NPC Fall 2014 Recruitment Week
August 12-16, 2014 (The week prior to the first day of class)
We are glad you are interested in participating in Fall 2014 Panhellenic Formal Recruitment! Recruitment offers you an opportunity to meet chapter members and other young women participating in the Formal Recruitment process, while learning what each sorority has to offer.
Throughout the process, Recruitment Counselors, (Gamma Chi's), will answer all questions that may arise while participating in recruitment. Gamma Chi's are upperclassmen sorority women who have temporarily disaffiliated from their sororities. They are trained in the recruitment process as well as counseling skills, and they are your mentor throughout this entire process.
Participating in the recruitment process does not require you to join a sorority. It does, however, enable you to explore and learn more about the ASU campus and our Greek community. This is a great way to meet new people and find out about many ways to get involved on the ASU campus. This process is intended to be a positive, fun, and enriching experience for everyone who participates.
Formal Recruitment Early Move-In Info
You will notice that Arkansas State Panhellenic Formal Recruitment occurs the week prior to the first day of class for the Fall semester. It is our hope that potential new members are more comfortable participating in Formal Recruitment prior to classes beginning. It can sometimes prove quite a challenge for potential new members and members to balance Formal Recruitment with the adjustment of new classes, new experiences, and--for some--a new temporary home. We want to make this experience as stress-free and enjoyable as possible!
Potential New Members who are registered for Formal Recruitment will be assigned an early move-in date for their previously selected residence hall. Following the Formal Recruitment registration deadline of July 28th, the Office of Greek Life will provide the list of recruitment registrants to Residence Life. If you register for Formal Recruitment by the July 28th deadline and have an on-campus housing assignment, you are guaranteed to have an early move-in date of August 10th. You will be able to move into your residence hall anytime between 12pm and 4pm on August 10th. Our Recruitment Counselors/Gamma Chis will be on-site ready to assist you and your family with move-in!
