Don't forget to register with the collegiate Panhellenic at the university you will be attending!
The Panhellenic’s goal is to assist all Northwest Harris County potential members in having the best recruitment possible resulting in the maximum number of girls becoming members of a sorority.
A sorority letter of recommendation (Reference, RIF) is a practice used by some NPC member organizations to provide an opportunity for potential new members (PNMs) to be introduced to a sorority chapter on campus. It highlights pieces of the PNM’s accomplishments and experiences that show she will be an engaged member of the sorority and uphold the values and expectations of membership.
References are done on a voluntary basis and at the discretion of the alumnae based on set requirements (e.g. grade point, leadership activities, reputation, etc.) This procedure DOES NOT guarantee that you will receive a recommendation.
Check with the Panhellenic website for your school, research each individual sororities’ requirements for recruitment. Each member group has their own policies regarding letters of recommendation (references, ROF). For those who take letters of recommendation, start looking for alumnae to help you. Make family and friends aware of your intention to participate in the recruitment process. If an alumna offers to write a recommendation for you, you may accept their offer.
It is to your advantage to submit all completed registration information, including names of women writing you a letter of recommendation, to the Recruitment Chairman as soon as possible after the Sorority Recruitment Information Session on February 26, 2023, You should do this even if you are undecided on your choice of schools or if you are attending a school with deferred recruitment. All recruitment information must be received by May 1, 2023, for fall and deferred recruitment.
