    • Absolutely! Being an upperclassmen or transfer student does not limit your options during recruitment.
  • Is there a GPA requirement to participate in recruitment?
    • No, there is not a GPA requirement to participate in requirement. Each Panhellenic sorority has their own GPA requirements for membership. While there is no requirement to participate, we highly recommend that recruitment participants have a 3.0+ high school GPA or 2.8+ college GPA. Last year, the average GPA among recruitment participants was a 3.11 unweighted high school GPA and 3.44 college GPA.

  • What is a recruitment counselor/Rho Gamma?
    • A recruitment counselor (Rho Gamma) is a current Panhellenic sorority member that has been selected to help guide potential new members through the recruitment process. They are here to help answer any questions you may have about the recruitment process!
  • If I sign up for recruitment am I obligated to join a sorority?
    • No! You are not obligated to join a sorority. If you decide that a sorority is no longer something you're interested in, you can withdraw from the process at any time.
  • How much does it cost to be a member of a sorority?
    • Each sorority charges dues each semester to be a member of a sorority. Please click here to view the costs for each. You will have the opportunity to ask each sorority questions about finances throughout the process.
  • What is the MRABA?
    • The Membership Acceptance Binding Agreement (MRABA) is the final step of the recruitment process. It is a one-year binding agreement where PNMs rank the chapters they visited during preference round. PNMs have several options to consider before signing. Click here to learn more.

    • No, they are not required. Typically, only an alumna of a sorority can write recommendations. Recommendations must be sent directly to the sorority and typically each headquarters has an online recommendation form. Please note that not having recommendations will not negatively impact your recruitment experience.
