Panhellenic promotes the common interest of all sororities at Miami and serves as the unifying, governing, and coordinating body of the sorority community. The Panhellenic Association is comprised of an annually elected executive council and a delegate from each affiliated sorority. Through programming, Panhellenic seeks to provide personal enrichment and knowledge to all sorority members. The Panhellenic Association offers a wide variety of programs for members covering topics including: health and wellness, academic excellence, community service, and philanthropy. Panhellenic also sponsors and coordinates Miami’s sorority recruitment program. The influence of the Panhellenic Association is a crucial part not only of the sorority community, but also in promoting the betterment of the entire Greek Community at Miami University.

What to Wear

Thinking about what you need to wear should not be stressful. We encourage everyone that participates in recruitment to wear whatever they feel the most comfortable and confident in! Check out Panhellenic's website and Instagram page for ideas on what you should wear for all four rounds of recruitment.

Recommendation Letters for Potential New Members

Recommendations are letters and forms regarding a potential new member that are sent to a sorority chapter before recruitment begins. These letters are used to learn more about a potential new member, with a focus on her high school activities and hometown involvement. Recommendations are typically written by an alumna member of the sorority receiving the missive.

Recommendation letters are not required to participate in women's recruitment at Miami University. Every sorority has a slightly different recommendation process. We encourage anyone interested in writing a letter of recommendation for a Potential New Member to check out each sorority’s national headquarters web site to learn more about the recommendation process and where to send forms and letters. You can find each chapter's letter of recommendation information on Panhellenic's website.

Physical recommendation letters are typically mailed to the chapter’s recruitment chair or advisor (a sorority alumna who helps the chapter with recruitment). If you are unable to find a local contact, recommendations can be mailed to the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Miami University. Please address the envelope as follows:

ATTN: Recruitment Chair
**Sorority Name**
2029 Armstrong Student Center
Miami University
Oxford, OH 45056

There is no deadline for submitting recommendations but sending as early as possible will give chapters time to review all recommendations before recruitment starts in February.
