arizona State Panhellenic sorority recruitment

2018


CELEBRATE ABBY MONHOLLEN

Encompassing the values of what being a sorority woman is, we celebrate the start of formal recruitment with our beloved Panhellenic sister, Abby Monhollen. In the summer of 2016, Abby Monhollen passed away after a tough couple months battling a sarcoma on her heart. Atop of a difficult coarse load to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a trauma surgeon, Abby graced our ASU and Greek communities in a multitude of ways. A proud member of Delta Gamma Fraternity, Abby seized multiple leadership positions within her chapter. Seeking additional ways to share her strong leadership style, Abby served as a Recruitment Counselor in Fall 2015, where she fell in love with Panhellenic and recognized a need to further a values based recruitment across our community. That same year, Abby was elected to serve as the Vice President of Recruitment for the Panhellenic Council. Although Abby was not with our council physically to lead our community in her position for the most recent recruitments, her contagious smile, Panhellenic spirit, and dedication undoubtedly shined down on our community and lead our council to carry out the largest formal recruitment to this date. *If you would like to make a donation to the Abby Monhollen Scholarship Fund, a link will be available on the Recruitment Registration Form.

NATIONAL PANHELLENIC CONFERENCE

When you join a National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sorority, you are not only joining a family of Greek women at ASU, but a family of Greek women across the entire world. In fact, there are more than 600 college and university campuses that are home to sorority women in the United States and Canada. NPC is the umbrella organization for 26 national and international sororities. Each sorority functions autonomously as social Greek-lettered societies of college women and alumnae. ASU recognizes 14 NPC sorority chapters and 2 associate chapters. The local Panhellenic Council, a smaller unit of the larger National Panhellenic Conference, is responsible for organizing activities of interest to all Panhellenic sororities on campus. No matter what city you end up in after college, you will always find friends and sisters. Alumnae chapters are set up throughout the United States and the world, allowing you to find a sense of home in any new place. While you may not initially know the women, you will know the bond that is shared in being part of the same organization.

LETTER TO FAMILIES Families, Congratulations on your student’s decision to participate in ASU’s 2018 Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment! She is about to begin an experience that will be full of activities as she makes new friends, creates memories, and builds connections on campus. Please encourage your students to come to Recruitment with an open mind. She may have heard stories about each of the chapters, be a legacy to a sorority, or have made the decision with a best friend to join the same sorority no matter what. These situations have the potential for creating disappointment, so please let her know the importance of making decisions based on the women she meets in each sorority chapter.

A recruitment participant will be the one living with the members for the next few years, and having sisters for life, so she should look for women she finds connections with, and a place she feels comfortable.

Sororities require a financial, time, and housing commitment. Each chapter has their dues listed on page 68 of this booklet. While listed, your student should still ask each sorority about these financial obligations. Though being a member of a sorority does involve a time commitment, many of our sorority women are able to maintain employment and internships, be involved in extracurricular activities, and still have an amazing sorority experience.

8 8


A portion of the Panhellenic sororities are to be housed in the newly constructed Greek Leadership Village on the Tempe camus. Opportunities to live in the Greek Leadership Village vary by chapter and are something that your student should ask about during recruitment. In the event that your student chooses not to join a sorority or is unhappy with her experience, please be supportive. There are many other options for involvement at Arizona State University. No matter what the outcome is, she will have met many new people. At the Greek Leadership Village Tours, your student will be assigned to a Recruitment Counselor. Recruitment Counselors are upperclassmen sorority women who have been selected and trained to help guide potential new women through the recruitment process. These women will temporarily disaffiliate from their organization to help provide the best experience for all the potential new memebers. Your student should direct any questions she has to her Recruitment Counselor. Should you have any questions, do not hesistate to contact me; I can be reached at 480-965-2275 or Alison.Burke@asu.edu. Sincerely,

Alison and Rachel Fraternity & Sorority Life Coordinator & Management Intern

THE PANHELLENIC EXperience On behalf of the Executive Board and the 14 Panhellenic Sororities (and two associate members) at ASU, I would like to welcome you to Arizona State University! We, the College Panhellenic Assocation, are the governing body of the NPC sororities on campus. These women represent over 2500 women in the ASU community. Entering college is an exciting time and there is no better way to make the most of your college experience than by going Greek! Being part of a sorority provides women with opportunities for involvement in community service, campus activities, leadership, and friendships while still maintaining high academic standards. Each sorority here has something unique to offer. Panhellenic women are well-rounded and strive for excellence in scholarship, service, and campus involvement. We hope that you consider becoming a part of this wonderful ASU tradition. On our website, azstatepanhellenic.com, you will be able to locate information regarding the chapters we have on campus, the Panhellenic Executive Officers and their roles, recruitment, and general FAQ! If you have any questions about recruitment or fraternity and sorority life in general, please feel free to contact me at our office in the Greek Leadership Community Center! In Panhellenic Spirit,

