Deciding to Join. The choice to join a sorority is an exciting and important decision. Use the
time during recruitment to ask questions, get to know current members and ensure you fully
understand all aspects of sorority life. Membership in a sorority is purely voluntary and so you
are the one who decides what is best for you. Make sure this is something you are truly interested in. Being in a sorority is a wonderful experience but it is also a commitment.
Choosing a Sorority. Perhaps the hardest part of Recruitment is deciding which sorority you
like best and which one you want to join. Each sorority at Knox has its own unique members and
traditions. Go into recruitment with an open mind and be willing to take the time to really get to know each organization and its members. Take this unique chance to see what each sorority has to offer.
Take time in making your decision as to which sorority fits you the best. The sorority sisters you choose will be not only your sisters through college but close friends throughout your life.
Reflect on how you can both gain from and contribute to each sorority.
Don’t let your friend’s decisions influence yours. You will meet amazing new people no matter which sorority you decide to join. A sorority that fits well for a friend may not fit well for you.
Keep in mind that recruitment is a mutual selection process between you and each individual
chapter. Therefore, limiting your choice to a single sorority may end in disappointment.
Formal Recruitment Schedule
Mandatory Recruitment Meeting
Sunday, January 8th at 7 p.m. in the Lincoln Room
This is a mandatory recruitment event during which Potential New Members will meet with
members of the Panhellenic Council to learn about the recruitment process. Afterwards, Potential
New Members will have a chance to talk with representatives from each sorority. Questions will
be answered and schedules for all future recruitment events will be distributed. Dress for this
event is casual.
If you are unable to attend this recruitment event but intend to participate in the recruitment
week, please inform Laura Pochodylo (email@example.com) and Kristi Weller (firstname.lastname@example.org)before 6pm on Sunday January 8th at 6pm.
Round 1: Sisterhood
Monday, January 9th and Tuesday, January 10th; meet in the Lincoln Room at 6:30 p.m.
The Sisterhood Round allows Potential New Members an opportunity to visit each sorority, meet
their members and learn more about the chapters. Each night will consist of two, one-hour
parties; over the course of the two nights Potential New Members will visit each of the four
sororities. Dress is casual but make sure to dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes for walking between the houses.
If you will be late or are unable to attend either night of the Sisterhood Rounds, you MUST
inform Laura Pochodylo (email@example.com) and Kristi Weller (firstname.lastname@example.org)before 4pm on the day of the event.
Wednesday, January 12: No recruitment events.
Round 2: Philanthropy
Thursday, January 12; meet in the Lincoln Room at 6:30 p.m.
The Philanthropy Round consists of three parties, each lasting for 40 minutes. During this round,
Potential New Members will learn about each chapter’s philanthropies. They will also have an
opportunity to participate in activities directly benefiting those philanthropies. Take this opportunity to ask more in-depth questions about sorority life and continue to get to know each
chapter’s members. Dress is casual but make sure to dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes.
If you will be late or are unable to attend the Philanthropy Round, you MUST inform Laura Pochodylo (email@example.com) and Kristi Weller (firstname.lastname@example.org)before 4pm on the day of the event.
Round 3: Preference Party
Saturday, January 14; meet at 10:30 a.m. in the Lincoln Room
This round consists of up to two parties, each lasting one hour. This is the most formal round of
recruitment; it is suggested Potential New Members wear outfits that would be appropriate for
church, temple or to a nice dinner; nice skirts and tops or dresses are suggested. Each chapter has
unique traditions for their Preference Party and Potential New Members should take this final
opportunity to have any questions answered.
Preference Card Signing
Saturday, January 14; Lincoln Room, Seymour Union 1pm-2pm
At the conclusion of the Preference Party Round, Potential New Members must go Ferris Lounge
in Seymour Union and rank the chapters first and second in order of preference (known as
signing a bid card). Rho Chi Recruitment Counselors will be on hand for any last minute
questions or concerns. That evening, each Potential New Member may receive a bid to join one
chapter. In the case a potential new member does not receive a bid they will be notified by phone
by 6:30 p.m.
Be aware, that, as stated in the National Panhellenic Conference Manual of Information, “Any
woman signing a Membership Recruitment Acceptance Agreement and receiving a bid at the end
of the membership recruitment will be bound by the agreement for one calendar year at the same
college or university.” This means if a Potential New Member signs a bid card and then chooses
not to accept an offered bid, they will be ineligible to participate in any recruitment event for the
Each night of formal recruitment, you will attend fewer parties than you did the night before.
This happens through a process known as “mutual selection.” At the end of each round, you will
get a chance to decide which sororities you are most interested in visiting again. The sororities
are limited in the number of Potential New Members that can be invited back and thus must
reduce the invitations they extend to continue on to the next round. After you and the chapters
have done this, your preferences are matched to find the best fit. You will find out which parties
you will attend at the beginning of the next round.
