Anonymous asked: Ahhhhh! You have been soooo helpful! Thank you! So the school I am hoping to attend has the spring semester deal. What is recruitment and what does it entail? How do the sororities know who they want? IE how do i make myself wanted? Haha. What goes down in initiation? Should I be concerned? Do you suggest being in a sorority? Thanks soooooooo much!! XOXOXO
You’re very welcome! I’m so glad I could help!!
Recruitment varies a lot based on your school, so I don’t want to say too much & have it not be true for your campus! Basically, you will go to rounds each day where you will have the opportunity to meet each sorority. Some sororities you’ll absolutely love, so you will rank them higher. There will probably also be ones that you’re not that into, so you will rank them lower. Don’t worry about ranking… they’ll explain all of that to you when you get there! Each day when you arrive to recruitment you’ll know exactly which sororities you’ll be seeing. It will be exhausting, but it will be a lot of fun!
There’s probably no secret to making yourself wanted. If your school offers opportunities to meet the sororities in the fall (ie: each sorority on my campus hosts fall recruitment parties), go to them. It will help to know some girls before you go into formal recruitment. Be careful not to get yourself a bad reputation during first semester. If you become “that girl” who sleeps around with everyone, pukes at every party, etc. the girls will probably hear about it. In recruitment, just be confident, be positive, & be polite and I’m sure you’ll be fin!
Do not be concerned about initiation. It’s amazing.
And, obviously I recommend being in a sorority! It’s by far the best decision I made for myself at college. It’s not for everyone, so if you get to campus & change your mind, that’s okay too!! But I recommend at least going through rush wherever you go!