Mary Panhellenic Association President

SISTERHOOD Joining a Panhellenic Sorority is the beginning of creating a lifelong friends. It is a way for you to create a home away from home. One of the best aspects of joining a sorority is the friends you will make. You will share a bond with these women that is unlike any other. You will share each other’s successes, happiness, and occasional sorrows. You will find that relaxing and lauging with each other will be some of the most fulfilling times you and your sisters will have together. Sisterhood is more than wearing the same Greek letters– it is about a sense of belonging, companionship, and community.

15


SCHOLARSHIP Academic achievement is the primary reason for attending college and Panhellenic sororities recognize the importance of scholarship. The Panhellenic Association does not require a specific GPA to participate in recruitment as each member organization makes its own membership decisions. However, each sorority has a minimum grade requirement to be considered for membership and initiation. The average grade requirement to join is around 2.5. It is important to understand that if your GPA is lower than the average chapter requirement, your opportunities for joining may decrease. We encourage you to inquire about this during recruitment. The Panhellenic sorority women want you to be successful here at ASU! Panhellenic chapters offer study hours, assistance in time management and study skills, as well as tutoring programs. Each national organization also offers academic scholarships for women who meet the requirements. With permission from each potential new member, ASU will verify GPA, ASU enrollment, and number of credits enrolled in for each woman going through recruitment.

1616


LEADERSHIP Leadership development is one of the benefits of being in a sorority. As a chapter officer, you can further develop your leadership skills. Every chapter has multiple opportunities for you to get involved. Whether it is taking on a larger role, such as an Executive Board position, or even being on an event planning committee, there are leadership roles for everyone. Additionally, sorority women are also involved in campus-wide activities. Your chapter will encourage you to get involved. Greeks are members of numerous student organizations, including Undergraduate Student Government, ASU Athletics, Programming and Activities Board, Devils’ Advocates, Residence Hall Association, Order of Omega honor society, and many other organizations. Striking a balance between academics and extra-curricular activities is an important part of college life. Involvement in both areas provides a well-rounded college experience.

17


COMMUNITY VALUES Learn and Grow We are leaders and scholars – inside and outside the classroom. We cultivate skills for success in life. We better ourselves through the betterment of others.

Build relationships We form lifelong bonds. We foster an inclusive community between chapters, alumni, parents, and faculty. We build spirit, pride, and tradition at ASU.

1818


Give Back We care for the local and global community. We donate our time, talent, and treasure to those who are in need. Our impact is measured by the people we help and causes we support.

do the right thing We inspire maturity. We develop men and women of integrity, character, and honor. We are accountable for our commitments. We take responsibility for our actions.

19


COMMUNITY SERVICE Panhellenic sorority women contribute so much to the ASU campus and surrounding community. ASU Greek Life completed over 104,000 hours of community service during the 2016 – 2017 academic year, which is approximately 21 hours per member. Some of this service was completed through local volunteer programs such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Club of America, and many more.

There are endless opportunities to help benefit the community. The ability to give your time and talents to others is one of the most important qualities you will develop while being part of a sorority. In addition to volunteering time, the fraternity and sorority community raised over $544,000 for charitable organizations during the 2016-2017 academic year, which is approximately $110 per member.

2020


HOUSING The new Greek Leadership Village is a student-led project that will provide the ASU fraternity and sorority community with meeting spaces, council offices, retail space and housing facilities to support their leadership, growth and development for years to come. As the New American University and a top public research institution, ASU is leading the way with its commitment to excellence, access and social impact. Along with its efforts to transform higher education, the community continues to advance values-based, impact-driven individuals and organizations to ensure the health, growth and success of fraternity and sorority life at ASU. The Greek Leadership Village is being constructed in direct response to student demand and feedback and will open in the Fall of 2018. The Village will be located on campus on the southeast corner of Rural and Lemon off of Terrace Road. There are 12 sorority chapters at ASU with facilities in the Greek Leadership Village. Many of our chapters also maintain live-in policies as part of their organization’s standing rules– be sure to ask about these policies and other housing questions during recruitment! Learn more about the Greek Leadership Village at greekvillage.asu.edu.