The official invitation to join a sorority is known as a “bid” and is extended on the last day of
recruitment after the conclusion of Preference Parties. If you are matched with your first or
second choice, you have received a bid. Keep in mind that you will receive only one bid. If you
choose to sign a preference card, you are committing yourself to accept that bid. If you receive a
bid but decline it, you will be ineligible to participate in any formal or informal recruitment event
for the next year.
Because sororities can only accept a maximum number of new members, it is possible that you
may not receive a bid. If this is the case, you will be informed by 6:30 p.m. by phone on
Saturday, January 15. In this case, you are not excluded from attending other recruitment events
throughout the year – please do not think Greek life is no longer an option! Potential new
members often receive bids through the informal recruitment events that many sororities hold
If you do not receive a phone call: congratulations! You have received a bid to join a sorority.
Go to the Lincoln room at 7 p.m., where you will pick up your bid and be met by your new
What is Silence?
Recruitment can often be an intense and emotional time. In order to prevent undue pressure on
Potential New Members and allow them to make an independent decision, chapter members
observe “silence.” This means that sorority women and Potential New Members should
communicate during recruitment rounds but are at all other times limited to casual greetings and
communication in regards to academics and extracurricular activities.
It is also recommended that Potential New Members do not discuss their own impressions or
choices during Recruitment. This is to help make a decision that is truly one’s own. By observing
this silence, Potential New Members are given the opportunity to make decisions about their own
preference with an open mind. Remember that sorority women will be observing this policy
throughout Recruitment Week and prohibited from social contact with Potential New Members.
Please do not think they are ignoring you!
Questions to Ask
Just as you are presenting yourself to sororities, sororities are also presenting themselves to you.
Therefore, it is important to ask questions that will allow to truly compare each and help you
with your decision making process. Make sure to ask open-ended questions so that you can get
in-depth information. The following are some good questions to ask:
1. What aspects of the sorority encouraged you to join?
2. What other campus organizations have you had the opportunity to participate in as a
result of your sorority experience?
3. What are the financial expectations of a new member? What does this money cover?
4. How long is the New Member program and how much time will I need to devote to it?
Will I have time to be involved in other areas around campus?
5. How does your sorority promoter scholarship?
6. What is your favorite part about being Greek?
7. What philanthropy does your chapter promote and what opportunities will I have to get
8. Is it possible to maintain a part-time job and still be involved with the sorority?
9. How will sorority life benefit me in the future?
10. How is your sorority involved with the larger Greek community?
11. How are alumni involved with your sorority and what types of activities do you do with
12. What leadership opportunities does your sorority offer? Which of these are available to
me as a new member?
The following regulations were put in place by the Knox Panhellenic Council in order to help
Potential New Members make unbiased decisions concerning sorority membership and to ensure
a fair and smoothly run recruitment. Your cooperation in adhering to these regulations will be
greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or feel one of these rules has been violated, please

Top 10 things to remember about recruitment
1. Dress warmly and wear appropriate shoes! You will be walking between the houses at
night when it can get cold and snowy. Dress is casual for most of the recruitment events –
it is more important to stay warm and be comfortable than to worry about “impressing” a
2. Ask questions! Members will be more than happy to tell you about their chapters and
Greek life in general.
3. Keep an open mind when meeting each sorority. Don’t go into recruitment with your
heart set on joining a certain organization. Take the time to get to know each of them –
you may be surprised!
4. A sorority that may be right for your friend may not be right for you. Take the time to
think about where YOU will be happiest.
5. If you can’t attend or will be late for a recruitment event, let Laura Pochodylo and Kristi Weller know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
6. If you feel shy or nervous, remember: this is a natural part of the excitement of
recruitment. The current members are just as nervous and excited to meet you too.
7. Don’t fake it. Be honest about who you are and what you are looking for in a sorority.
8. Take the time to meet the other girls going through recruitment. These could potentially
be your new sisters!
9. Your Rho Chi are always available to answer questions and address concerns you may
have. Even if you just need help in making your decision, talk to any of the Rho Chi.
10. Have fun! In the end if you decide not to join a sorority, the recruitment process is still a
great chance to meet other people and have a good time.

Cost and Price Break Down
The cost of joining a sorority is an important factor for many women. Although each sorority has
different payment plans and many scholarships available to help in financial aid, the cost is still a
major part of joining a sorority. The cost, also known as “membership dues” or “dues,” help aid
the sororities in multiple capacities. Not only do dues cover national requirements, but they are
also established to cover the cost of philanthropy events and social events within the chapters,
such as recruitment week. Although paying dues is not the most fun you will have as a member
of a sorority, they are a vital part of being a member. Paying these dues is necessary in order for
the chapters to run smoothly and function at their highest level.
Each sorority’s dues are different.* Some are higher than others. However, sometimes the higher
dues include more, such as the cost of t-shirts for the whole year. Other sororities may have
lower dues, but then the member has the responsibility of paying the added cost for each t-shirt.
Please keep in mind these are a general estimate/ rough break down from last year’s dues and not
every event or t-shirt is covered. Sometimes something unexpected comes up that you have the
option to pay for, or not.
