Panhellenic Informal Recruitment

Panhellenic Informal Sorority Recruitment

What is informal recruitment?

Informal recruitment is a more intimate and casual recruitment process for our Panhellenic sororities. Not all chapters are eligible or will participate in informal recruitment. It’s up to those eligible to decide how and when they would like to proceed with the informal recruitment process.

Panhellenic helps facilitate communication for informal recruitment but does not traditionally host informal recruitment events. 

Each chapter will coordinate their own informal recruitment events and these will range in size, style, and coordination. Informal recruitment is truly that - informal. It is individually coordinated and each chapter will operate on their own schedule.

Who participates in informal recruitment?

Chapters have the opportunity to opt-in to the informal recruitment process at any point that their membership number dips below campus chapter total.

For Spring 2020, Miami’s campus total is 213. Total is set within 72 hours of Bid day following formal recruitment, and Miami’s Panhellenic Association sets total based on the Median chapter size of Panhellenic sororities on campus.

For Spring 2020, chapters participating in Informal Recruitment are:

  • Alpha Chi Omega
  • Alpha Epsilon Phi
  • Alpha Omicron Pi
  • Alpha Xi Delta
  • Delta Delta Delta
  • Delta Zeta
  • Kappa Delta
  • Phi Sigma Sigma 
  • Zeta Tau Alpha

How can I participate in informal recruitment?

To participate in informal recruitment, you must meet the same eligibility requirements as those who participate in the formal process

Panhellenic provides a list of women interested in informal recruitment to all eligible chapters. Panhellenic will also email all women who have requested to be on that list and let them know which chapters are actively participating in informal recruitment.

Most chapters will either use the list provided by Panhellenic or generate their own list and invite women to specific programs or small meet and greet events. 

Can I reach out to the chapters one I know which will be participating?

You can, if you wish. Panhellenic will profile each chapter and how to reach out to them on the Miami Panhellenic Instagram and other social media.
