Arizona State Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment 2019
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 course 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.*
THE ABBY MONHOLLEN Recruitment Counselor of the Year

“My favorite memory of being a Recruitment Counselor was seeing how excited my PNM’s were for me to reveal my chapter and getting to watch them open the bids to their new homes.”

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.

LETTERS TO FAMILIES Families,
Congratulations on your studentâ€™s decision to participate in ASUâ€™s 2019 Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment! She is about to begin an experience that will be full of activities and opportunities as she makes new friends, creates memories, and builds connections on campus. Please encourage your student to come to recruitment with an open mind. She may have heard stories about some or 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 and the conversations she has in each sorority chapter. A recruitment participant will be the one living with the members for the next few years, and gaining 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 71 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.
A portion of the Panhellenic sororities are housed in the Greek Leadership Village on the Tempe campus. Opportunities to live in the Greek Leadership Village var y 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 meet some of the 2019 Recruitment Counselors. 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 members. Your student will be assigned to a group of Recruitment Counselors to go to for all recruitment questions and guidance during the recruitment process. Your student should direct any questions she has to her Recruitment Counselor. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me; I can be reached at 480-965-6822 or email@example.com.

THE Panhellenic EXPERIENCE On behalf of the Panhellenic Executive Council and the 14 National Panhellenic Conference Sororities (and two associate members) at ASU, I would like to welcome you to Arizona State University! We, the College Panhellenic Association, are the governing body of the NPC sororities on campus. These women represent over 2,500 women, from all campuses and majors, 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 experience, and lifelong friendships while still maintaining high academic standards. Each sorority at ASU has something unique to offer its members. Panhellenic women are well-rounded individuals 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 my email or at our office in the Greek Leadership Community Center. Sincerely,
firstname.lastname@example.org 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 otherâ€™s successes, happiness, and occasional sorrows. You will find that relaxing and laughing 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 lettersâ€“ it is about a sense of belonging, companionship, and community.
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.
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, Devilsâ€™ Advocates, Residence Hall Association, Order of Omega honor society, and many other organizations. Striking a balance between academics and extracurricular activities is an important part of college life. Involvement in both areas provides a well-rounded college experience.
Community Service Panhellenic sorority women contribute so much to the ASU campus and surrounding community. ASU Greek Life completed nearly 60,000 hours of community service during the 2018-2019 academic year. This service was completed through individual and group community service projects at local volunteer programs such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Club of America, Feed My Starving Children and many more.
Philanthropy CHARITABLE DONATIONS
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 $405,000 for charitable organizations during the 2017-2018 academic year.
PHILANTHROPY EVENTS Chapters hold philanthropy events throughout the year to raise money and awareness for their national philanthropic cause. Sororities and fraternities are able to come together and participate in each otherâ€™s events to impact the greater community.
Housing The new Greek Leadership Village is a student-led project that 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 was constructed in direct response to student demand and feedback and officially opened in the Fall of 2018. The Village is 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 organizationâ€™s standing rules â€“ be sure to ask about these policies and other housing questions during recruitment! Learn more about the Greek Leadership Village at greekvillage.asu.edu.
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 chapter included on ask questions about chapter dues cover
the financial matrix for each page 71 of this booklet and financial obligations and what before and during recruitment.
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.

What to wear We have put together a few pinterest boards to help give you inspiration for each day of Recruitment! These outfits are just ideas, not required of you. We want you to always be com-fortable in your own skin and with your own style! Every round, please wear comfortable footwear.
Round 1: “Casual and comfortable;” Shorts, Casual top, Sandals. Round 2: “Smart Casual;” Shorts, Blouse, Casual dress. Round 3: Casual sun dress or skirt; Family party or graduation. Preference: Semiformal, cocktail dress, summer wedding.
Recruitment tips Take notes! Writing down things you liked or didn’t like about each chapter right after each round on paper or in your phone which 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. 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, itâ€™s always nice to see a familiar face around campus. Bring shoes to change into while youâ€™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.

POWHER CONFERENCE Personal, academic and career success takes PowHER! That’s right, PowHER 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.
