Formal Sorority Recruitment occurs in the fall semester, right after school begins. It is the best opportunity to meet all five chapters. Participants are encouraged to keep an open mind throughout the process. Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process, meaning that both the potential new members and the sororities are making selections throughout the process.
