- Be yourself! The selection process is mutual, so the best way for your fit to be found is by showing who you are and allowing yourself to open up to great conversation with the sororities!
- We understand it is in the beginning of the semester, and the nights will be late. Do your homework as soon as you get it, don't let it pile up! That way, you can have a fresh mind after you have found your place with your new sorority.
- The midwest weather is tricky! Wear a coat and sweats to the rounds over your clothes to stay warm and change before the rounds start!
- Enjoy yourself! Recruitment, while tiring, is such a fun experience to meet other people and find girls you could bond with for life.