21


FINANCIAL Joining a chapter comes with a financial requirement. You and your family should be aware of dues, fees, and other expenses before joining. The first semester is usually the most expensive, as most of the one-time new member fees occur then. Your investment during your collegiate years provides you with organization membership for a lifetime. Each chapter has dues that cover sisterhood and educational programming activities, philanthropic event participation, social events, merchandise, and sometimes travel to regional or national leadership opportunities. Be sure to review the financial matrix for each chapter included on page 68 of this booklet and ask questions about financial obligations and what chapter dues cover before and during recruitment.

2222


ANTI-HAZING POLICY Your experience during recruitment as a new sorority woman should never involve activities that make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.

Arizona State University does not tolerate hazing in any form, and therefore it is strictly prohibited. Additionally, hazing is a violation of all national fraternity and sorority policies, the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct, and is a violation of state and federal law. All ASU students are expected to follow the ABOR Student Code of Conduct. For more information, contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority life (asu.edu/GreekLife) or Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

RECRUITMENT TIPS Take notes! Writing down things you liked or didn’t like about each chapter right after each round in your iValU booklet will help you when you reflect on all the chapters you visited each day. Record names of women you talked to, what you talked about, notable characteristics of each chapter, and anything else you want to remember. You will be provided with the iValU booklet and a pen. Be positive and polite. Look at the sorority as a whole. Don’t judge the entire chapter by just one woman. Ask questions! It will help the conversation run smoothly and show a sign of interest. Be mature in your decision making. Be realistic about the members with whom you feel the most comfortable. Do not interpret any remark made at an event as assurance of a bid – one individual member has no way of determining these things. Make sure to get plenty of rest, drink LOTS of water, and eat before and throughout the day. Recruitment is a long process and you will want to be your very best self. Remember to make your own decision! If you have any questions, feelings, or confusion that you want to discuss, go to your Rho Gamma! She is there for you and wants to help you throughout the process. Become friends with the women in your recruitment group. Some of them could end up being your sisters and, if not, it’s always nice to see a familiar face around campus.

2626


Bring shoes to change into while you’re walking from chapter to chapter. You will not want to wear those brand new heels for eight hours on a hot August day. Smile! Have a great time, meet as many people as possible and enjoy the experience to the fullest.

Family weekend Family Weekend provides you with a great opportunity to introduce your family to your new college life and sorority sisters. Fraternity and Sorority Life will host several events throughout the weekend and sororities and fraternities often partner together to host a variety of events for their families.

Homecoming Homecoming is an exciting time for both current Sun Devils and alumni as they return to their alma mater to show their Sun Devil spirit! Many Greeks participate in the University-sponsored festivities as volunteers and as spectators. There are also competitions among the organizations to show the campus which organization has the most school spirit! Many sororities plan alumnae events, offering a great time for sorority women to reconnect with alumnae and celebrate being Greek!

GREEK WEEK Greek week and greek sing Greek Week is an annual spring semester tradition that unites all Greeks to promote community pride while engaging in meaningful community service and fun team building events. Sororities and fraternities partner together on teams to compete in activities such as a trivial bowl, athletic competitions, and a community service event. Our culminating event is Greek Sing, a competition hosted in Gammage Auditorium to raise money for Valley of the Sun United Way. This past Greek Week, our Greek Sun Devils raised an amazing $70,000! Greek Week 2018 will be in April 2019.

POWHER CONFERENCE Personal, academic and career success takes PowHER! That’s right, Pow-HER– because all women have the capability to be powerful. In their workplace, at the university, in their family, and long into the future, women can bring power to any environment. Last year, 250 women joined us for the third PowHER women’s conference at ASU, coordinated and sponsored by the Panhellenic Council. Speakers touched on a variety of topics, answering important questions such as what does it take to be a poised and successful woman? How can you be successful at ASU, in your chosen career, and in your community? From leadership development to networking and work/life balance, Panhellenic and the PowHER conference aim to empower women in areas that affect so many of us in today’s society. It is our goal to encompass a wide variety of topics that are influential in every college woman’s life both as a student at Arizona State University and beyond.
