, CampusDirector. Please fill out this application thoroughly, knowing that it is your initial communication to chapters. Chapters will review these applications before meeting you for the Get Involved (first) round of Formal Recruitment. Additionally, all students who intend on participating in formal recruitment are required to attend a virtual Recruitment Kick-off Orientation on Wednesday, September 1st. Two sessions are provided: 7:00 PM and 8:15 PM, both will be held via Zoom. Please attend whichever fits your schedule best.

Before proceeding to the application, please note the following things you should be prepared to answer/have in front of you:

  • List of high school activities, honors, or awards
  • List of any college activities, honors, or awards
  • List of any community involvement, including volunteer roles and civic organizations
  • Emergency contact information
  • Have thought about the following questions: What is motivating you to join a Panhellenic Sorority? What are you looking for out of a sorority experience?
  • A headshot you would like shared with the chapters (*please no one else in the picture, does not need to be professional but should be an accurate representation)
  • There is a nonrefundable $100.00 required application fee. This fee covers everything you will need for recruitment.
  • Our chapters hold academics in high esteem, and there is a 2.5 minimum cumulative GPA standard required in order to go through recruitment.  Ag Institute students may participate in formal recruitment, but do not meet the eligibility requirements of most organizations as prospective members must be matriculated into an undergraduate degree program to join.

Recruitment Applications are NOW OPEN! Registration for Formal Recruitment will open on May 7th, 2021 at 9:00 A.M. EST  and will close on September 1st, 2021 at 11:59 P.M. EST. The application will take about 15 minutes to complete.
