The Recruitment Process


Formal Recruitment

The Panhellenic Formal Recruitment process allows potential members to visit each sorority to find a group of women that feels like a home away from home. Chapters will share information about their philanthropies, sisterhood, values, leadership opportunities, and personal and academic development programs. Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process. At the end of each round, chapters will selection potential members to invite back to their next event and potential members will select chapters as well. 


Our formal recruitment process takes place at the beginning of the Spring semester. Women are eligible to participate in Formal Recruitment if they have completed at least 12 Marquette University approved course credits.
