National Panhellenic Conference - Sororities
(Alpha Sigma Alpha, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Sigma Sigma Sigma)

Partially-structured recruitment takes place in September. Interested women register for recruitment online and pay a fee ($25 through Sept. 5, $35 from Sept. 6-20, and $40 from Sept. 21-22).  The money is deposited into the Panhellenic account and used for recruitment expenses and Panhellenic programs held throughout the year. Panhellenic recruitment s a mutual matching process. As potential new members attend events, they rank each sorority from one to three according to their level of interest. Meanwhile, sororities also rank the potential new members based on who is the best fit for the organization. A computer system matches potential new members with a sorority based on those mutual rankings. Each potential new member may receive up to one bid. Not every woman is guaranteed to receive a bid; sororities are limited as to how many new women they can bid during recruitment. In order to maximize their chances of matching with a sorority, potential new members are encouraged to keep an open mind and consider the benefits of each chapter.