*Note: New Membership dues are higher than regular membership dues in order to cover the
cost of your new pin/badge, among other new member fees. Listed below are just the regular
If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to dues or need a more in depth explanation of
them, feel free to talk to any of your Rho Chi recruitment counselors during recruitment week.
Once a bid card is signed at the end of the week, you are contracting yourself to pay these dues.

The Panhellenic Council
The word “Panhellenic” is derived from the Greek word meaning “All Greek.” As national
sororities increased in number, they formed the National Panhellenic Council in 1902. There are
twenty-six national sororities that make up The Council.
The Panhellenic Council at Knox College serves as the governing body for all four sororities. It
fosters intra-fraternity relationships and communication between chapters. The Panhellenic
Council coordinates programs to strengthen all aspects of the Greek system as a whole.
In addition to these tasks, members of the Panhellenic Executive Board serve as your
Recruitment Counselors (Rho Chi) during your recruitment period. In this capacity, these
sorority members serve as unbiased guides during the entire recruitment period. They are
available to answer questions, help solve problems, and give advice. Feel free to ask them about
anything at the college; they will be happy to assist you in finding the answer.
Recruitment can be a very confusing and perplexing experience. Knowing why you are going
through and what you are hoping to gain will help you come to a decision that is best for you as
an individual. Your Rho Chi Recruitment Counselors are here to help you make the decision
that is right for you!
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect my Recruitment days to be like? Recruitment can definitely be tiring
both physically and emotionally with all of the “rushing” around. However, it is up to you to
decide how positive a recruitment experience you will have. A good attitude is essential to
enjoying this opportunity to meet so many new people. Though small talk may become tedious
and repetitive, every house is a new house and should be given an equal opportunity to get to
know you and for you to come to know them.
How do the sororities decide whom to invite back for each party? As your schedule of
parties is reduced from round to round, the number of women each sorority is allowed to invite
back is also reduced. Every woman who participates in recruitment has something to offer a
sorority, but sororities are not able to keep everyone they would like to. Just as sororities must
make the decision to release you, you must also make the decision of which sorority you do not
want to return to.
What if I am shy? Some of the sisters in each house are as nervous to talk with you, as you are
to talk with them. Every member of a sorority contributes her individual talents to the sisterhood
and chapters want members with a variety of personalities. There is no reason to feel insecure
when speaking with sisters; sororities want to impress you as much as you want to impress them!
What if I only want to be in a certain sorority? Potential New Members often experience the
greatest disappointment by beginning the recruitment process only wanting to be in one sorority.
Sorority membership is more than wearing certain Greek letters. It is giving your time and
energy to the sorority, agreeing to abide by rules and regulations, and living up to high
expectations. Do not make decisions based on stereotypes and other opinions. Keep an open
mind and make the decision that is right for you!
I am a legacy to a sorority—is there anything special I should know? Every Potential New
Member is considered an individual and legacies should not feel obliged to join a particular
sorority on the sole basis of a family connection. Similarly, the chapters are not obligated to
especially consider a Potential New Member simply because she is a legacy. Each chapter,
however, has its own policies in consideration of legacies.
I have heard that some sororities have different reputations—how should I handle this
information? The only opinion of each chapter that should affect your decision is yours.
Chapters vary from campus to campus and from year to year depending on the membership. If
you allow someone else’s perceptions to influence you, you may not be satisfied with your
choice in a sorority. Each chapter is made up several women who possess a range of
personalities, talents and qualities. If you hear any derogatory remarks about a particular chapter
or the sisters in the group, we ask that you please disregard those comments. If you have any
questions regarding rumors or inappropriate comments, please direct them to a Panhellenic
Executive Board member.
If I go through Recruitment am I obligated to join? No, many women choose to go through
Recruitment to meet new people and make friends. Recruitment is the opportunity for you to
visit all four sororities, get a glimpse of Panhellenic and Greek life at Knox, and assess whether
or not you would like to be a part of the Knox Greek Community. Please note, however that
“Any woman signing a Membership Recruitment Acceptance Agreement and receiving a bid at
the end of the membership recruitment will be bound by the agreement for one calendar year at
the same college or university.”
Do I have to follow the Recruitment schedule and go to all the events? Yes! The object of
recruitment is to give yourself the information you need about the chapters in order for you to
make the best decision; therefore, we encourage you to attend all events. If you are unable to
attend due to class, or other obligation, please let the Panhellenic Secretary, Kimberly Anderson
know the evening before the event you will be missing. If you choose to miss parties or events,
you may be released from recruitment.
Special thanks to our Faculty Advisors, Kathleen Drake and Heather Poppy. Also, to Vicky
Romano, Cindy Wickliffe, Danette McKillip, and the women of National Panhellenic Council
for helping us in the preparation process. To all the women of Alpha Sigma Alpha, Delta Delta
Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi for hosting recruitment week. And a final thank
you to the entire Panhellenic Council for their tireless work as Rho Chi recruitment counselors.
With all of your hard work, we are excited for a wonderful 2011 recruitment week.
