NPC Sorority Recruitment
Discover the benefits of joining one of YSU's four National Panhellenic sororities: Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Zeta and Zeta Tau Alpha. A sorority can offer one of the most enriching experiences of a college or university. They offer their members with opportunities for social, academic, charitable, athletic, and professional gain. Through alumni associations, many sorority members are able to locate jobs and resources that are not available to their non-affiliated peers. The best part of being in a sorority is the instant connections and friendships you make!
National Panhellenic Council (NPC) Recruitment Process
The social sororities conduct a formal recruitment annually in September. Registration is required along with a $10 fee. Panhellenic recruitment is a mutual selection process. During the Information Sessions interested students will have a chance to get some information about sororities to determine if they are interested in joining.
Starting with the Open House Rounds, attendance is mandatory to join. During the Open House Round, potential new members visit all 4 of the Panhellenic sororities. After each round, the potential new members rank the chapters in which they are most interested and the chapters submit lists of women whom they'd like to invite back to the Philanthropy Round.
Potential new members visit up to 3 chapters in the Philanthropy Round after which the chapters and potential new members submit their final preference lists. During the Preference event, potential new members attend up to two chapters’ parties. To avoid conflicts with most classes, recruitment events are held in the evenings and on the weekend.
