Interested in participating in formal recruitment and learning more about sorority life? Sign Up for Recruitment
The sororities follow a formal recruitment schedule during the fall semester. Formal recruitment is structured so that all Potential New Members (PNM’s) can attend an equal amount of events for each sorority. This also allows for each sorority the amount of time necessary to get to know all the PNM’s who are coming through recruitment. *Each PNM is required to attend three out of five events for each sorority during the recruitment period to be eligible for an invite to Preference Parties and then potentially receive a Bid from any of the sororities.

By signing up for formal recruitment, PNM's will be registered to participate and attend the recruitment events in the fall. There are two options for registering; online at Sorority Recruitment or in person at one of the CPA Information tables in the fall. Signing up does not require PNM's to participate in formal recruitment, however, if PNM's wish to participate, they must sign up.
All PNM's will be assigned to a Recruitment Counselor during formal recruitment. Recruitment Counselors are mentors for PNM's and serve as guides during all recruitment events. If there are questions, concerns, or issues regarding recruitment, the Recruitment Counselors are available to address them. All Recruitment Counselors are well equipped with the knowledge and experiences of formal recruitment as well as each of the sororities.
